The big quake of 22 February 2011 in Christchurch permanently closed our Colombo Street cafe and rendered our Cathedral Square location inaccessible.
Since that time, The Lotus-Heart consolidated into one location at 363 St Asaph Street, between Fitzgerald Avenue and Barbadoes Street (on the right hand side of the street).
This is the now only location currently operating.
