Called in for Coffee which was good then decided to have lunch too and settled on the Beef Bourguignon pie which was absolutely scrumptious.
Nice little Cafe with French styling pity the owner never didn't smile, he seems quite dour which put us off going back in even though we would have gone back to sample the pastries.

Ha Having recently moved to Carterton from Auckland we are in the process of sampling some of the local eateries. Today we popped into Cafe Mirabelle for a bite of breakfast.

Oh. My. God.

I had a just-out-of-the-oven-still-so-so-fresh-and-warm croissant that was without a word of a lie the most beautiful croissant I've eaten in my whole life. Followed it with a very decadent meringue filled with coffee cream and slivered almonds. I died and went to heaven!

You must put this very ordinary-looking (from the road) little cafe on your bucket list. I can't wait for visitors to come stay with us so I can introduce them to this decadent and wonderful little place.

So much love in this wee gem.

We had lunch on our way from Wellington to HB. How could we never have known about this amazing place before this! Our new stop from now on. The food was absolutely delicious, and we shared a fabulous desert. Can’t wait fir our next trip.

Very suprising to find such a authentic French cafe on the main street of Carterton. If you are passing through this is a must stop

We were fortunate enough to attend the 'clearing the fridge' night at Mirabelle's before their Christmas break. Fantastic night! We were treated to many of the cafe's classics as platters to share - pate, terrine, smoked salmon, pear, walnut and blue cheese salad, braised duck, a variety of desserts AND a cheese platter...4 hours of gluttonous delight! We were a table of four - the restaurant was packed and a good time was had by all. Tres bien! Oh - and you can BYO which is a major benefit!
