Mid-Canterbury must-do: Cafe Mayfield

Pick a good day and inland scenic route 72 offers you a near-perfect backdrop for a stunning drive through Canterbury.

Stretching from Amberley to Geraldine, this picturesque road trip offers views of the freshly dusted Southern Alps sandwiched between the deep green sweep of the plains.

Along this gorgeous stretch and just an hour out of Christchurch, Mayfield is the spot to grab a bite and unwind or just stop in for a coffee and a chat. This warm and welcoming local favourite is conveniently located in the heart of Mayfield village and has been in the same family for over a quarter of a century. It boasts an extensive dine-in menu, plus a wide range of fast and tasty offerings in the cabinet if you are looking to grab and go.

For breakfast and brunch, locals swear by the eggs Benedict and the hearty big breakfast. Later in the day, their extensive variety of delicious burgers are highly recommended.

Cafe Mayfield is the perfect cap on a fabulous mid-winter day trip in a remarkable part of the country.
