Bright and modern with a few subtle nods to a traditional French bistro – gleaming white wall tiles, a shiny zinc counter top, and old school containers for French cheese. It’s a simple, white canvas that allows the food to shine.


Smooth and friendly from the outset, with a slightly longer wait than expected for our meals to arrive from the kitchen. It’s a small glitch though, easily forgiven given the quality of the food.

Drinks List

Terrific coffee and a great selection of juices and fruit-infused mineral waters. Apparently a liquor license is soon to be approved for this Britomart eatery, promising French wines and ciders.


The L’Assiette Big Breakfast ($18.50), a dish on most café menus, but taken to another level with creamy pomme dauphine potatoes, sweet vine tomatoes and superb Toulouse sausages.

Most Suprising Dish

Wild mushrooms in a creamy thyme white wine sauce ($13.50), revealing more than a few unfamiliar, but very tasty, mushroom varieties.

The Bottom Line

L’Assiette offers a chic combination of a relaxed Kiwi café and an authentic French bistro.

A Reason To Return

Heading back for the lunch menu and diving into the simple pleasures of Scotch Fillet with garlic butter, pomme dauphine ($19.50) and a glass of red wine.
