This place is great and has lots and lots of great food. It can get very crowded tho which is kind of a let down. The juice stand is great, coffee so so, and the croissants were very fresh.

We went there with empty stomach just to enjoy some "local" French food, is a small market, we spent around 1.5 hours to eat and walk around , a good place for morning walk.

We really enjoyed browsing the market And deciding what to have for breakfast was not easy. I settled for the leak tart and a rhubarb tartlet. Wish I had space for more. There were so many delightful looking meals so spoilt for choice

Great selection and choice across many cultures. Particularly liked the super hot Harissa. The Paella Negra was superb also. Lovely little French cafe tucked away inside just topped the whole experience off. Great way to spend a couple of hours when traveling in Auckland.
