It's a hidden-secret, Cafe Matariki. Tucked on the opposite bank of the river from Castle Park, about 50m from Bristol Bridge - it's a cafe with a passion for fresh, seasonal and locally-sourced food. Chef Janice Heskett knows her stuff as well, having spent years running an award-winning Clifton Deli, a well-known spot amongst the area's foodies. Each day she prepares a new selection of dishes - typically inspired by the Antipodes, normally healthy (try their rejuvenating juices), but with the odd naughty-sweet-treat thrown in.
The cafe comes hand-in-hand with the Pacific Yoga studio - so this is the perfect place to improve your wellbeing through quality grub and a burst of exercise.
Food is all home made and delicious, well with a visit
Café matariki is such a special place, can't recommend enough! Great food, friendly staff and a really relaxing atmosphere. Always feel refreshed and recharged after a visit here.
Snuggly lovely cafe hidden between the river and the new buildings, with a nice healthy choice of toasties and simple, yet tasty lunch dishes... and my favourite, a large variety of vegan cakes! Yum yum! By the way, the staff is super nice!
It's a really nice spot, hidden away by the river. I go there for lunch to escape the 'Chat' from my colleagues and I love it.
Delicious fresh food and brilliant service.
Really lovely atmosphere, peace and quiet in a busy part of town! I love it.
