Oh, la la! Newtown becomes
the France of the south
French Cancan opened only
last month, but I ve heard
so much about it, I thought
I d better check it out.
The cafe is situated in the
Lychgate Centre, in Riddiford St,
Newtown, and has replaced the
very dowdy and downmarket
There s nothing shabby about
French Cancan. It s fresh and
clean. Images of the Eiffel Tower
are to be found round the walls.
The staff all speak real French,
the sort you don t learn at school.
Above all, it s incredibly... pink.
We went with pink to empha-
sise the confectionary aspect of
what we sell, said Sophie Haus-
ser, who owns the cafe with her
We wanted to create a sweet
and cosy atmosphere.
My sister and I, plus one-year-
old Axel, stopped by at lunchtime
There were teething problems,
which could be partly attributed
to the cafe being opened so
recently -- no highchair and no
credit card payment facilities.
On the other hand, Ms Dubois
made genuine efforts to locate a
highchair, including asking at a
And she provided Axel, who was
not showing much interest in the
savories in front of him, a tasty
and well-presented piece of
madeleine cake, which I might
add was devoured with unseemly
French Cancan offers a bewil-
dering array of croissants, cakes,
chocolates, breads, jams, pastries
I could feel the kilos piling on as
I stood at the counter perusing the
food, but forged on bravely.
In the end I went with the lamb
filo and the spinach pastry ($7
each) and my sister tried the free-
range chicken roll ($5). All were
extremely tasty, and just that bit
different to what we are used to
In the interests of giving a more
comprehensive review, we also
ordered a banana, cinnamon and
nuts slice ($5.50). It was mouth-
I m a bit surprised that French
Cancan has opened in Newtown,
and especially where it is, just 100
metres from another French
patisserie, Simply Paris.
The owners who, since leaving
France have lived in South Korea
and on the North Shore, like the
cosmopolitan feel of Newtown.
To judge by the steady stream
of people in the cafe grabbing
takeaway delicacies, their punt
just might work.
French Cancan is open Monday to
Friday, 8am till 5pm. The Haussers
are contemplating opening on
Kittens go to
More than 60 homeless animals have found homes
thanks to an SPCA adoption drive.
As part of the SPCA s annual Adoptathon, held
last weekend, animal shelters in Newtown and
Waikanae were able to adopt out 62 pets.
Spokesman Frankie Walker said this year s
event coincided with a recent surge in the number
of kittens brought into the SPCA.
Fortunately we were able to desex and
microchip the majority of them in time to be
adopted, and we re extremely happy with the
Thirty kittens and 17 cats were adopted from
the Newtown shelter during the Adoptathon.
Ms Walker said there were still plenty of cats
and kittens available.
