My wife and I love this cafe – finally a decent one in Warkworth! It is better than any in Matakana either, with great coffee, traditional style French pastries and lovely salads etc. My wife is from the Caribbean and grew up on french pastries and she really rates the ones at So French.
We met Kristell when she managed Pyrenees in Mt Albert and thought she was a lovely hostess there – so were excited to see her face when So French opened in Warkworth.
We live at Leigh but go in to this cafe every time we go to Warkworth.
As for the other lady having issues with the crumbs – we haven’t found any cleanliness issues (and are really fussy), but I definitely notice I drop a lot of crumbs if I eat a crumbly danish – it kinda comes with the territory…I’d hate to see the streets in Paris!

I’ve been to “So French” twice since they opened and had great coffee and excellent pastries on both occasions. The second visit we picked up some salami, bread, cheese and pickles on our way to Tawharanui and the delicacies made an excellent picnic lunch. Great to see quality, French deli food available this far north of the city!

Well, as a first time visitor to the French café as a treat by a friend I was not so impressed. I found the seating quite inadequate. My friend and I went upstairs to the ‘Lounge’ only to find that the table was filthy; both lounger and sofa was covered in crumbs and the floor area was just covered in bits of pastry and other such debris. We had to ask for the table to be wiped but on making a further comment about the floor – this was laughed off. I felt quite uncomfortable sitting amongst other peoples dirt and did not enjoy the experience at all. The milles feuilles I had was really very dry but I put that down to the time of day – 3.15pm. Cleanliness is the priority for any eating establishment in my books.

Dear Jill, We are so sorry you had such a bad experience to the point of feeling like writing a second bad review on another website. We’ve already apologised for the “sticky” table and respond in a very friendly manner to your comments but as it seems that…    More »

OK, I live near Warkworth and frequent the cafes very often (a little too often according to the Mrs!) principally for coffee, though I have been known to have the odd slice or muffin. My old favorite is Ginger Cafe as the coffee is excellent and the nibbles are very good as well.

Unfortunately, since the French Deli-Cafe has opened, I have changed allegiances, not because Ginger has dropped its standards, but the coffee at the French cafe is just that bit better, though only marginally (yes, I know, coffee snob).

I shall still go back to Ginger as I do rather like to sit outside, something not offered by the French cafe, but for perhaps the best coffee in the area, it now has to be the French cafe.

Vive la France!
