“Excellent fresh breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Walking through Potts Point we stumbled across this 'Villa-Blanca'-esque restaurant/ home decor store.

The service was friendly and efficient. The food (Bircher Muesli and the fresh fruit salad with yoghurt) was fresh, high quality and thoughtfully prepared and presented. If we had to find fault it would be with the coffee - not good or bad, just something you'd expect from any run-of-the-mill cafe.

Sunday morning at 9.30am will see you get a table easily, but over the course of our meal it quickly filled up.

“Birthday lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

I was lucky enough to be taken to La Croix recently for a belated birthday lunch.

My friends had asked where I wanted to go - I had not been and had heard about La Croix from others ... so suggested that as our lunch venure.

No disappointments here.

The lunch was delicious - I had a wonderful Salad Nicoise and my companions enjoyed other salads from the menu - all looked wonderful.

The staff were attentive - courteous and helpful when discussing the menu choices.

One thing we all loved was the concept store. The french antiques are glorious as are the candles, mirrors and other decorative pieces.

Cant wait to go back and would recommend this to anyone.

“All class”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013 via mobile

Been to The Cross a few times. Nice short menu which is well priced. I had the La Croix breakfast which was good except the tomato was tasteless, but hey, it ain't Italy. Possibly the best ambiance of any cafe in Sydney. Terrific!

“Superb service, sensational interiors and great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

What else could you ask for? Perfect light wines to sip on with lunch items that are poppingly fresh and stunning to look at on the plate. I love the salad given to diners pre the arrival of the orders. Gaze at the colourful market outside the door and browse the imaginative and unusal collection of items for sale inside. An excellent experience and one to bring Sydney visitors to for a light lunch.

“Pastries and Antiques”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

My husband and I have been to La Croix a couple of times, it's in the Paris area of Potts Point.
Once for lunch and then again for afternoon tea, I love the fusion of this stylish cafe, restaurant. Browse amongst the French antiques gorgeous candles, mirrors and girandoles either have coffee and pastries , or well presented lunch. Found the staff In restaurant very friendly with no attitude, had a problem which they treated with great respect and understanding and we felt able to return without any embarrassment, The problem was out of our control, rare to find such pleasant staff. The apple dessert which we shared was divine. Good food and super ambience, would recommend just for the experience of the many glittering chandeliers. champagne and a dessert just perfect.
