About Black Betty

Black Betty Cafe opened for business in February 2011 and since then has grown to become an integral part of the Christchurch café scene.

Located in a renovated warehouse space on Madras Street, we have a huge seating selection, but beware, we fill up quickly over lunch and on the weekends, so get in early!

We do take table bookings for any day and also have a private meeting room for hire that can be reserved during the week.

Black Betty specialises in mouth-watering coffee, serving our famous BBIV Espresso blend. Enjoy the taste of Black Betty at home.

We serve a full brunch menu which runs every day until 2.30pm as well as a fully stocked cabinet of freshly made lunch items and sweet treats.

In 2014 Black Betty was the proud winner of the Zest Food Awards Cafe of the Year and has made the top 10 in subsequent years.

Black Betty stocks Switch Espresso coffee beans for you to purchase for home or office use, and we can grind it fresh for whichever machine you use.

We also sell a range of soft-brew equipment for the more coffee-savvy aficionados who want to take coffee making to the next level at home!
