A hidden wee gem with a delicious All Day Breakfast. Great coffee! And a good selection of dairy free milks. If I wasn’t craving eggs with hollandaise this pregnancy, I would have loved to have tried the awesome range of crepes available! Very friendly service...and food was served up quickly! Thank you very much! We’ll be back next time we are in Rotorua.More

Food was microwaved, toast was thin slice from a bag, service was very average. So disappointed. Best part was the avocado.More

The staff were super friendly and seemed happy in their work. The food was out quickly, generous portions and very delicious. My coffee was excellent, best coffee I'd had on our whole trip. The crepes are an absolute must! We had planned on returning for...lunch, but unfortunately ran out of time before having to return home. We will definitely be back!!More

This cafe seems very popular. Sited in the central city area of Rotorua, it has a reasonable choice of foods available. Good food, and reasonable pricing. Tho the set out inside can feel a little cramped at times. It is interesting to see French themed...info on the walls.More

A great cafe in the middle of Rotorua town centre. Beautiful smells of crepes wort past as soon as you open the door followed by a happy welcome and happy to help staff - in French if course given the truly French owners. Tasty crepes...were popular in the whole cafe and 3 of our group - not a scrap left on the plates - chocolate and cream, kiwi favourite (cheese tomato and pineapple) and salon with cream cheese). For those of you who have been to Bonjour in Arrowtown (now closed unfortunately) and enjoyed it, you will enjoy this cafe. Good news for coeliac/ Gluten free (GF) - buckwheat crepes are very good and there is a reasonable selection (including the BLET / sandwiches which use the Allergywise brand bread (we think is pretty amongst the best GF bread). Coffee was great as was the quiche. BLET (BLAT but with an egg) was generous and very well received. Thankfully we are staying at the Quest apartments 50m down the road and will be frequenting this cafe many times during our stay in Rotorua.More

In a town bereft of visitors with many businesses closed it was joy to find a genuine “French” cafe. Very good with a real French owner and food. Good value and ambience
