This French cafe/patisserie is a great little spot for lunch with a selection of sandwiches/baguettes, pastries or cooked menu items to choose from. We tried a couple of the baguettes and some Madeleines and they were delicious. The coffee was pretty good too!

There are outdoor tables, if you don't want to share two long tables indoors, and this place gets packed, so go early. Very popular, food's excellent here, as well as breads, juices and other stuff. They don't do iced coffee, so don't ask.

We stumbled across this Cafe whilst looking for somewhere to have lunch. The sandwiches were delicious. Made from freshly baked baguette with fresh salad and great ingredients. A little piece of France in Auckland. We will be back.

Any day but Monday you may find me here; slurping a flat white and perusing the NZHerald while gabbing to neighbours. The staff are actually French and so are the wonderful pastries and filled baguettes. Remember to say Merci!
