Launched in 2017, in the Silverstream Development on the fringe of Kaiapoi, Urban Revival has been a central hub for the community ever since.
With its aim to “revive with fresh foods”, Urban Revival has an emphasis on healthy, delicious and local ingredients. Noted for its freshly made cuisine the Urban Revival menu spans the day, starting with an extensive breakfast menu through to delicious café offerings and evening dining on Fridays.
Their fresh-baked muffins and scones are a hit each morning, best served alongside a hot coffee, for which they use a custom blend created and roasted locally by Richard at Three Llamas Coffee. Or for something a little different, a range of delicious raw slices, and fresh blended smoothies will set you up for the day – try the mixed berry banana with coconut water! Fully licensed, Urban Revival has five beers on tap and a selection of the best local wines – perfect for that lunchtime tipple or Friday night happy hour from 5pm.
