Chose Medici at random as somewhere that we could grab a quick lunch. The menu was quite limited but I could from what was coming out of the kitchen that the quality was high. We had two lattes and shared a club sandwich which came with fries and a salad. It was delicious and more than enough for two.

We had brunch at Medici during our visit to Martinborough recently we enjoyed the food and coffee but the service was very average. The cafe wasn't busy but any requests for coffee or other beverages were either ignored or delayed. The decor is lovely but staff need to step up the service not all of us have all day to... More

Had two meals here. Lunch and breakfast and on each occasion the food and service was great! Staff efficient and pleasant, the owner/chef busy cooking up a storm and the huge sausage rolls a must have. I was born in NZ although I have lived in Australia these past 50 years, and when I was a kid my Nanna made... More

Medici is a cafe for lunch, dinner or just coffee. It is great in summer and winter ( a coffee and date scone next to the fire cannot be beaten on a winter's morning). The food is good and the staff friendly. You can sit out in the garden, on the street front or inside. Overall a really good experience... More

The coffee is good here and so is the service. We enjoyed our breakfast, the food is full of flavour and well presented, and the staff are willing alter the menu slightly to accommodate dietary needs. Would recommend this cafe to others, as I don't think you can go wrong. Thanks Medici!

Great place and if I lived locally I'd be living in this cafe! Great service, fantastic food and awesome coffee. Nice and spacious with lovely atmosphere. table service. Only downside, somewhat pricey: long black $4, Latte $4.80. The Farmers breakfast was one of best breakfast's my husband has had out...$21 but a real feed and beautifully cooked and presented. Keep... More

Good menu selection but finally chose corn fritters and they were the best I've eaten! The coffee is great and it came hot, and service excellent.

My husband and I went on a Friday for lunch. The place was half full so not busy. We both ordered Chicken Tomatoe Bacon Sandwiches with fries and coffee. The coffee came out first and was hot as requested however we had to wait 15 minutes for it and then wait a further 1/2 hour for our food. Even though... More
