We had breakfast and afternoon snacks here each day. Delightful, and the owner is a real Parisian. The chocolate croissants were fabulous, and was the cappuccino.

The smell of fresh baking and coffee is heavenly as you walk in. We had crepe with lemon and sugar and croissants. They were perfect as were the accompanying cappuccinos.

We had a Onion Soup and a croque Monsieur and both were absolutely delicious! It took me right back to my time spent in France. Simple yet full of flavour. The staff were also very friendly, great customer service!

I was told about this café so I purposely went over there for a coffee. It was hard to miss it and it looked very inviting from outside – the French theme was clear. Despite a map of France, some postcards from various locations in...More

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....
