This is our "local" cafe so been here a few times now. Every time it's hard to make a choice as everything looks awesome. The sweet treats especially are magnificent. Try the real custard square! And the coffee is always great too. It's not the cheapest place but I for one really enjoy the atmosphere. And you can't really knock... More

La Cloche do superbly authentic French dishes, sweet and savory. The coffee is great and I've always found the staff helpful and friendly. The menu includes a list of all time favourites, and the daily specials are also worth a look. Remember to leave room for a sweet from the cabinet however, or alternatively take a couple of pieces home!... More

We love this place. It's warm and friendly, and the food is great. On our last visit we had salmon quiche, pain au chocolat, tiramisu and capuccino. The coffee was good and hot!

My favorite thing... they serve breakfast until 11, but on their lunch menu is quiche, omelettes, and crepes! Delicious. They have amazing French bakery, as one would hope. Side of fries or hot veggies - both tasty! The hot chocolate comes with two delicious marshmallows and they serve wine! You can't go wrong with this place!

Went for lunch and throughly enjoyed sharing two dishes with my mother. The special was confit duck with lentils, beetroot & asparagus and it was deliciously flavoursome. The other was the scallop, prawn and mussel stew which was sublime in its creamy sauce with salad on the side. Was too full for dessert so took some cakes home. Well heaven... More

This is a great French cafe. It is casual dining and licensed. If you love French toast then you need to be there before 11am. Breakfast is served until 11am. The French Toast was truly delicious and different to what is served at other places. The serving had two large slices of eggy, brioche bread with berry coulis and a... More

This is a French delicatessen on steroids! There is so much to choose from, extra visits are required. The food is beautifully presented and seriously delicious. The coffee is pretty good. It does get busy at peak times but the wait is minimal. It's definitely worth ordering off their specials board!
