This was a lovely simple meal for four in lovely surroundings by Lake Pupuke. It was cold sitting outside in the southerly wind but the food was good and the chocolate fondant, Basque cake and lemon tart were all fantastic.

A real gem in Takapuna. Such a lovely view to enjoy a coffee and pass the time. We had the crepes and it took me back to Paris. Highly recommended
