Unbelievably rude owner will never go back. Ruined my day refusing to serve coffee as I did not have my own takeaway cup. Not something you pack for a 3 day holiday. I’m fully behind Wanaka doing swap a cup but this needs to be...advertised.More

Food was ok. Really struggled with the pretentious service. Were not child friendly and made to feel very uncomfortable about having our kids

After enjoying a coffee and slice while doing some work on my laptop, the owner approached me and said they were not a business centre and turned her back mid conversation. Unbelievable behaviour and inefficient business sense given that she has lost my future business...in exchange for one more spare table in a half empty cafe. Very disappointing and upsetting.More

Wednesday nights, Florences does a provincial table dinner...2 tables of 12 people where they serve up a 3 course meal and you get to chat with and meet new people. The food was great - homemade chicken liver pate, beef bourginon with breadcrumbed pumpkin and...chocolate & almond torte. The wine was fab and the company was refreshing. If you are looking for a fun and gourmet Wednesday night you will not be disappointed!More

Trendy store and cafe serving a range of food and good coffee. Outside tables for the fine days. Opening hours appear to vary at times. A little out of the town but good parking

4 of us got together here for 11am Brunch. The young lady behind the counter was friendly; the waitress was very accommodating - we moved tables due to shade, and she was lovely - didnt mind in the least. Great eggs florentine - hubbie ordered...eggs benedict which was tasty and perfectly cooked. Good coffee - that arrived promptly. Definetely return.More

A beautiful location which is completely forgotten once ordering food which is basic at best, staff are unfriendly and not obliging.food is expensive, only go to the shop for produce anything else is a disappointment and will leave you still hungry and unable to buy...another meal elsewhere.second time this has happened.never been charged extra for scrambled eggs due to an extra egg? Wake up Florence?More

We have no one with red hair who works here and there are locks on the toilet doors - are you sure you have the right place?
