The Lotus-Heart was established 13 February 1996 as a small café at 595 Colombo Street, Christchurch. On 7 January 2008 The Lotus-Heart restaurant opened its doors in the heart of the city in the historical original Chief Post Office building (built in 1879) in Cathedral Square on 7 January 2008. You will find the entrance beneath the Clock Tower. The original café continues to operate in conjunction with the restaurant.

The Lotus-Heart is dedicated to conscious living, healthy eating and strives to create a global cuisine naturally. Using the freshest ingredients, locally grown and organic where possible, pure vegetable oils, vegetarian cheese, avoiding the use of microwaves unless specifically requested due to time-constraints. Whilst the restaurant is pure vegetarian, the choices and requirements of others are deeply respected and there are daily options for vegan, gluten-free, onion/garlic free and raw food diets.

Serving a wide-ranging selection of drinks par excellence, The Lotus-Heart is continually researching, trialing and discovering high quality, nourishing beverages that soothe the mind and delight the palate. Our resulting drinks menu is extensive, comprised of unique and hard to find boutique teas and tisanes, freshly squeezed juices, fabulous smoothies, superfoods, tonic elixirs, fairly traded coffee, organic herbal coffees, cultured drinks – kombucha, ginger beer and kefir – prepared on site, specialty drinks from around the globe, and much more. With over 120 choices you are sure to find a beverage to suit your taste, temperament and mood.
