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!

I would like to know why you have not instructed your new staff member to tie her hair back instead of hanging all over the place. Goodness knows where in the food her hair is landing. Puts me off. ALL the other people working there always have hair tied back and even wear a head covering. Surely this is basic food handling practice? Previously my favourite cafe until now, but...

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....
