Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Fantastic food, people, vibe. Was in Paris not long ago and this is as good as the best place we found (which was in saint Germain sur laye). Awesome.

This cafe is a little gem in Rotorua, which is a sprawling city with not much to write home about in the centre otherwise, once you're away from the lovely Government Gardens and interesting bubbling lake. We were so relieved to find it, as we...really didn't want to have the expensive buffet breakfast in the Sudima Lake hotel where we were staying. We ended up having breakfast here both mornings of our stay. We enjoyed the authentic French pastries as well as hot dishes and drinks, plus the general ambiance of what felt like a local neighbourhood cafe. There's parking right outside if you don't wish to walk.More

We came here based solely on Tripadvisor reviews. Nice clean restaurant with friendly service. We ordered the eggs Benedict and French toast. Both looked great and tasted delicious. Highly recommend.

This is a pleasant ,themed cafe with lots of good food choices and very reasonable prices . The staff particularly Mimmi are friendly and helpful . Well worth a visit for breakfast , lunch or just coffee and pastries . Lots of options We tried...the Galette, an omelette and a crepe plus a chocolate brownie and pan au raisin for later. All great .More

I had the crepes with mushrooms. What a disappointment. They tasted like canned mushrooms. The response I got on giving feedback was, no one else has complained. I have had positive experiences previously, so this was a real let down

Amazing food and wonderful service in an unassuming storefront. Casual vibe and very friendly service. Excellent croissants and pastries, and the galette (savory crepe) was spectacular.
