Popped across to Whitianga via Ferry from Cook's Beach ($6 return) so we could have a wander around. Nice marina area and quite a few shops. Needing some sort of refreshment, we opted for the French Fig as it was quite busy and looked nice. We weren't disappointed - tea in proper teapots and the warm savoury scone was delicious. Small area near the counter has some lovely gifts for purchase too. Nice decor.
Only thing that stops me giving it five stars was the birds! Being ornithophobic, I found it quite offputting that birds fly in through the open window/door scouting the floor for crumbs. Fortunately no one else seemed to mind and I came across this in a lot of cafes during our time in NZ - I guess our British birds are more timid!
Nonetheless, would recommend.
