An experiential food destination, where your eye, as well as your palate, is appeased. 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.

Florences Foodstore & Cafe is on the outskirts of Wanaka, 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.

We like our food to reflect these changes and enjoy the pleasure of eating seasonally.

The foodstore is an emporium of local and imported food products.
