From the welcoming entrance and the French accents to the great coffee to the fabulous food this is an absolute must if you are in the Taupo area. The menu changes regularly with occasions or seasons and is always delicious.

Tucked a little off the beaten track, in Taupo, we found this delightful cafe. The food presentation was excellent, the service superb and the tastiness of the food lived up to expectations. There are tables both inside and out; an extra bonus for families is the outdoor play area. Our only disappointment was that we had not discovered this cafe before!

France is a great country and the food here is reminiscent of that. When I want a reminiscence tasting I visit the boulangerie. Unfortunately it is not quite able to duplicate the original cultural reality apart from the lovely French-speaking staff

I have been before when this little cafe was crowded last summer but I decided to treat a friend this week and I was disappointed. The waitress was unfriendly. There was nobody there except us but one table had not been cleared. The hot chocolate was watery. We tried to catch the waitress eye as we left and shouted au revoir but there was just nothing... Things have changed from last summer when we practised our French and met a lovely genuine French waitress. Maybe that was the difference.
