Have just finished lunch and cannot praise this place enough. Although we were sitting outside you have to go indoors to order. The main menu consists of bagels, which I'm not a fan of, but inside there is a range of salads and pies which should suit every taste. After ordering and paying the food is brought to the table...

called in here for breakfast. Recommend that people have the eggs on sourdough rather than the eggs on whole meal as the difference in size was very noticeable. It was very tasty though and a great way to start the day

Lovely place, useless serviced. All you saw were customers sitting at tables with dirty dishes. Had to ask for a table to be cleared up and wait up to 5 times. Others around us were having the same trouble. Lady at the counter was rude to my gluten free friend to.

Emma, you sound like a whiney, spoilt child. Some of your other reviews support this too. This was a holiday weekend and we served 800 people on average each day, so yes we were busy. None of my staff recollect anyone asking them to clear dishes off the tables, and certainly not five times! I was on the floor and... More

This is a great little shop not your standard grocery stop, it is full of local gourmet treats. The cafe sells some great treats, sitting with a coffee enjoying the fresh mountain air was a real treat on the outdoor dining area!

This where can you get authentic food ingredients and a host of other things. What a great place, well thought out and an excellent range of frozen "heat and eat" dishes. Must do

We stopped by for a snack and coffee. It was a great day and had a table outside. Whilst there is some indoor seating, the best option is to enjoy the large garden outside. The choice inside Florences is great, for souvenirs, the home or to consume. This is city quality in a country town.

We ordered egg benedict which is quite nice, but a little bit overcooked on the eggs, and i was hoping for 2toast to make it balanced to eat. But the coffee is very nice, well made! And the place is cute as well, you can find many things to buy for a gift or for your home cooking. This place... More

Thankyou Winda. I'm sorry you felt your eggs were overdone- they aren't usually . Most people only want one piece of sourdough with their eggs because they are wary of bread . If you had come to us at the counter and told us we could easily have done you another meal to your liking. More

Well Duncan you've cut and pasted this from your Facebook post . To be on holiday and post the same post on two different sites, is a perfect way to idle away a holiday. .
