“Excellent coffee shop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014 via mobile

Good coffee, great breakfast, free wifi- whats not to like.

Only downside is breakfast is pricey at $20 NZD, and coffee is $4 for small cup no refill.

“Great coffee and breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

This place is great. Opens early so you can enjoy a yummy breakfast before a glacier walk or hike. The coffee it absolutely delicious as are the pancakes and eggs and bacon. We only stayed in Frans Josef for a day and a bit but visited this place three times…and it wasn't just for the free wifi!

“One of the better lunch stops on the west coast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013

The meat pies were delicious and a pretty good salad accompanied them - definitely recommend Full of Beans Franz Joseph for a good lunch in pleasant surroundings if you're travelling around this area.

“Great choice for breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2013

Four of us had breakfast here and had a good experience. Good was very good, decent portions and prompt, courteous service. Overall a very good experience and we'd recommend this place if you're looking for a quick, wholesome breakfast.
