Almond Croissant's to die for, so much so that we had to go for seconds and lovely coffee ☕ and a lovely man who served us.

Delicious pastries are available here - as good as any I've eaten in France! Loved the cinnamon swirls. However the coffee was a disappointment - I expected an espresso but received a very long americano!

Only found SDFB by chance, but I'm pleased we did, in a quaint little old-fashioned building off the main street of an NZ village most people just pass through. The pastries are splendid, so much so that we purchased more to take with us to...More

Real french pastries that were delicious. It is a takeaway because of trading licence. There are a couple of seats on footpath and seats at window. There are no toilets but public ones available 50 metres away. The coffee may be served in paper cup...More
