Brigittes is a great little place tucked away off Papanui Rd but always bustling! Food, coffee and service are consistently good and so lovely to sit outside in the courtyard on a nice day!

Went for breakfast. Had the eggs Benedict and a chocolate milk shake. Eggs Benedict was exceptional and the service was brilliant.

We ate here twice during our trip to NZ. The breakfasts were amazing and the service was great. It was always very busy, but that did not impact on the service nor the quality of food at all! Would definitely return again if I could!

A quick afternoon meeting with some friends, place was a bit untidy I thought and could have done with a tidy up after the lunch time rush. My fruit tea was weak and had no flavour at all even though I brewed it for ages...More

I really love going here for brunch and lunch. The eggs Benedict is one of the best (with Salmon) and the Salt and Pepper Squid with cashews is always good. Can be a little noisy but great to be outdoors in the summer.
