I love to write good reviews on restaurants but in this instance it is not possible.
Dined at Drexel’s Restaurant to be let down by dry pancakes with no syrup that was $3 extra and I was being stubborn as I believe they go together like toast and butter.
The staff were rude and we felt like we were putting them out just by being there.
My mother in law had a Caesar salad that didn’t come with an egg so had to order that as an extra. I mean come on Drexels, sort it out.
I would start with the staff.

Had to try this place after hearing only good things got the most expensive meal, the farmers breakfast, also brought a fruit salad. The fruit salad had about 3 grapes, a couple of bits of pineapple and some rock melon. The farmers breakfast had no flavour and had no flavour. Eggs were disgusting

our family always enjoy Drexel’s – the kids platters are a real hit for our little ones and hubby and I love the Drexel’s special. It is always a warm and friendly place to be and the service is good too. We have been often and find the meals very consistent, and the price is doable for a family of 7.
The children love the toast and spreads and even though they sometimes make a mess in their efforts to do it themselves, the staff are always genuinely sweet.

Never have I had so much microwaved food on my plate since I was a poor student. Pretty gross for the price. Disgusting coffee and sausages, couldn’t stomach either for the high price you pay. Costs the same as a restaurant where everything is cooked fresh. Tl;dr microwaved processed food – restaurant price, the mcdonalds of breakfast restaurants.

Like the concept of a breakfast restaurant! Service was great, coffee average, food great. Waitress was very helpful and more than happy to accommodate to my tastes (I don’t like eggs). Had the eggs benne minus the eggs with spinach and bacon instead. Was very tasty, and a good sized portion.
Love the complimentary toast and spreads. Friends breakfast also looked great. Tried some of her waffles which were tasty.

This place is so awesome. Great coffee, great food, lovely staff. I can’t fault it. The best breakfast we have ever had. The waffles were amazing. Prices were reasonable and there are different options for the size of your meal. I’ll remember this next time because I ordered way too much. The only problem I have is that there isn’t another Drexels in Christchurch because it’s always so busy and hard to get a table if you don’t book ahead.

Delicious place to eat brunch. Very American and enjoyed the atmosphere too. Have been here several times with great food and presentation every time! The free toast that came with our meal was nice too. A little pricey but worth it!

I love Drexel’s! The meals are always a good portion and so tasty. And icecream sundaes for breakfast, you can’t go wrong! The wait staff are brilliant too! Definitely book in advance though, you don’t want to miss out!

We love going to this awesome breakfast restaurant. The staff are always friendly and the food is FANTASTIC! They are always booked up, which is a bit of a pain but its well worth the wait! The serving size is always generous and the food comes out hot. We try and find any excuse to go here haha.

I really enjoy coming to Drexels for the great food. I love the idea of a breakfast restaurant.
The staff seem to rush around a lot, and is sometimes hard to get their attention – but otherwise friendly. I loved the birthday candle on my pancake!

The concept of a breakfast restaurant sounded intriguing but we were swiftly disappointed when we got there. Our waitress was particularly rude and treated us as though we were an inconvenience. To Drexels credit, we complained to the manager and she handled it very graciously.

We recently had the pleasure of dining at the Riccarton branch for the first time. The restaurant is light and bright and has a good busy vibe. Staff are very pleasant and efficient and the homemade hash browns are delicious. The coffee is not particularly strong but it is bottomless. We now prefer this branch over the town one and will be back there soon.
