Thank you for your review. I am very proud of my staff and food so glad you enjoyed it. We look forward to seeing you again soon
We visited here after reading reviews, was bit disappointed as not much French food, I had almond croissant which was so yummy and a nice cup of tea, husband had bacon & eggs was really nice but bread wasn't french bread. Was hoping for filled...baguettes like we get in France. Staff were all great, food fresh, lovely atmosphere.More

Thank you for your comments. Our rolls are Sundried rolls which are baked from a French recipe. We also had Ham, Cheese and Tomato filled croissants . We have owned the cafe for 3 1/2 years now and it carried the name when we purchased....More
Visited here as the cafe we usually go to when we are here on holiday on the waterfront was closed and a local recommended French Fig to us. We are really pleased they did - there was so much delicious food in the cabinet it...was hard to choose! Although it was very busy we received our food and coffee (which was hot and strong) promptly. All staff we interacted with were efficient and friendly and we will definitely return next time we are back in Whitianga.More

Thank you for trying us. We do all love our little cafe :) We look forward to seeing you next time you are in town.
Great food BUT all counter food does not have a listed price. And names listed on counter food does not match repeated order from cashier. Order the penne but waitress gave me a panini.More

I am sorry there was a mistake with your order, I think it was miscommunication on both parts, the lady on the counter thought you said panini when of course you had said Penne ( that was our salad that day ) Very easy mistake...More
We loved the name and there seemed to be lots of people there so we thought that was a good sign... unfortunately we were quite disappointed... coffee was milky, iced chocolate was milky and had to ask for some more chocolate put in which did...make it a lot better. My husband got the big breakfast and I got the bacon and eggs which were very sub par... my husband loves his poached eggs runny but one was very over cooked... everything was just ok.
The one thing I will say is the customer service was nice, the bacon was nice and crispy, and their cabinet lemon cake/muffin was divine!
Unfortunately we wouldn’t go back :(More

I am sorry you didn't enjoy your experience. I am surprised as we are a very busy cafe, if you had asked for your eggs to be runny we would have made sure they were.
Again as I have said many times I wish people...More
