After the old forum software breaking in a way that we were unable to fix, we've migrated the site to a new platform.

I read a thread on HB linking to this story, an amazing collection of cafes. Perhaps readers have their own favourites they could add? We saw a couple of funky cafes in containers on the edge of the red zone in Christchurch when we were in NZ.
