A cool cafe vibe: a visit to Riccarton’s popular Seven Cafe

The atmosphere in Seven Café at 11am is warm and welcoming. “This is coffee time and people really enjoy getting together for a chat,” says Vivi Xu, café owner.

As one customer is about to leave the café she remarks, “I especially like the vibe here. Do you cater for private functions? I have been looking for somewhere casual and not too big for my daughter’s 21st birthday celebration.”
She has come to the right place. Seven Café is very popular for 21st birthdays – or any birthday bash for that matter. It’s perfect too for corporate functions, engagement parties, baby showers or hens’ parties. From 5pm onwards, the café transforms into a function space for the exclusive use of the customer who has booked it.
“We have room for up to 50 guests,” Vivi says. “Our usual liquor licence is until 11pm, but we can assist customers to apply for an extended licence if that is what they require. In keeping with the informal theme for which we are known, we provide platters with all different kinds of finger foods – meats and cheeses, savoury items and sweet treats. People can simply help themselves.”
But Seven Café offers more than the inside of the café itself. Its outdoor marquee and courtyard can be booked for groups of 10-30 during the usual opening hours. It’s a unique meeting space ideal for breakfast, working lunches and meetings – and of course the café’s famous and much sought-after ‘High Tea’.
