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!

My daughter and I visited for lunch and were greeted immediately in entering the restaurant. It was Friday lunchtime and it was humming. The food selection was amazing and the desserts were works of art. We settled for a baguette and a soup. Both were hearty and generous. The coffee was excellent. The desserts - a triple chocolate moose and... More

Had a Saturday brunch, excellent food and coffee at great prices. I had the steak which was cooked to perfection. They have a great range of patisserie's at very good prices ($6 - $7.50). Only minus was there is not much off street parking given it's location.

A great place for french cuisine. Friendly helpful and efficient staff make this very popular restaurant a great place to visit. We went there for lunch and had their fantastic French Onion soup. Their tantalising cabinet food urges us to return to try it.

The occasional evening meals at La Cloche showcasing the cuisine of different regions of France show another side of this cafe popular for its breakfasts and lunches and morning and afternoon tea treats.

The food was nice - a bit pricey but this was offset with an Entertainment Card voucher. The service was very average - we sat at an uncleared table and had to start to clear it ourselves before the waitress came anywhere near us!

Had morning tea only. The coffee was very good and croissants fresh and tasty. Play area for little ones away from main area. The cabinet was full of delicious looking food. Bon appetit.

Popped in here on our way into the city. The coffee is fab and you have to have one of their croissants. We took the teenagers and children and there was so much on the menu it was hard to make a choice! Everyone left happy and with full tummies that kept everyone fuelled up for the day. Well done...

Went for brunch and ordered the crepes which I've had before and are pretty tasty. Ordered egg and cheese and got delivered egg and ham. This is the second time this has happened here, at least this time it only took one go to fix it. Last visit they didn't even get it right the second time round. At least... More
