Reviews for Zookeepers Cafe

Great coffee! Awesome wedges too!

This is a big thank you… but not about the food (actually the cod was delicious and perfectly cooked). It’s because – having an early onset of Alzheimers – I left my precious hat in Zookeepers and didn’t catch on until I was landing back home in Christchurch. I’m very attached to that hat.
Paul (may a thousand suns light up his name) posted it back to me and refused money for the postage. How about that? My faith in human beings is restored in a place that calls itself Zookeepers. Thanks Paul, I’ll call in next time I’m down and thank you properly. Michael.

Two of us went for lunch. We had just flown down and the guy I was with had lived in Invercargill. We went on his recommendation.
Either he had a poor memory or the place had gone downhill. The service was slow and uninterested in us and they preferred to stand at the bar eating their own lunch while we waited. The food was poor and my burger was very average and none of the ingredients seemed overly fresh. They did make a good milkshake however.
A place trading on it’s past.

Poor would have to be really bad, but my cooked breakfast was barley average.

Only one other customer , I started with a coffee and ordered the Bacon Benedict, This was very average , 2 muffin halves , bacon , spinach , poached eggs and splodge of mayo or something and side of lettuce leaf and a couple of slices of cucumber.
This was only just average, no LOVE went into this meal.
If you want muffins, eggs, bacon or bagels then I would say go to McDonald’s they take these ingredients and they make it work and it cost only a fraction of what I paid.
The style and theme of the place is cool but you can’t eat them.

I usually enjoy Zoos, it’s a nice relaxing place to go have a quiet drink and chips or wedges. However, my partner and I decided to have lunch there the other day and it was TERRIBLE! We had were so unimpressed we asked for a refund. We ordered a chicken and apricot burger which was DROWNING in apricot sauce. It went all over the plate, hands etc…it completely ruined the burger. We also ordered nachos which tasted like they had scraped out old mince pies and heated it up and tossed it on the nachos. The service wasn’t so flash either and when the owner cleared the plates he didn’t even ask how it was. He strutted back to the kitchen throwing a pen out of his back pocket over the bar as he went…not very professional.
I won’t be ordering a meal there again. However the wedges were good. So it is a good place to nibble

Excellent service and great meal, good prices, their only downfall is once we had finished our meal and they took away our plates we were never asked if we wanted dessert, which we did,I got the feeling they wanted to finish up early, but it was only 7.30 by the time we left.

lovely hot chocolates but pathetic service! We walked out recently after standing and waiting fto be served for 10mins! The owner was upstairs chatting and no other bar people or waitresses around.
