Had second thoughts as to whether to review 'Au Bon Coin' for purely selfish reasons - wouldn't want it to get too busy :) Beautifully understated just like the area. Wonderful pastries (quiche, tarts and deserts all recommended), great coffee and hot chocolate, and they make an amazing cooked breakfast. A little taste of France in this charming corner of...

This wee place makes great coffee and pastries as well as the most delicious creamy scrambled eggs I've tasted (after my Mum's). In the humble diverse Beach Haven village it's worth stopping in.

A best kept secret (but then so is Beachhaven). Chris is a talented French pastry chef who runs his restaurant with dedication and passion. His food is fantastic and well above what you would expect from a small neighbourhood cafe. Unfortunately, the surroundings don't do him justice.

We went there for a coffee and dessert, try somewhere different thanks to the Entertainment Book. On a busy corner with hard to find signage, this should have been a sign. We were not greeted, being the only ones in there was a bad start. Coffee wasn't good at all and the 2 desserts we got made us feel sick.... More

This is a great hidden gem on the north shore, who would think Beachhaven would had a French pastry chef. First came here 13 years ago when we lived around the corner, and when ever we come back we have to come to this cafe.

Good coffee, excellent croissants. I love the personal touch: the owners know everybody and remember how their customers like their coffee.
