Tartines French Cafe
Tartines French Cafe is proud to be a part of the Eastbourne Community. Nestled in the Village Corner, it boasts a beautiful, warm and sunny conservatory with lots of space to enjoy authentic French patisserie’s as well as breakfast/ brunch & lunch.
Camille Furminieux, the owner, comes from Rhone Valley in France where she obtained a Hospitality Degree, specialising in Fine dining. At 19 she left France and travelled her way through Ireland and America where she explored & developed her passion for customer service and French cuisine.
Landing in New Zealand in 2011 she fell in love with the beautiful land, people & lifestyle. After exploring the country, Camille settled in Wellington where she spent 7 years working at one of Wellington’s leading fine dining restaurants.
In 2018 Camille decided to venture out on her own and had the opportunity to set up Tartines in the beautiful village of Eastbourne. It was an easy decision as Eastbourne reminds her of the quaint village communities back home.
Head Chef, Laurent Loudeac who joins Camille recently, also comes to us from France but spend the last 25 years in New Zealand.
The pair has been working together for almost a decade and won in 2015, the Global Dilmah Real High Tea Challenge held in Sri Lanka.
Their aim is to create an authentic French menu that they can share with the good people of Eastbourne. A little piece of France, with all the delights of their childhood memories of café and home cooked treats.
