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.

Ordered a cake for my younger sister birthday. Staff were extremely helpful during the process. Cake was delicious and absolutely gorgeous. Also offered gluten free options which was great.

Petit Fours is a lovely little Palmerston North cafe which exudes old world charm. It has lovely old white linen embroidered table cloths, the sort your grandmother would have hand made, and also old china. The tea rooms are tastefully decorated to fit this style....The women who run it are cheerful and friendly. But the real treasure are the beautifully decorated and tasty cakes - cup cakes or larger cakes. Also there is a wide range of teas such as herbal or black teas. Cakes are made to order as well and are fabulously decorated. I enjoyed the chamomile and fruit tea and a lovely lemon cup cake. well worth a visit.More

Harry Potter themed high tea, featuring quiz! A friend and I attended and were seated with another pair of friends, at tables grouped together in houses. The presentation was really fun, with each food in the high tea having an HP-themed name, and we came...second on the quiz. Highly recommended.More

What an awesome wee Palmy store. The ladies here went out of their way to deliver at a time that best suited for us and their communication over emails was great. The cupcakes were also super stunning and delicious! I’ll certainly be back!

To celebrate a family member's birthday, four ladies enjoyed an afternoon tea at Petit Fours. Although we were too late to order a high tea, we enjoyed a delicious afternoon tea, served on delicate china with all the trimmings for a special outing. We selected...cabinet food which was beautifully displayed and presented, and our tea and coffee replenished regularly. The service was excellent making for a most enjoyable outing.More

A great selection of beautifully cooked cupcakes, all made with fresh and natural ingredients. Great range of teas. The gluten free cupcakes are as soft and tantalising as their non gluten partners. The skill evident in the icing is superb. I would use it more...for a take away to serve as a treat at home rather than a lunch place. I would love to see them develop some more savoury/plain options to complement the sweet options so that it could be a valid lunch option but perhaps they have these and had sold out of these when I called.More

I'm a cake fan. I love cake. I always look for cake wherever I go. This is a cake I return to over and over again. The first cake they made me was my wedding cake. The next cake will be my husband's birthday cake!

Fabulous! Very low key, friendly place to sit back, relax and enjoy a great selection of dessert treats with a hot chocolate to boot. And at $20 for 2 with a GrabOne voucher, even better. I want more.

What a gorgeous little shop. Amazing cupcake selection plus lots more to choose from. I had a fabulous cheese scone. Great drink selection too. They do afternoon tea parties, teach decorating cupcakes in the school holidays and there special occasion cakes made to order are...stunning. Treat yourself or take the kids for a special treat.More
