Great spot

Having been in Paris a couple of weeks earlier it was quite fun visiting this beautiful establishment. Very authentic food displayed well with a great range on the blackboard menu as well. We both had the onion tart and beautiful salad. Very tasty and authentic. The coffee was good and strong and... read more

Our experience was not to pleasant it was a incredibly busy morning and not many staff to help, was unsure if it was table service or if you had to go up to the counter no one advised us of how we should order the waitress cleaned the table and left. What we ordered was dry pretty much all big... More

Best best best cafe. Friendly staff, great food ALL the time, pastries are to die for. Whatever you choose, you can never go wrong. Quick eat, the plain ham and cheese roll and a cup of brewed Earl Grey, devine. If I am passing, I WILL stop, that's how wonderful this place is. Enjoy

It was 1 minute past 11 when breakfast finished and although they let 2 of us order breakfast the 3rd person in our group was told they couldn't have a breakfast meal. Seriously, how can you let half of the group order breakfast but not the other people. There were 3 of us. Very bad service and poor decision making... More

Well worth a lunch or coffee stop if driving between the Hutt and Wellington (although parking can be a problem), La Cloche offers a comprehensive package. Simple food with a french flavour - the great filled baguettes, croque monsieur, and pastries are amongst our favourites. Great coffee. A nice bright dining room. A real, and charming, French owner .

When Elizabeth and I are in Kaiwharawhara we always make a point of stopping in at La Cloche, it is one of our favourite cafes. It can always be relied on to serve great food at anytime of the day with that French twist

Went for lunch today and I was not disappointed. We had the crepes and then had citrus tart with a glass of wine for lunch and every bite was delicious. The staff are just so friendly and really add to this gorgeous place. Would highly recommend :)

Very busy at lunch time but the staff were efficient and it was worth a wait. The good coffee and food made up for any delays and the price was good also. Will definitely return if I can find a car park close by only let down.

Excellent croque madame and croque monsieur. Yummy coffee and delicious cakes. Good baguettes to take home a little piece of France in Kaiwharawhara. Worth a Saturday morning visit.
