It was a busy Sunday morning and the service was great. Excellent poached eggs on sourdough . The smoked salmon bagel perfect and the coffee as good as you can get.

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...More

Thank you for your review and if I was a traveller I'd love it and would go to Florences immediatel!. Please make yourself known to my girls when and if you next visit - would love to shout you a coffee.

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 dayMore

Thank you for your review. I myself love the multigrain. I take note of your mention of size, but the calorie content etc between the two is equal. Its tricky nowadays as portion sizes are way bigger than they used to be, and some folk...More

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...More

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...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...More

Thankyou Bert . I like your comment 'city quality in a country town'. We do try and embrace the provincial elements of our environment.

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...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...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?
