This was only a couple of doors down from our apartment (Quest) and the food was great. The coffee was fantastic and the prices excellent.

A little taste and touch of France in Rotorua. Valerie and her chef husband run a quaint cafe with the best full breakfast in town (only 9.90 NZD). We ate breakfast and lunch there on different days. Delicious. Make sure to get your lattes here...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....
