Burgers were tasty, although expensive but it is Franz Josef!! Service was friendly but pretty slow. Unclear whether you order at counter, or service, same with paying the bill! Was okay.

Visited for a take away coffee on departure from town to next destination. The management need to have a serious talk about front of house appearances to their staff. In the 20 mins it took to get our coffees, not ONE staff member smiled, laughed nor had a general demeanor of pleasantness about them. I understand that this is a... More

After for travelling for 2 weeks in NZ this place had the rudest and non existent service we've encountered. My husband had to shout to the waitress 4 times to get her attention. Ended up going inside to order. The food was just 'ok'. My chicken burger was so tough I couldn't eat it. The 2 stars are for the... More

I'm still in shock with what I just came out of. Decided to come into Franz for lunch with my 2 children. We ordered 2 glasses of Orange juice, 1 ice chocolate, a bowel of fries and a already made ham,cheese and tomato croissant just after 2pm. I asked for my croissant to be toasted. NOT hard! Our drinks came... More

Went into full of beans on Monday for brekkie, big menu. Asked at the counter what could be diary free. The attendant didn't know so checked with a colleague who advised to check with the kitchen. The cafe assistant came out of the kitchen and said nothing... I asked if the omelette could be dairy free? No. Really disappointing that... More

Full of Beans was a busy place with people of all ages. It had the authentic feel of restaurant in a resort for outward bound enthusiasts and tourists alike. The restaurant was clean and offers good choice on its menu. The food was well cooked and portion sizes very good. Service was prompt and free wi-fi was available.

The day was grey and cold and it was raining. The mountains had disappeared and it was not looking promising for a hike to glacier. However this cafe provided a welcome warmth for breakfast and catch up on wifi while we considered our options. The Muesli, fresh fruit and yoghurt was a good size and enjoyable and the coffee was good.

Popped in for flat whites, and to check out the buns. Muffins were delicious, and they came warmed - mmmmmm!!! Lovely. Friend had a venison pie - also very good. Nicely centrally located, with inside and outside seating.

Good coffee, free wifi, we had muesli and pies for breakfast, food was good (NZD 15 for muesli, pies were around NZD 6). Coffee was strong, which is what I like so we went back again the next day to grab coffees before setting out on a long drive out of franz josef. Would dine here again if we were... More
