The Shroom Room Cafe
The Shroom Room Cafe – the name just oozes character. Whilst not strictly in Christchurch – it’s just around the corner in Lyttelton – it’s close enough and brilliant enough for us to sneak it into our list, and when you go there yourself you’ll definitely forgive us. As you might expect, the emphasis is put on all forms of fungi, and the menu is totally vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free. If you’re a sucker for some creamy mushrooms on beautiful toast for breakfast, then this is the place for you. It’s a hip and happening place, so if your visit coincides with the farmer’s market on a Saturday, then prepare to potentially wait for a table.
