Delicious pastries

Yet to have time to have a meal in this quaint little restaurant BUT I frequently purchase their pastries and muffins. DELICIOUS. Lovely staff and parking easy either on Sandringham Road or a nearby side street. Bon appetit.

Visited this place for a light lunch and ended lingering for 1.5 hours. Situated on a nondescript part of Sandringham Road, this little cafe has an air of sophistication and an unobtrusive service without airs and graces. I had the champagne ham baguette and my friend had the portobello mushrooms on toasted bread. Both were fresh, tasty and served up... More

Called here for a light lunch. Been passed many times before and it has always looked busy and interesting. No trouble though getting a table in the window alcove. Very interesting menu and we went for the sardines a l'huile au citron with a soft boiled egg and baguette soldiers. What a surprise when the sardines arrived still in the... More

What a wonderful surprise. Service was chilled out but knowledgeable. Food recommendations great. A beautiful tuna nicoise. So much more than a salad. Tuna was melt in the mouth. Chocolate fondant was a 10/10. Lovely casual local dining. Will be back 😄👍

Petit NorCal is a lovely little cafe on sandringham road not from Eden park. I was meeting with old fiends for dinner . The welcome was warm and very genuine and friendly. We shared a board of beautiful french cheeses ,bread,walnuts and meats and greens which was quite generous . Mains are various in offering and for me the hosts... More

Always great food, shame it's so super small, it's a gamble whether or not you can get a table! Great menu, onto it staff, coffee good.

I discovered this place when I was looking for a coffee during the day. The atmosphere struck me as friendly and simple. There were yummy croissants on the counter. So, when I saw that they did dinner as well, I came back a couple of days later. Turned up, unbooked at around 6.30pm. Still quiet, but filled up while I... More

Came here in response to word-of-mouth suggesting that their croque monsieur was wonderful. And it is - my word it is. Best I have had outside of France. And make sure you order the fries to accompany your sandwich. They are spectacular. Just a stone's throw from Eden Park this petit cafe is definitely worth a visit - or two.

Just had brunch here, and it was wonderful, we were with friends and we all had a second coffee as it was really good, we also wanted to see what design we would get on the second cup. We had a wee wait for food but sitting with friends on a Sunday it was not an issue and the wait... More
