We came here for lunch on Monday, hoping to be impressed but left disappointed. I ordered the fritters and he had the cooked breakfast. We sat outside as it was a nice day but to be honest, it was dirty. I understand that an outdoor area is prone to low flying birds and foot traffic but I think staff should... More

Third breakfast at Savoire Merivale. Consistently good. From front counter staff to kitchen staff. Another great dining experience.

Coffee good, service a bit slow when asked for fast service at 12.10, as had plane to catch. Serviette wet patches. Chicken and Brie sandwich tasted good. Not crowded.

We had lunch here and because it was such a gorgeous day decided to sit outside. It was lovely to discover that this cafe is taking place in the Fresh Air smokefree outdoor dining project. The coffee was great and the food tasty. We had a toastie and a muffin.

My 'go to' place when meeting friends for a coffee in Merivale. Quick service, yummy coffee, delicious cabinet food. Daily papers - great if you are waiting for friends or want a quick catch up of news.Located in the Mall so easy parking.

Decent sized space. We ordered nachos, pancakes and rice balls. Portions are very large. Food is stodgy and filling which is good on a cold day but portions were overwhelming. Avoid the rice dish. Really not tasty. Would commend coffee. Very good.

Food is quite stodgy and therefore not the healthiest of options. Doesn't provide much variation and a lot of their items are based on egg. Not great

We had a great breakfast here last Sunday, very quick service and food and friendly staff. Made it very easy even with there being 10 of us. Coffee was good and everyone was happy. Cheers!

We popped in on a Sunday morning and had two breakfasts. Service was great and so was the food. The coffee and tea were also very good. I thought the food was well priced.
