Our favourite place to meet friends and have a chat and a cup of coffee. The quality is very good, so is the customer service. The prices are reasonable. And it's never loud or over-crowded. Very nice quiet place! We like it!

Cute little cafe that we stumbled across one evening. Originally we were just going to have a quick coffee but due to the warmth inside (and the rain outside) along with the pleasant staff we decided to stay for a meal. We had some breads, meats and pickles (?) to start. It was ok. My mother had a stew and I had steak and chips. Again, ok. For dessert - chocolate fondant and a trio of creme brûlée. Both yum. I will definitely go back during the day for brunch as I suspect they are better equipped for daytime service.

Hubby & I went here on a week day for breakfast after hearing a bit about it. The food in & on the cabinets looked lovely. We ordered from the menu. French toast (pain perdu) & Eggs Benedict.
Pain perdu was nice, lovely caramalised banana and the brioche was good but the whole thing was swimming in maple syrup and a lot of icing sugar. More like a desert then a breakfast.
The eggs benny was bland, spread out on the plate with the spinach to one side, more like a deconstructed benny? Hollandaise was nothing special unfortunately. There was an issue as the spinach had some steelo in it. Upon showing the waitresss she told the manager who apologised and offered a free coffee. No, he did not take the eggs benny off the bill at the end, he took a coffee off instead. Kinda sucks considering the coffee was fine and the eggs benny was not? On another note, the waitress we had was really, really good, helpful, friendly and lovely.

L’Assiette is a small French café and bistro, producing quality French classic dishes made with quality ingredients. The chefs bake fresh pastries throughout the day and have plenty of French treats on offer including macarons, tarts, eclairs, and mille feuilles. The all-day breakfast menu puts a French spin on kiwi classics, while the lunch menu moves into more classic French fare.
On Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings L’Assiette is transformed into an intimate bistro offering a selection of sharing plates, and some classic rustic main courses.
Try the Chicken Liver Pate cooked with port wine, garlic & thyme s/w blue cheese salad & fresh baguette The chocolate pastries are to die for!
