The new look Chateaubriant: with authentic French bread, and cheeses, invigorating coffee and tasty French treats served by charming staff. Purveyor of ‘Specialités Francaises’ – it’s a little slice of France on the North Shore.

Popular at the Saturday brunch scrum when shop plus pavement are both filled with locals starting the morning with coffee and a little bite of France.

You’ll find everything from a warm baguette with ‘a deliciously unctuous smoked liver pâté’, or a runny, rich unpasteurised Brie, or a Croque Monsieur made with a croissant.

Leisurely paced preparation of your coffee allows you to indulge in an indepth exploration of what else is on offer. Free-range chickens; plastic wrapped meat cuts; saucisse from the chiller; bread avec toppings; plus rich & luxurious containers of confit de canard. Also, heat-and-eat meals in the freezer, meatballs in fab-looking sauces, a smoked trout dish, a lasagne, braises of lamb.

Located at the refurbished Vauxhall Shops near Devonport, Chateaubriant Cafe & Deli was formerly known as Pyrénées.

Fantastic rotiserrie chicken – so moist! And a wonderful range of pastries, but the piece de resistance is the SMOKED chicken liver pate with port… incredible.
We are very lucky to have this piece of France in our village – it’s like a magic interior, packed with choice French tastes and smells and even sounds. Merci bien!

Went here last week and had the most divine mousse. Finally a REAL french cafe. Hot chocolate was good, friendly staff. Will defiantly be back again to try coffee, bread and dips.

What can I say! The wife and I stumbled across this hidden gem on a day trip to Devonport and we are so glad we did. The food and service was superb considering how busy it was, and now I understand why. I had the classic baguette and my wife the rooster smoked chicken, both delicious and good value. Coffee was great and the waitress friendly. The atmosphere transports you back to France. We do hope to return.
Merci chateaubriant!

I am French and I love going there for a coffee and a croissant now and then and go to Cheltenham beach. But that stops there. The food on the side such as the cheese or other French food is out of reach. Being vegetarian I got a baguette sandwich one day and was very disappointed as there was only two oily spread/hummus, some pumpkin seeds and about three mesclun leaves! I paid that $7.50! Not even a slice of tomato or cucumber! I’d rather buy the baguette in the future and make my own.
