The service here was excellent. Decked out in tricolor bunting and images of France everywhere in this somewhat hidden gem of a cafe I had no question about where the owners of this cafe hail from. The welcome we received was warm, the coffee and our cooked breakfasts were hot and speedily served. Deciding on what to order was no... More

Had a really great experience at this cute little french cafe. Staff are really friendly and the food is quality. Everything is fresh, prepared well and adds the perfect bit of french quality to Rotorua. Must try the BELT sandwich, mouthwatering!

This was a cute little find on our adventure! The macaroons are huge and very tasty and the coffee was really good. The staff are very sweet and attentive and even showed my little girls some books. Worth a visit!

Good little cafe with good coffee. The $10 breakfast grabed my attention and with an added sausage for $3 was good. Service was friendly with a french speaking man who took our order. The only fault for me was the bacon but for a budget breakfast I cant expect the best streaky bacon. I love the fact I could buy... More

Description
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....
