Looking for somewhere toasty and warm this winter? Then THIS is your place. The temperature may require you to de-layer substantially, but you’ll definitely feel right at home with the sweet atmosphere at Gentle Giant.
On Sunday morning we decided to take a cruise out towards Sumner to catch up with friends and we just happened to spot this bad boy as we drove through Ferrymead and we couldn’t pull in fast enough. The exterior aesthetic was clean wooden panelling, with big glass windows and a stone feature wall which upon arrival we discovered was a neat outdoor fireplace to keep the courtyard nice and cosy. New and modern interior makes this cafe/bar easy on the eye, and I would have happily had any of the decor in my own home. It’s attached to a gorgeous homewares store, Casual and Country, where I want to buy all. the. things.
An impromptu drive over to Lyttelton to find awesome coffee led us to the Lyttelton Coffee Co. And boy-oh-boy did we find awesome coffee?! The day has finally arrived – I was so impressed by the incredibly delicious coffee that it officially gets my first 5 outta 5 coffee bean rating on the blog!
