One of Christchurch's favourite cafes

Welcome to Under the Red Verandah Cafe and Bakery

Established in 1997 in the heart of Linwood, Under the Red Verandah Cafe and Bakery sticks closely to its roots, using local, fresh ingredients (organic when possible) and delivering nourishing, delicious food. It's a family run business with a great team paying attention to give the best customer service.
Whether you're looking for a quick catch up with a friend, a long leisurely brunch with family in a private dining rooms, or a business meeting space we cater for it all.
We are a busy cafe so it pays to book, but we will do our utmost to squeeze in any last minute diners.

Since 1997…

Under the Red Verandah Cafe, was a distinctive landmark building on the corner of Worcester and Tancred Streets until February 2011 when a destructive earthquake shook our old girl requiring its demolishment shortly after. It was over 100 years old, and had a sketchy yet rich history.

Owner Mandy Heasley believes Under the Red Verandah Cafe still provides an ‘urban oasis’ in the heart of Linwood, offering a unique blend of food, coffee and service all set within a charming new building and tranquil courtyard.

Part of the cafe’s success and popularity is its ability to cater for everyone and all occasions, whether it’s a quick bite, takeaway coffee, brunch, lunch or business meeting.
