About Mt. Beautiful Two Rivers Cafe
& Wine Tasting Room
The Mt. Beautiful Two Rivers Cafe and Wine Tasting Room is located on Route 1 between Christchurch and Kaikoura in Central Cheviot. It features a beautifully renovated, light and airy space that preserves historic aspects of its original structure (the Dalgety Building), while incorporating indigenous materials and other elements from the Mt. Beautiful vineyard estate.
A long, clean concrete slab counter (making up the wine tasting bar) runs North to South with a walk-through gap in the middle, representing the iconic “Chasm” that runs through the Mt. Beautiful Vineyard, separating it into Northern and Southern sections. Ample seating is available both on a raised mezzanine level as well as in a main dining room of the cafe.
Additionally there's an outside dining area that features a wraparound deck overlooking a manicured lawn, an eye catching water feature, sculpture garden and planted natives around the perimeter. The deck is covered offering shelter from both sun and rain, making it the perfect year-round venue for al fresco dining with friends.
