Sumner Cafes

Ocean Cafe

What better place is there in Christchurch to enjoy a casual dining experience while watching the surfers, the SuPs, the seagulls and the swimmers - located on Sumner Esplanade, down by the clock tower.

Joe's Garage

Anton and Jess Matthews are the owners of Joe's in Sumner, and would be delighted if you would join them for a coffee, a bite to eat and to enjoy the sun in either of their outdoor areas.

Coffee Culture

Coffee Culture Sumner is where it all began. Many years on and our staff will be found most mornings sharing their opinion on everything from rugby to women's fashion with a crew of regulars who pick up their takeaway coffee on their way into Christchurch.

Underground Coffee

Underground Sumner recently moved from Colombo Street City Center due to earthquake damage. Underground Sumner is now open Thursday, Friday, Saturday nights starting at the end of October for drinks, meals and live music! Come down and check it out!
