Located In Kaiapoi, Just 20 Minutes North Of Christchurch

Paris for the Weekend is an exciting new cafe that offers Country Fare with a French Flair.

Located in the historical former railway station building in Kaiapoi, opposite New World, the cafe offers a wide range of teas, coffees and cold drinks plus delicious home baked food.

The cafe is a mix of old world charm, warm friendly service and a hint of Paris set to some soulful French music. Teas and our ever popular High Teas are served using bone china from yester year. Breakfasts, platters, crepes, lunches and the usual array of sandwiches, savories, cakes and scones are available as well as gluten and dairy fee options.

There is outdoor dining available, wifi access and excellent heating and cooling to suit the seasons. Ample car parking is available within a few metres of the cafe plus wheelchair access. No parking metres here to spoil your day.

Beautiful decor and character inside, great cabinet food available and yummy looking all day menu too. Friendly helpful staff, can’t wait to go back!
