Happy Friday neighbours,

Do you have a favourite local business that you'd like to share with us?

As part of Neighbourly and Stuff’s ‘Local Likes’ campaign, Cantabrians are asked to nominate their favourite local businesses, and share what makes them so great.

Receiving multiple nominations, Bohemian Bakery in St Martin’s has proved an early frontrunner for Christchurch’s top local entity.

The bakery has been lauded for having “the best sourdough in the city” and “the most divine vegan pain au chocolat.” Their salty pretzels are also a crowd favourite, and the staff are always good for a laugh.

Do you have a place you'd like to add? Please let us know below.
