We popped in for breakfast and sat In the lovely courtyard. Our waitress was delightful. Very smiley and friendly. Coffee was good though perhaps could have been a little hotter. The food was great.

I always come here with my friends and it never disappoints! The coffee is always amazing and the food is stunning. I always go for the same thing the breakfast bruschetta but it's always just so yummy I have to get it again and again!

My wife and I go to Brigittes two or three times a year. We have never been disappointed by the service or the food. We went for breakfast earlier this month and once again had a fantastic meal, great coffee, great atmosphere and excellent service. Keep it up Brigittes, we'll be back.

I have eaten at Brigittes occasionally for some years now. The food is always excellent and the staff friendly and efficient. They are usually busy and you would expect that of an establishment with its reputation. I had the duck parfait and a glass of Otago Pinot Noir. My dining partner had the Lamb Salad. Both were well presented and... More

Went to Brigittes for Mother's Day lunch. Always a busy time for a good restaurant and today was no exception. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food beautifully prepared and presented. We enjoy Brigittes and have never been disappointed over many years of eating here. It is hard to find but just go to Merivale Mall and... More

We went to Brigittes for a late breakfast on the weekend. I had the corn fritters and my partner had the big breakfast. The meals are huge and the service was good. Overall we enjoyed our meals but the only disappointing thing was the lack of healthy options. They really need to include some fruit and muesli type things on... More
