Description: Being greeted with a friendly "Bonjour!" As you enter the Cafe de Paris is one of its unique charms. The French owners, Alain (from Lyon) and Valerie (from Pau) settled in Rotorua 12 years ago.They provide a wide variety of French cuisine and an all day breakfast with a very competitive price of $9.90 . You can taste their unique almond croissant or beef bourguignon. They offer savoury galettes (delicious crispy, buckwheat crepes, gluten free and organic) or dessert crepes both with a great range of authentic French fillings. It is the original French cafe in Rotorua where you can have the taste of authentic French food surrounded by some "ouh, la! La!" Or "Voila"...Alain and Valerie welcome you with Bonjour and you are the most welcome if you want to try your French.. Come and have a French experience without the jet lag....

What a charming friendly place. We arrived just before closing and the owner made us so welcome. I had a perfect long black coffee (and I am the pickiest coffee drinker in the world) and the pastries are home made, authentic and absolutely delicious. My son's hot chocolate was beautifully decorated, and the owner treated him so kindly. Heading back for crepes tomorrow...

Great coffee, French staff. Lovely little fruit tartlets and free wi-fi.

Also cheaper than most other places.
