While riding in Christchurch, New Zealand, we stopped at a newly opened café on 158 Ferry Road. Called Gentle Giant, we found out it is also known as the big brother of Istitu Café,
Owned by sisters May and Ji Shin, Gentle Giant was created with the goal of enhancing the café experience for customers. Furnished with vintage details and recycled wood, the welcoming atmosphere of place matched warm tones.
To top it off, there is an open kitchen where you can watch the chef work. The menu has options for both breakfast and lunch.
It doesn’t stop there. In addition to the great coffee and savory dishes, Gentle Giant has an endless list of delicious smoothies. As such, the café is already quite well known.
Whether you’re looking for a great cup of brewed coffee or a small, savory bite, Gentle Giant can satisfy your palate.
