Esquires Features Sofitel Style

Light brioche, buttery croissants, perfect muffins, delectable cakes and stylish sandwiches are now on the menu at Queenstown’s Esquires Coffee House as it aligns its style with Queenstown’s only five-star hotel, Sofitel Queenstown.

Esquires is located on the lobby level of Sofitel Queenstown in front of a stunning water feature and offers a tranquil environment to enjoy coffee and a bite in central Queenstown.

Under the new arrangement, breakfast, coffee-time and lunch delicacies will be baked in the Sofitel kitchens and delivered fresh throughout the day to Esquires.

Sofitel Queenstown General Manager Mark Wilkinson said Esquires provided an ideal meeting place in the elegant and stylish Sofitel building.

“The lobby level of our building is a lovely place to meet and relax. We are delighted to be able to feature the best work of our patissier alongside the gourmet fair-trade organic coffee that Esquires is known for.”

Mr Wilkinson said that while the management of the coffee house would remain the same, with barista Lewis Warde leading the team, new services will include a business takeaway coffee delivery service and new operating hours from 7am to 5pm seven days a week.
