My wife and I were there for lunch today .
I ordered a spinach salmon pastry and my wife had scrambled egg on cibatta bread .
We enjoyed our meals very much and the service was friendly and excellent.
Highly recommended.

Waited too long for one soup and one omelette although place less than half full at lunchtime. Soup bowl overheated in microwave so soup far too hot to eat. Won’t return.

Love Voila cafe, crepes are heavenly and service is also very friendly. Weekends can be busy due to the fantastic food but well and truly worth the wait. Service is superb as its always been, highly recommend Voila cafe.

Oh dear, this cafe has changed hands recently and the service has dropped dramatically. Same amount of staff but they seem unable to run as before. We and the tables around us waited far too long to have our order taken and we saw 2 meals being returned to the kitchen. What a shame this place used to be great.

Always friendly staff, amazing food, good coffee, but a wee bit slow at times, even when not a full house. Its always worth the wait, but you need to not be in a hurry. Will totally be back for more crepes!

We have lunch here regularly – everything is always delicious. Best thing is that they always have one choice which is healthy, low-fat and also delicious. Service is great and friendly. Sometimes the restaurant is full – but what can you expect when a local restaurant is this good.

Voila is a cute wee cafe tucked in amongst the variety of random stores in sandringham. its a little haven in the busy-ness of sandringham road.
i come here 3 – 4 times a week, and just LOVE it!
craig makes the most beautiful flat whites, lily’s fluffy mochas are delish, and the chefs out-do themselves everyday with freshly made pastries and gorgeous lunches in the cabinet, as well as the scrummy crepes!
try the la bretone crepe for something sweet [toffee and sea salt] or their crepe eggs benedict, its SO good!
on the weekends they can be busy, but dont get grumpy, its just because they are so good, and you should be in there to cruise in the weekend, not rush your gorgeous meal in 10 minutes!
if youre a coffee regular in the morning, they will get to know what you like, and have your takeaways ready for you asap, which is pretty cool.
thanks voila cafe, for being the only decent cafe between kingsland and titirangi!

I have been a regular for years. The food is wide ranging with a French/North African influence. Yes may be a slight wait but only because they’re popular. Try ALL the Pastries/ Baked goods. Try the roulades, try the crepes/galettes, try the specials.. In fact try everything! Fantastique!

We used to go to Voila all the time. It’s great to have some authentic French pastries and north African inspired French food in a suburban cafe.

The coffee is pretty good, but always a long wait.

They have amazing cakes too if you get in early enough.

The layout of the cafe isn’t as nice as it could be and you don’t go there for the decorations, but you can be pretty sure you will like your food.
