We stopped here on our way east towards Nelson. Thought the slices of cake looked too appetising. Had a great coffee and a great piece of apple cake.Exquisite

Had come into Motueka to try out a recommended cafe but it was closed on Sunday's, had driven all the way from Nelson to try so went to Patisserie Royale instead and was not disappointed. Delicious, quality food. Also happened to get their food as part of Wilson's Abel Tasman tour package and it was brilliant then as well.

Popped in for a light lunch and very much enjoyed their pies and coffee. Prices were good and service was friendly and efficient too. We sat outside which was pleasant.

Mouth watering taste sensations. It was the best pies we have ever tasted. We also had the mud cake and cheesecake too. MMMMMmmm delicious. Would it be rude... More

We have been visiting this cafe/bakery for several years now and it never disappoints. The food is a mix of NZ (filled rolls, ficelle, and excellent interesting pies) plus wonderful cake and pastry products. The coffee eclair and the beestings are wonderful.

We stopped in here to grab breakfast on the way to a day out in the Abel Tasman National Park. Food was reasonably priced and delicious. Bacon and egg croissants a winner with the whole family!

Stocking up on supplies when we came across this great little Cafe and bakery. We tried some of their sour dough breads and pastries. Would highly recommend they were all delicious.

Quick, efficient coffee stop in the High Street. We only stopped for coffee, sat outside. Tables on the sidewalk coffee bought out to us. Friendly staff, very busy at lunchtime. Was surprised to pay the same for an Americano as a Mocha, usually the Americano is a little cheaper? That aside a good place to people watch and enjoy a... More

I stopped here for lunch. I chose a Roast Beef french stick, it was so nice and also so big I had to take some with me to eat later. There was a large selection of food, tea and coffee and all well priced. I am pleased I stopped there, and will again.

Thank grh55
