Sumner Social has brought a buzz to the Christchurch coast since its opening in late 2021. The vibrant restaurant and bar is located near the beach and is perfect for all-day dining with epic views of the sea.
The 5-star reviewed eatery is housed in an all-yellow building featuring a bright bohemian-inspired space, decked out in hanging lanterns, florals and wooden fixtures. Plus, there’s an outdoor pet-friendly dining area with yellow and white parasols. It’s almost like a beach club hangout!
Expect a seasonal menu that changes often filled with seafood, brunches, shared platters and more. For instance, brunch highlights include Sourdough French Toast ($18) and Scrambled Tofu Tacos ($18) that go dashingly paired with a Bloody Mary or Breakfast Margarita.
Meanwhile, crowd-pleasers on the main menu include Fish & Chips ($28), Seafood Chowder ($24) and Lumina Braised Lamb ($38), to name a few. Those with a sweet tooth can finish with the likes of Sticky Toffee Pudding ($15) or Apple Strudel ($15).
