I come here often as I work nearby. I am a major fan of the coffee, I like a macchiato so there's nowhere to hide if it's no good. The fruit tarts are to die for. I really like how the staff are always clean and in uniform. Good work guys I like what your doing

This place does great coffee and sells a huge range of the yummiest European pastries. Their pies are fantastic too!

I had tea and a pre made lamb sandwich on tasty French bread. The real stars of this place are the variety of coffee, teas, pastries & cake slices. Everyone seemed very happy with their beverages and tasty baked goodies. All the staff was friendly and efficient .

Had come into Motueka to try out a recommended cafe but it was closed on Sunday's, had driven all the way from Nelson to try so went to Patisserie Royale instead and was not disappointed. Delicious, quality food. Also happened to get their food as part of Wilson's Abel Tasman tour package and it was brilliant then as well.

Popped in for a light lunch and very much enjoyed their pies and coffee. Prices were good and service was friendly and efficient too. We sat outside which was pleasant.

The constant line up of people was a good indicator that it was popular so decided to get in line..Service was quick.... The Potato Top and Chicken and Cambert pies were Amazing. Mouth watering taste sensations. It was the best pies we have ever tasted. We also had the mud cake and cheesecake too. MMMMMmmm delicious. Would it be rude... More

We have been visiting this cafe/bakery for several years now and it never disappoints. The food is a mix of NZ (filled rolls, ficelle, and excellent interesting pies) plus wonderful cake and pastry products. The coffee eclair and the beestings are wonderful.

Had lunch as a couple. The gluten free egg wrap is brilliant as was the chicken croissant. Would definitely go back.
