Traveled five weeks through New Zealand and spent quite some time for discovering best food/sweets. My benchmark at most places (south&north island) was the Almond croissant. At Philippes it was, hands down, the BEST by far. Unbelievable! I can not recommend it enough- go there!...More

Come and stroll into this warm and inviting cafe where they brew a nice cuppa and make their own breads, cakes, choc and pastry. Love coming back! Small cosy warm cafe normally busy so takeaway or sit down if you find a spot.

I'm French so I can be really picky when it comes to so-called French food outside France. I have to say that I was really surprised and agreed with my friends, when they recommanded me to visit that place in Grey Lynn. Really croissant, pain...More
