So I was driving through and saw this little French place, in the cabinet they had some nice pastries. Sadly it was a big let down, very dry, and not buttery at all, have had better supermarket one's. Coffee was terrible too but the vegan mommy balls were nice.

We stopped in for some bread after visiting Ohope for the weekend, but wished we had discovered it earlier. They had beautiful bread, perfect pies and crazy-good coffee. It's easy to miss this place because it is set back from the road a little. Make it a must-visit place when in Whakatane or Ohope.

So happy to have found this gem of a place in Ohope! Haven't tried the pizza yet but the pastries and bread are delicious. I had an almond croissant which was the best I have ever eaten. I will definitely be back to try the pies which also look amazing. Also a stockist of Soul Organic juice which is handy.

Well impressed with the back to basics pizza from this place. I eat a whole large one to myself. It was an authentic tomato base pizza, with a thin base. I added anchovies and mushrooms. I eat the entire thing. Was brilliant. My wife ordered a more modest medium sized Country pizza. She was a little disappointed in the cream... More

Good service but then you would certainly hope so at the price you pay. Really different pizzas which are well and I mean well done but not char grilled!
