I haven't tasted a hot ham and cheese croissant like this since visiting a French cafe in takapuna auckland some 25 years ago. A lovely little cafe on the main road. Good food and friendly vibe.

Best patisserie in South Island. It reminded me small Bakeries and Cafes is Paris. Beautiful food and excellent service. This is a must visit place on your way to Nelson. Tiramisu is to die for. Apple turnover is melting in your mouth.
