“Great place with lovely atmosphere!”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

I was taken here by a local when visiting New Plymouth from the uk and have to say I wish there were places like this back home. The fact that the staff, music and decor were all French gave the place a real charm and relaxed ambiance with a real mix of people going in and out. I had a delicious croissant with jam and great cappuccino which were well worth the $6.20. After our first visit I went back for more buttery, flaky croissants over the week - All the homemade patisserie looked great too, very upset I didn't buy one! Merci beacoup pour l'experience Petit Paris!

“Lovely cafe, but doesn't deserve the fuss about being French”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

I love this place. The meals and ambiance are great. I recommend going!
But one thing bugs me... It seems to get a lot of attention for being perfectly French, and I don't find it so. I occasionally will get a croissant just because I love and miss them, but I'm always disappointing. All bakery goods in New Zealand seem to be a let-down. Compared to most other places in the country, Petit Paris is much better.
