We were happy to discover this lovely French cafe when passing through Warkworth. The coffee was perfect and the delicious raspberry tart reminded us of the ones we tasted while on holiday in France. We bought two savoury pies to take home for our dinner and they were delicious also. We will definitely go again and hope to try their... More

I still remember fondly the delicious food (I had the Beef Bourguignon) and probably one of the best coffees I ever had outside of Naples. For real, everytime me and my family talk about the best espressos (and being Italian we are a bit demanding when it comes to espresso) we ever had ;) ! Definitely would go back if... More

A different - French - cafe with a twist on the normal breakfast fair. Try the baked eggs with Parmesan and bacon.

For a quick lunch stop going North this was a hit. Very good and fast coffee, plenty of tempting counter food and the cheese and ham Parisian a great light lunch. The menu food looked very inviting and another stop will be needed to try the duck and other french fare. A good large and bright dinning room with small... More

Love the food here-both counter and menu. Also a good place to buy a gift for a foodie. The raspberry tart I had recently was so pretty, it is now the wallpaper on my phone.

Passing through Warkworth we stopped for lunch- passing so many bakeries with all the same greasy-looking pies available. On Neville street we found 'So French' which was a relief- amazing coffee and beautifully fresh and delicious french food. We had a wonderful meal and will return if we are in the area again.

Called in for a quick lunch. Had the delicious croque Monsieur which incidentally after travelling in France most years, the dish we had here was by far the best croque monsieur we have had. Good friendly authentic French service and lovely coffee.

Stopped off at So French during our tour of New Zealand. We had just dropped off some of our fellow travellers in Auckland and we're just getting used to being a smaller group. We stopped here for lunch and really enjoyed it. Quirky little cafe with night food and the tea was lovely.
