Luciano Espresso Bar
Luciano’s Espresso Bar was started by Luciano Marcolino, a man who has won barista of the year many times over in New Zealand. It has been a favourite with the locals of Christchurch for a good while now. This is not the sort of place you want to visit if you’re after something slimming. It is the perfect place, however, if you want something properly indulgent. A Sunday brunch that will banish any hangover ghosts that might be rattling around the old noggin and satisfy any salty or sweet cravings you might have. Washed down with some of the best coffee in the country, you’ll be feeling right as rain in no time at all and ready to visit again. The Banoffles (chocolate buttermilk waffles served with fresh banana, housemade salted caramel ice cream and peanut praline) are one hell of a way to brunch like a champion. Want to add bacon? ‘Course you do.
