Established in 1989 and still a neighbourhood favourite! Cafe Florentine is the perfect place for a business breakfast, quick lunch, a glass of wine and nibbles with friends or for that special dinner occasion. We love our Florentine. Lead by a passionate team of individuals that continually strive to make your experience the best it can be, Florentine is something very special. You will be welcomed by Restaurant Manager, Ben Garrard, entertained by supervisors Victoria, Simon, Hannah,Annabel and spoiled by professional barman Liam and dazzled by the talented kitchen team led by James. All of our friendly team look forward to welcoming you. "To be inspired and to inspire others to continuously improve and push the boundaries of personal and professional achievement whilst maintaining a fun, team oriented environment."
