It was the advertised special and wasn't at all expensive but really..... My suggestion would be that they put a couple of bucks on the price and give us an authentic taste of France. Nice accents alone don't cut it...More

Great little authentic French cafe in the middle of NZ. How bizarre! Yet charming. French waitresses too. And French goodies on the shelves. Lovely atmosphere. We only stopped for a cuppa and that was good. Also nice to sit outside.

We ate breakfast at this delightful little French Restaurant. The staff all French (or French Kiwi Students) and the food was delicious. More than you could eat. Crepes, very nice, French toast to die for and I am told the Omelette was superb. High recommended.

Very welcoming (French) servers, excellent food. Sit outside and watch the world go by: you could almost be in France.
