What can one say about their favorite local? That I bring everyone here on their first day to give them a sense of our local culture? That they beg to go again immediately? The French café, aka Châteaubriant, exudes an ambience of French countryside, serving...More

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.

I love going to Chateaubriant it's like travelling to Paris as you walk through the door great service and some amazing French delicacy's hey the coffee pretty good too. My favourite has to be a Pana Chocolate and a strong Long Black dunking of course.

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!
