Everywhere is busy today. We found this place slightly of the main square. Waited 5 minutes for a table and then got very good service. Good coffee, very nice breakie. Eggs bene, french toast and a croissant. Breakfast menu goes to 3 and lunch starts at 11am so heaps to choose from. Everything looked delish. Ask for butter and pepper,... More

Had brunch, the French toast was great, the toast itself the best I've had, came with kiwi fruit, pineapple and strawberries, only minor letdown was the berry coulis tasting a little like jam. my partner had the Le grand and loved it. Nice coffee and great service. We used a grabone voucher but would have happily paid full price.

A group of 5 of us went for brunch. We had eggs benedict, big breakfast, omlettes etc. Everything was cooked perfectly and arrived within 15 mins. Really good table service from our French waiter and all at a resonable price. Great decor and very popular with the local business district.

This small place (reservations therefore recommended) is maybe a bit hard hard to find but worth visiting. Authentic French (even the staff) with a good variety of choices.

lovely sunny Monday morning, a table outside was reserved for us. Surrounded by flowers sat at a cute petit table - a little taste of France :) The pate was as smooth as silk, nice touch to be asked if we would like more bread (as I had wolfed it down!). A huge menu to choose from at this time... More

We went to this cafe for breakfast before taking the Fullers' tour to Rangitoto Island. Only a few places were opened at at 10am plus and L'Assiette was one of them. Overall service was very good and the food was good. My children shared the Le Grand breakfast and it was tasty and had generous portions. However, I was a... More

Visited here for breakfast while staying at the nearby Waldorf Celestion Apartment Hotel. Not surprisingly, this is very French with good coffee and breakfast. Like most food in New Zealand, and especially Auckland, the meal seemed a bit pricey. Good quality, nice service.

Love this place! A great cafe to have brunch with friends and family in the city. Their movie night is also a great event to book!

The food was ok but not spectacular. Warning. They have highly magnetic menus. No idea why. They stick to the table. And they can completely stop your watch working. I have a high end French watch ( irony) . Now up for a $200 fix it. An expensive and angry breakfast. Don't risk it.

I have eaten here 100 times. About 3 months ago we stopped because the food and service had deteriorated so much. Because it was convenient we went again on Sunday. It's worse. Old favourites on the menu like the salmon omelette are gone, the French toast has been changed to dry toast (no syrup) and fruit. The service has got... More

Hi Ian. First of all thank you for your feedback. I will definitely be looking into the problem and make sure it doesn’t happen again. We have had a high staff turnover in the past three months which made it difficult for us to keep consistent service. Regarding the menu we had a lot of feedback saying some of our... More
