Breakfast time and stumbled upon this place. Food is excellent, staff friendly, and the coffee good. Hard to find a better place in Rotovegas for a cafe stile meal. Highly recommended.

Lovely cafe with a French flavour, particularly in their superb crepes and galettes. Much else available including traditional breakfasts. Not much else to say - just outstanding!

Lovely friendly cafe, great selection of food, amazing crepes and great staff. I like the Parisian feel to the cafe, postcards, maps and photos of France. You are welcomed and farewelled in French. The table numbers are little eifel towers with french greetings on them....More

Good coffee, too. Just a little slice of France that makes mornings a little nicer. Just down the street from the Quest.

Lovely food and friendly service. Owners are French so an authentic atmosphere. Little bit disappointing the fillings for the sweet crepes were pre-made so couldn’t adapt slightly but still tasty

Being greeted with a friendly "Bonjour!" As you enter the Cafe de Paris is one of its unique charms. The French owners, Alain (from Lyon) and Valerie (from Pau) settled in Rotorua 12 years ago.They provide a wide variety of French cuisine and an all day breakfast with a very competitive price of $9.90 . You can taste their unique almond croissant or beef bourguignon. They offer savoury galettes (delicious crispy, buckwheat crepes, gluten free and organic) or dessert crepes both with a great range of authentic French fillings. It is the original French cafe in Rotorua where you can have the taste of authentic French food surrounded by some "ouh, la! La!" Or "Voila"...Alain and Valerie welcome you with Bonjour and you are the most welcome if you want to try your French.. Come and have a French experience without the jet lag....
