This cute cafe offers French food and kiwi . There is a good variety of cabinet and blackboard food available. The atmosphere is comfortable and the coffee is excellent.

Lunch time - ordered a toasted ham & cheese sandwich - bread was barely warm, let alone toasted - ham was some sort of diced meat(?), and the "cheese" a partially-liquid spread of some kind - any resemblance to French-style Cafe offerings has long passed, although the seafood chowder was ok - will look for somewhere else next time in...

Just popped in for coffee - which was good. The location is beautiful - tucked away down Casabella Lane. The service was a touch blunt, impersonal and matter of fact for my liking. Would not rush back.

I had a cup of tea with a friend , first visit here. NIce setting down a little lane off Barton Street in the CBD. Choose indoor or outdoor. I was outdoor at 3.30pm and it was not cold.

It offers a good range of food displayed in a cabinet in addition to a menu selection. The cafe is airy, well ventilated and clean.... More

Casabella Lane offers a wide variety of shops including Saint Lazarre Café. Not an authentic French café but pleasant staff and nice food options. Great to have outdoor seating to enjoy in the summer weather.

Had lunch here a couple of days ago. Friendly staff, coffee ok. first time I have ever had a chicken filo with rice instead of the usual ingredients which was pleasantly nice to eat. Not an authentic French café but what I like about this place is where it is located. sit either inside or outside in the courtyard.

Food is average but coffee and service is very good. It's not really an authentic French cafe hence the food is very average
