“Good place for crepe, for breakfast or otherwise”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

Very charming ambiance, rapid service, and generous portions. And, they have very good lattes. A native French speaker from Bordeaux took our order, so there is more 'French' here than just its name.

“"Go to" cafe in Taupo”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

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.

“Charming and Delectable”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

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!

“a little bit of France in Taupo”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

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
