Fantastic crepes, especially the savoury ones with mushroom, ham & cheese! We watch Autumn the smiley happy waitress make them in front of us, very insightful. The corn fritter were also very delicious and full we were ready to shop. Perfect breakfast to start the day!

Just been served ice cold burger and fries... shame as I had heard such good things. Perhaps chef can ensure food is taken to table within a few moments of it been ready. I suspect as understaffed my burger had sat and fees had also sat..,

Awesome little cafe with amazing French counter food and a full menu. Frequently busy so don't be in a rush.

I ordered the french toast from the menu which was really delicious. They have a crepe station which i will definitely be trying out next time.. Items in cabinet are quite expensive but definitely...

I lived in France and I know how a French bakery has to look like and this was not at all French. No French authentic ambiance, this bakery is like all the other bakeries in New Zealand, except they have more French choice. But the croissants were not at all French, very dry, too much selection of very average sandwiches..... More

Had a Steak and Kidney pie - looked nice but was disappointing (filling underwhelming). More selection in desserts, and not too bad. Somewhat pricey for what it is

Well the coffee was pretty good but that'd be it. We had a apricot pastry tart & tiramisu. The tart was bland and plastic tasting & the tiramisu tasted so fake and artificial we had a mouthful each & no more. Horrid. There were no serviettes & no cutlery available. We asked for two cake forks & were given after... More

We don't often have time to stop here but when we do it does not disappoint. The coffee is good and the cakes are out of this world. Not enough meat in their pies though.

Working nearby for many years I've finally decided to explain why I'm an infrequent visitor and prefer to walk by to iRide (who make great coffee). The first average is for service which can often be surly and while not all staff are like this there's often this vibe, particularly if you interrupt them while they stock the shelves first...

We had lunch here the food is delicous but because of its popularity you can wait a long time for your drinks, we waited 25 minutes! They could really do with extra staff during there lunch times.
