What a great culinary experience. We were visiting Nelson with friends and they suggested this restaurant as it offered breakfast, brunch and lunch. We were there at 11:30. Had amazing food, two of us tried the servers choice (brunch). Was a beautifully poached egg inside...an avocado that had been wrapped in bacon and deep fried. Delicious to say the least and very filling, came with a slawish salad and home fries. The others had a burger, mexican omellete and a lunch special which at the time was shrimp paella. All good. I wouldnt hesitate to come here again. Highlight of my tripMore

I’ve been waiting 40min for a grilled cheese sandwich and fries - while on my lunch break. The cook is slammed and on his own. Serving staff has not checked in at all. I just asked for it to be packaged to go. Staff seemed...unconcerned about it. DissapointingMore

This was our first time back in a while. There are new owners now. The menu is similar to before, with a few add-ons. I had the beef stroganoff. It was very tasty, and the beef was tender. My partner had salmon on saffron rice,...which he liked. They have quite a few cocktails listed, and from my seat I was able to watch the bartender making them carefully. Some of the low reviews from this summer were mostly about the service - they have a large outside patio, and with difficulty finding staff, I can see where that might be an issue. It was not an issue for us though. It is a small space, but the use of dividers between each seating area meant that you didn't feel like you were crowded next to each other. I would recommend trying out Rel-ish - family friendly and great food & drink.More

We were told to go sit on the patio, we were brought glasses and water and then sat for 30 minutes, we went in and were told they would be right there. The server came out a couple of times looked at us and kept...serving others. Once we got up to leave the server came up to us and said sorry I did not know you had not been served ….to late no offer to make it betterMore

Last day before we left and we stopped in here Maybe seating for thirty and a small location but it pumped out an excellent breakfast. Eggs Benny were top notch and the rest of my party enjoyed their meals.

We had a very good dinner here. The food was excellent and the menu featured a varied selection that would please just about anyone. I would say the service was the only issue but no fault of the kitchen just a country wide shortage of...people willing to work.More

The ambiance here is absolutely a vibe such a cute restaurant we sat outside for a bit but the bf got cold so we got a seat in. Loved the cute little details. The servers were amazing. The food was great! Got a Mayan burger...myself & the bf got a crispy chicken burger and swears it’s one of the best he’s had! We got poutine as well and the super creamy cheese was great compared to curds that wouldn’t melt 🤨! Never had dill on poutine but it was definitely something I never knew I needed on it - a plus for some fresh erb on there plus I’m a sucker for skinny fries poutine. Finally, the kombucha was delicious too. Totally recommended. Sorry for the long text just excited about my meal 😊More

I realize that there is short staffing during Covid but that was really not the excuse for the poor service at this restaurant. We arrived at 9 AM when they opened, were the first customers in the restaurant and our meal was serve. close to...10 AM. In the meantime at least 1 to 2 other customers came in, ordered their meals ate and left. The waitress brought us one bottle of water and one pot of coffee and then we didn’t see her again until the food was served almost an hour later. We finally had to ask someone at the bar to check on our meal. There were literally three cooks in the kitchen. Very disappointing experience.More
