Florence's Cafe - on the road into Wanaka, is exactly the type of establishment travellers should visit if they want to experience excellent food and a great atmosphere. I found the menu interesting and varied with fresh local produce and daily specials on offer. (The eggs benedict were really excellent - top quality bacon, perfectly cooked eggs and an exceptional hollandaise sauce). The deli section has a selection of quality NZ goods, fresh artisan bread etc and the coffee was one of the best I had on my travels around Central Otago. There are a number of outdoor tables in the pretty courtyard/garden area and there's several indoor seating options. There seemed to be a good mix of locals and people passing through. Even though they were busy the service was efficient and friendly. This cafe stood out as being more authentic than some of the cafes in Queenstown/Wanaka that can feel soulless and similar. I would certainly recommend a visit.

While on annual holiday to Wanaka we always seek out and try new places for eats.Trip Advisor did not let us down.Good indoor outdoor seating.Unfortunately it was mid afternoon and selection in chiller cabinet was all but gone.I got the last sammy but I am sure they may have made somthing up but did not offer?Bite size cakes under glass covers not very big.Still it was a nice Coffee ,relaxing with reading material and you can brouse the shelves of gourmet food items and luxury imported Foods such as pasta.The fresh bread were popular as baskets empty.

This is one of our favourite spots...great coffee, fun (and genuinely happy) staff, and excellent food. Dangerously good treats with a great selection of amazing artisan products/groceries- A worthy stop for sure.
