Florentines Coffee and Gift Shoppe, situated in Myrtle Road, off Main Road Kenilworth, oozes ‘olde worlde’ charm and character.
Florentines is run by the owners, Janet, Felicity and Christa, who know what a difference the personal touch and excellent service makes and strive to offer this and more to everyone who comes in the door. It is a destination coffee shop of note.
Cakes, muffins and many other delicious lunch specials are baked on the premises by Christa, who is a Silwood trained Pastry Chef. The traditional english scones and florentine biscuits are a must!
The coffee is steaming hot and tea is served in a teapot, covered with a beautiful handmade tea cosy. The teacups are old fashioned treasures and some of the regulars request their favourites.
Florentines is a Mantelli’s Factory Shop Outlet and sells a range of the delicious Mantelli’s biscuits and rusks at factory shop prices as well as shelves filled with unusual gifts and a selection of delicious homemade jams and fudge.
The relaxed feeling experienced at Florentines lends an air of a bygone era to the whole experience of having a cuppa and even the washroom is a talking point, with a gold painted, bejeweled, toilet cistern and a stunning chandelier.
Basic Sushi Lessons are also offered on a regular basis and prove to be very popular and loads of fun for individuals or as a team building exercise.
