“A coffee with a smile”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2014

This is the best little stop for sustenance in Akaroa. The cabinet food is great, the coffee is excellent and the staff are delightful. Service is always accompanied with a smile. Not a lot of seating but hey that is minor.

“Le Parisien breakfast a disappointment”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2014 via mobile

Looking forward to a taste of France in Akaroa we headed here on recommendations.

After a pleasant welcome from the staff and inviting cabinet food, we decided to order the Le Parisien breakfast off the blackboard menu. It promised baguette, pain au chocolat, croissant with jam, fresh fruit salad and yoghurt, orange juice, and coffee.

Nicely presented but the baguette was not a traditional crunchy, airy piece of Paris but a lame excuse made of white bread and shaped baguette-style. The L'Affare coffee, usually a brand of some note, was so poorly made it was undrinkable. Shame.

“Could do better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2014

Food and coffee were good, but the waitress was a bit miserable and could have been friendlier. Enough said.
