Review byBrett Atkinson4/10/2011
Vibe
Coolly minimalist white décor softened by soothing candles and fresh flowers - a classy but relaxed look inspired by the iconic Betty Catroux, French model and muse to Yves Saint Laurent and Tom Ford.

Service
Efficient and friendly, especially from the super bubbly owner Adele Jenner. Look forward to being cheered up for the rest of your day.

Drinks List
Well-crafted caffeine hits from People Coffee, Harney & Sons fine teas and a terrific array of fresh fruit juices.

Highlights
Catroux presents a definite cut-above in counter food with gossamer-light lemon curd cakes, interesting spins on panini and toasted sandwiches – try the chicken, mozzarella and chorizo variation – and robust country-style sausage rolls. For a fuller Catroux experience, come for a leisurely brunch of the homemade blueberry muesli with yoghurt and vanilla rhubarb ($14.50), or the ham off the bone with scrambled eggs and gooey gruyere cheese ($16.50).

Most Surprising Dish
The pumpkin, brie and baby spinach omelette with plum chutney ($17).

The Bottom Line
Catroux delivers innovative spins on traditional brunch and lunch favourites amid flair and a super-friendly ambience. Welcome to one of Auckland’s best new cafes.

A Reason to Return
The weekends-only treat of Catroux’s version of Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon and a kumara, sage and potato rosti.
