Discovered this amazing French Cafe and Crepes / Bistro when on holiday recently on Waiheke. Walked in to hear staff all talking to each other in French. The cabinet was beautifully presented but we choose crepes, which were delicious. The coffee was excellent as well....More

Some of the best crepes I have ever had! The staff was friendly and very quick to bring our orders. (Also have great pastries). Their La Poulet is probably one of the most amazing crepes ever. We went back multiple times go have it again...More
