Popped in for a late breakfast but was completely distracted by the wide variety of sweets available in the cabinet, I eventually settled on the coffee and walnut slice which was delicious. Service was warm and friendly and despite it being a busy morning I didn't feel at all rushed and the tables were cleared and cleaned promptly. Seating is... More

Dined here twice as we only wanted a light lunch selection. The offerings were varied and ample and the coffee was great. The view from our table across the road to the harbour was excellent.

It was a hot afternoon and we were looking for something other than a coffee. The mlkshakes were creamy and cool and most appreciated.

Small place with not many seats, good coffee had a slice of chocolate cake which was gluten free, mega rich but delicious.

The selection of food was poor. At 1pm they had run out of food in the hot cabinet, The woman who served us was unfriendly and disinterested, go elsewhere.

As everyone has reported the service here stinks! They seemed inconvenienced by the customers and were trying to hurry me up while I was looking at the pastry selection. The flat whites were okay; I liked the size (compared to the small cups everywhere else). The pastry I got was good, not great, but the service is inexcusable and I... More

Thought to enjoy a coffee here in the morning while waiting to check-in for the Akaroa Dolphins tour (which is marvellous by the way!) but were met, as many others have mentioned, by a stone-faced lady who begrudgingly took our order. We offered compliments as we glanced over the selection of home-made pastries and light-heartedly suggested we'd have to return... More

we had lunch from here both days we were in Akaroa. Once on sit where we sat outside which was lovely with great view. The second day we took away and ate on our balcony with a glass of wine. The food was good, service fine and efficient, and prices reasonable.

L'Escargo Rouge is a small cafe with seating squeezed inside. I did expect a few more French style choices in their cabinets considering the cafe name and the reputation of Acaroa. The coffee wasn't great and the slices we chose were pretty ordinary. I wouldn't bother going there again.

Very good cabinet food selections. The staff are friendly and helpful. The scones are of a generous size and very good. The hot chocolate was great. No pies left but the sausage rolls were ok. On this visit we chose to take away our food and drinks. Service was quick. The cafe was very clean and hygienic. Right across from... More
