Had a La Complete gannette and it was very good - simple, but done well. French toast was also good and nice coffee. Very enjoyable breakfast. Decor is a little dated and service a little withdrawn but good food and selection.

We stopped in for a pastry and an espresso. Both were excellent. The atmosphere is relaxed and the service has a nice family feel. The owners are very personable. The cafe is closed on Sunday and Monday. We were disappointed in that. We went back for breakfast on Tuesday. We had pastries, eggs and a crepe. All fabulous. A great... More

We ate here for breakfast and ordered a mix of items including some crepes which are made fresh in the front service area. Service and food was excellent, unfortunately neither my Wife or I enjoyed the coffee which meant we didn't go back. This could definitely just be our taste though and the food makes it definitely worth a try.

Description
Being greeted with a friendly "Bonjour!" As you enter the Cafe de Paris is one of its unique charms. The French owners, Alain (from Lyon) and Valerie (from Pau) settled in Rotorua 12 years ago.They provide a wide variety of French cuisine and an all day breakfast with a very competitive price of $9.90 . You can taste their unique almond croissant or beef bourguignon. They offer savoury galettes (delicious crispy, buckwheat crepes, gluten free and organic) or dessert crepes both with a great range of authentic French fillings. It is the original French cafe in Rotorua where you can have the taste of authentic French food surrounded by some "ouh, la! La!" Or "Voila"...Alain and Valerie welcome you with Bonjour and you are the most welcome if you want to try your French.. Come and have a French experience without the jet lag....
