“Average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

The food selection was rather average and by the time we arrived fro lunch at 1,30 much had been sold with no restocked hot food.
The lady behind the counter was rather abrupt
we ate outside as it was a lovely day (and inside is cramped) however as it is right on the roadside it was a little noisy

“Great coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

We recently stayed 2 nights an Akaroa and asked a few people where to get the best coffee. This deli did not disappoint!! The coffee was rich and smooth and came with a complimentary biccy...nice touch. The food looked rather nice and well priced. There is also a nice view from the cafe.

We needed just a light meal. Excellent food . Value for money. Great coffee and the baguette with jam was just right. Excellent coffee.

“Food with a French flavour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

We had breakfast here a few times during our stay because the food was good and there was a great buzz to the place - lots of locals sitting in or grabbing take-away. Also tried some of the cakes and pastries. The white chocolate and raspberry muffin was delicious and the brownie was amazing! Lovely coffee!
