Smiling welcome, hot steaming coffee, tempting food offerings, toasty warm atmosphere on a chilly wintry morning. We enjoyed our visit and shall happily return.

Small cafe on a vineyard. Great coffees and also a selection of alternate milks. Gluten free treats. Also home made pizzas with gluten free options have them there with a bottle of local wine or take them home. Great work Sarah.

We went here about 3 months after Sarah had taken over the lease. She (and her staff) made the place feel very welcoming. With her father cooking the wood fired pizza, it's a real family affair. Great pizzas, local wine and beautiful soroundings.

Floating Rock, a Kuratau staple, has had a change of ownership and is reinvigorated. Now open longer hours, more delish pizzas, friendly staff and the same lovely outlook over the vines. A winning location to enjoy a few wines and pizza while catching up with...More

I visited here a few days ago with my daughter and grandchildren. A very nice place to spend some time amongst the vines. Pizzas very nice, and a small selection of other dishes too. People were buying wine from the cellar door, why wouldn’t you,...More

Been a number of years since our last visit to the region. Floating Rock still looking great, wine tasty and the coffee good. Such a beautiful setting.

The cafe is tucked away among a small Vinyard which sets the scene for the place. They have great pizza and their gluten free base is one of the best I've tried. Their wines are lovely and we went home with a case. Great little...More
