I live in Sydney and miss this wonderful little bakery! Every time I holiday in Nelson I stop here every morning for pastries and coffee. Amazing bread, pastries and service. The Snips with custard and rum are incredible and you've got to be fast before...More

Good coffee and delicious croissant. A little bit small place but good to visit to have breakfast or takeaway. I think this is the best bakery in Town.

A wee gem where locals buy the best sourdough bread, the tastiest wee treats and salads with fresh produce from the farmers markets. Our current favorite from a large selection of biscuits, cakes and other sweet treats include a Peanut butter and Belgian chocolate fudge....More
