Brigittes' motto is "there is no X in Espresso." The shop is certainly getting the experts' approval—it was recently named the best cafe in New Zealand. Polished wooden floors and bentwood chairs add a European flavour, with floor to ceiling windows providing alternating views of a busy Aikmans Road and a Mediterranean-style courtyard. An extensive wine list complements a large selection of juices, sandwiches and cakes. More substantial fare includes Eggs Florentine and Vinegared Figs and blue cheese on bruschetta, a favorite with regular customers. Fully Licensed.
