It was so nice to find a cafe that doesn't serve the same breakfast menu as every other cafe in NZ. Their Moroccan eggs were delicious, as was the coffee. I can't wait to go back!

We have been here a few times and always enjoy it. Brunch today was very good with and egg Bennie and a full breakfast. The eggs were done perfectly on both dishes and the Wakefield bacon has to be the best I've tasted in a long time. The sausages were a little disappointing on the full breakfast but a minor... More

Visited thus cafe while in Nelson for work. I enjoyed the Montreal meal as it was very tasty and the salmon was delicious. The coffee was good and so was the service. Wouldn't hesitate to go back.

Fabulous food fun service. A big rustic cafe. Very noisy though. You can order incredible carrot cake or cabinet food. The scones are a tad dry. The coffee is great. The meals are really tasty.

The food was average, they got my order wrong and I was mocked by staff... I don't plan on returning there again. I would say from past experience that they are better for cabinet food.

My husband had a Big Breakfast which was a generous size for $19.50 you'd normally be paying $22 and not getting the potatoes and beans. I had the whole meal pancakes again a good size for the price and loved the pecans. Both meals were good quality and really tasty. Great coffee. Would definitely go back.

Dropped into here on a sunny Friday for a light lunch around 1:30. Not very busy. Ordered the fried mushrooms with Mozzarella cheese on grainy bread. Excellent flavours. Service was very quick, and the coffee excellent. Free WIFI on site which is a bonus. Sunny courtyard is a must when the suns out.

Multiple Winner of Best Cafe in Nelson. Bright, busy cafe in an historic building in central Nelson. Strong following of loyal locals but plenty to entice visitors as well. The menu changes seasonally and focuses on fresh, natural flavours that build on a number of ethnic cuisine styles. Our breakfasts have a large fan base with favourites like the Bacon & Eggs and our Pancakes staying on the menu year after year. Lunch includes fresh Salad Bowls, tasty Chicken Satay and the ever popular Pad Thai. There's plenty of fresh baking each day, a healthy kids menu and our coffee is excellent. There are lots of options for wheat, gluten & dairy sensitive people and vegetarians as well.
