We met up and Lushingtons Café with relatives (had been here last year), The food looked lovely, our sammies were great but the cake we had was dry. The coffees were middle of the road - much room for improvement. The person taking the orders at the counter was hopeless - she kept missing what we wanted, then mucked up the visa transaction and then delivered one coffee short (5 ordered). Not good folks.

On our route from Oamaru to Christchurch, we had been told that there was a great place for a coffee and a bite to eat, but we weren't told the name and so we took a chance stopping at this cafe and garden centre. We were not disappointed, my wife had some delicious scones and I a chocolate brownie. The price was reasonable and the service very good

This is a great spot to browse, buy and recover with a treat and a cup of tea! The plant and gift selection are fabulous and the cafe has beautiful options to sit inside or on a terrace.

Lushington’s Garden Centre Cafe - a brilliant find on our journey from Geraldine to Hanmer Springs. The restaurant was a lovely bright room and the food was amazing. Husband had poached eggs on ciabatta toast with hollandaise and ketchup - both homemade, and I had a toasted bagel with smoked salmon, cream cheese and homemade pesto. Top quality ingredients, good portions, well presented and lovely service too.

I took my elderly and blind mother for lunch. There was good space between the tables to navigate successfully. We were seated by the end window on a swealtering day, in the shade, and were lovely and cool.
The service was good and the food was great. Mums crispy chicken and avocado salad was very generously portioned with the named main ingredients. My lamb was beautiful. The coffee was very nice and we had a slice from the cabinet instead of dessert.
We were also able to buy large avocardo's as we left to take home.
We will be back
