This is a little Parisian style café on the main street. They offer a gluten free option.
The eggs benedict is a great serving. Order a smoothie and it will be cool, tasty and very delicious. It will also come with a little jug of extra smoothie to top up! How many places do you get that?
The person who served us had a lovely French accent. She was very friendly, which added to the atmosphere and pleasant visit.

We stopped here for a late breakfast - this little cafe is on the main shopping street in kerikeri just beside Macdonalds, it is set back off the road slightly behind some trees and bushes. They do have a small sign out. They cater for gluten intolerant diets. There is plenty of sitting inside/outside and outside but under cover. Quirky small sculptures and a life size mannequin dressed as a chef greet you as you enter. The food is very nice, I had a generous eggs Benedict with smoked salmon. Definitely good value and very good service.

We took my elderly father-in-law for lunch during the school holidays. From the moment we stepped up to the counter, everything was great. A fantastic Ray Charles song could be heard on the sound system and the friendly staff joked with us as we ordered chicken burgers and corn fritters. The hot chips were plentiful, crunchy and perfectly cooked. The fritters and delicious sauce, mushrooms and bacon were gobbled with glee! Fast and super friendly service has the customer planning to return.

I'm not saying it's the best cafe in the world - but it might be. Everything was good! The atmosphere was great, the food delicious the service, the indoor outdoor flow and above all the friendliness of the lady that served us.

My children have dairy allergies and she was able to suggest many things they could eat. Regardless of the Gluten free thing the food is great anyway regardless of your preferences.
The cafe is also very family friendly so if you're in Kerikeri or just in the area it is well worth popping in for a coffee of a feed at this cafe.

It is right by McDonalds and vastly superior to that. I only wish there was a higher rating than "Excellent" perfect might do.

Very friendly staff; we often drop there after our Pilates class for coffee/tea. Weather permitting, one can sit outside as well and their fountain adorned by cutlery is worthy noticing. Their cabinet food is very yummy (love that peach cake), and recently I tried the Santeez salad and adopted it for making home. Can definitively recommend.
