One of my all time favourite cafes in Auckland is the truly delicious Petit Bocal. Quietly nestled amongst a small set of shops on Sandringham Road just down from Mt Eden is one of Auckland’s ‘best kept secrets’ and is a perfect fusion of relaxed New Zealand cafe culture with French cafe cuisine, gorgeous decor to match, and of course and all French waitstaff. I’ve been visiting Petite Bocal for a while now and absolutely adore it - the food is incredible the coffee is amazing (and will make you squeal with delight with the gorgeous drawings on top) the staff are so lovely and it’s the perfect place to enjoy a delicious selection of French classics with friends over lunch or dinner. If you haven’t been, you simply must visit, their lunch and dinner menu is so perfect and changes seasonally, but be sure to try their famous croque monsieur, fromage de chèvre and of course their lemon and sugar sweet french crêpes (my favourite) - each are so delicious! I’ve no doubt you will quickly adore Petit Bocal as much as I do, it’s French cafe perfection right in the heart of Auckland. x
