“Great cafe! Warm and welcoming...”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

We had brunch at this café. It was a cold and wet day and it was awesome to go into this lovely warm place. Great service - best we'd experienced on our trip. Food was lovely. Yep we will be back...

“Excellent coffee shop”
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”
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”
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.
