Dropped in for a coffee and decided to have some lunch as well. The lasagne was absolutely great! Great little spot to warm up after doing some hikes.

Dropped in for a coffee on the way to the glacier. It was busy and there was a small delay but understandable. Coffee was very nice to our Australian taste buds. Staff were friendly. Looks lie a good place for lunch. Prices seemed average.

We had some time before finding out we weren't going to fly and this place hit the spot for breakfast. Chai tea and eggs benedict with mushrooms filled the spot. Antique posters if you are looking for quirky. Great staff.

We ate lunch here and all had burgers, but plenty of other options as well. They were all really good. Service was friendly and quick.

We had lunch at Full of Beans while in Franz Josef. The service was good and the food ok. I had the Seafood Chowder which wasn't something I would recommend. Another in our party had the Cheese Wedges which were much better.

Had breakfast and lunch twice at this charming and quaint café during our stay at Franz Josef.! As the town is really small and not much of a crowd, it felt like we had the whole town to ourselves, just chilling to the oldies music...More

Lovely food options done well. I went twice first time I had eggs Benedict and the bread was great! The hot blackcurrant and honey tea was also a treat. The second time I had a really great pie. Fully recommend.

Relaxing and comfortable place for breakfast and lunch. Ordered Vegetarian Omelette, and it can feed two girls! Well, at least I can't finish it on my own. The big breakfast has gluten free option, which you can ask for more mushroom to replace the bread...More

We only went there for breakfast and lunch, what they are more known for. They list a closing time of 9pm, however as the others have answered it seems they close earlier than that. There are many great places for dinner... More
