Best patisserie in South Island. It reminded me small Bakeries and Cafes is Paris. Beautiful food and excellent service. This is a must visit place on your way to Nelson. Tiramisu is to die for. Apple turnover is melting in your mouth.

Have had good experiences in the past and this was recommended. On the whole very good, coffee and cheese roll were great as were the friendly staff. The croissant was sought and bland on the inside and stopped them getting a perfect score. Only bad...More

Good service too! This became our go to place for our annual Christmas week in Motueka. If we ended up having to go elsewhere because it was too busy or closed we were always disappointed. This cafe sets the bar!

Too often cafes that specialise in the finest of foods tend to let themselves down when it comes to the coffee, but not so here. The best long black outside of my regular haunts in Christchurch. The pastries weren't bad either!
