A group of friends and I had lunch here a day or two after The French Fig opened in December 2013. We all enjoyed our choices, which were Eggs Benedict with portobello Mushrooms, herbed potato rosti & spinach with hollandaise sauce; Fig and walnut bread with banana, ricotta and honey; and French omelettes with a choice of accompaniements. It's a small café and with our very hot summer I'm pleased we chose to eat al fresco because inside the cafe was just too hot for comfort. A couple of standing fans would have cooled things considerably. I hope management have fixed this, either with fans or by installing air conditioning.
Our group will eat here again because the food is delicious and the staff are friendly. It was our 'silly season' and a tough time to open a new café, but they did very well.

We just passed by this very neat looking French style cafe, which also sells interior decor items. Although we only had a (perfect) cappuccino, the displayed bits looked very delicious. Cafe was also well-visited during a rather off-hour...

Beautiful food, perfect coffee and friendly service, we enjoyed two breakfasts and coffees at The French Fig. New to Whitianga (on a couple of days' visit from Auckland), we found this cafe by chance and are so glad we did. We intend to return and The French Fig will be our number one eating destination - no doubt about that.

We were a group of 4 for breakfast and we were all satisfied by the quality and taste of food served here. Good variety and big portions. We particularly found the fig bread very unique and delicious. The iced coffee was advertised as the best, however I will have to disagree with only this one. The food was far better than the iced coffee. Overall we loved this place. Good service, friendly, and good breakfast.
