A tempting variety of delicious fresh baked goodies, savoury and sweet, great coffee, fast friendly service, comfortable seating ... we could not ask for more from the lovely smiling young couple who took over this business just two months ago. We hope they stay. Our visit was all good ...This wee cafe is hidden off a side road in Khandallah,... More

Set in a small cottage seating is a little cramped, but there are plenty of tables on the deck. Dogs are welcome on the deck but watch out for the neighbourhood cat. Right next to the Khandallah summer pool, the playground and the track up to Mt Kaukau. Loads of parking, has a change table for babies, and access for... More

What a beautiful café next to the Khandallah swimming pool and at the start of the entrance to Khandallah Park. Sit outside and enjoy the surroundings, fantastic staff and great friendly prompt service or get a takeaway coffee/tea and head up to the park. Look out for 'Jimmy' the local cat who comes to visit outside the café. He is... More

This is a good little café off the beaten track out of the city, but only a 10 minute drive away. Set by a bushwalking track, and local swimming pool, it is surrounded by trees and greenery. I use the outside deck on a nice day and read the local paper ( supplied) while sipping great coffee, and listening to... More

Went for brunch, relaxing atmosphere, staff were excellent, smiling, helpful, especially when we moved tables and the service was excellent. The food and drinks were very nice, would recommend. Right next to Khandallah park and pool, went for short walk in the park with the tui's, had a go on the flying fox, great start to the day. Thank you... More

A bunch of neighbours went for a walk up to Mt. Kau Kau to try to lose some of the weight gained from overindulging over Christmas and went up from Broadmeadows up to the summit and back down to Woodmancote Road in Khandallah. On arriving in Khandallah Park, we stopped at Café du Parc for a well-deserved coffee and bite.... More

I've had fine cake and coffee here before and it's a nice spot. However I went for breakfast the other day and definitely won't be rushing back. Full breakfast was really disappointing. Hash brown was not a hash brown but a mashed potato patty. Scrambled eggs came out as an unappetising day-glo omelette. Sausage was greasy (and I just don't... More

This is a really beautiful wee cafe to visit, especially on a sunny day as the outside eating area is gorgous looking out to the khandallah public pool , and surrounding native bush at the base of Khandallah park. The cafe is an oasis at the end of a challenging walk up to Mt kau Kau or after a play... More
