Florences Foodstore & Cafe is on the outskirts of Wānaka, set in the Heritage Park that beautifully reflects the four seasons: the business of hot, dry summer days, the multi-hued colours of autumn, the white wonderland of winter with its international visitors and the baby pink confetti of our cherry blossoms in the spring. The sun always finds its way through the windows or into the garden courtyard or on the faces of those who enter Florences for the first time. It is ambient with its provincial decor, its classic, yet simple food, its sumptuous food displays, elegant tea in silk tea bags, or great, reliable coffee. The foodstore is an emporium of local and imported food products.

Florence’s Food Store & Cafe has frozen meals ready-to-go, artisan bread, in-house product and local and imported goodies, all presented in a food wonderland. In summer, the gardens are in full bloom to enjoy your outdoor dining and summer drinks.

One can eat and drink at the cafe or on the outdoor terrace, and also wander through the foodstore, tasting and enjoying the display of foods local and imported.

The Provincial Long Table is hosted on Wednesday nights; a set meal of three courses and a wine tasting from Wānaka wineries. Seats can be bought at $50 per person.

Got an event? Wanting to treat your staff to a morning or afternoon tea? Florence’s is also a great place to host staff-do’s or company events with delicate finger foods for $3 a piece. Consider a High Tea for those special birthdays or occasions with Harney & Sons tea, minimum 12 people.
