Only had a coffee which was very good, had to wait for a bit to get it. The guy taking orders was nice and up for a friendly chat. Nice place to sit and you are aloud to take your dogs.

The shop was lovely with a awesome selection of chocolates - the vegetables looked great too :)! There was indoor/outdoor seating with lovely wooden tables. I highly recommend this awesome cafe...

Also in two months time a craft brewer will have built a brewery out the back so the will have Townsend beer for tasting. So if you are staying in Nelson and wanting a day out motueka is lovely and Toad hall... More

Both had flat whites that they served with a nice sized piece of dark chocolate. Appears they have lots of seating with a cool back patio but we got ours for takeaway to get on... More

Went for breakfast, food was ok with a wait time of about 30min which was ok, the place seems dirty mayby because of the rustic look but the toilets were filthy and poor, mayby I'll try the cabinet food next time..

Browny Chef, sadly you have given 3 great local eateries one star reviews, giving 2 bad reviews/ratings within 24 hours, one of the cafes you reviewed had been closed for more than 6 months before you rated it a 1 star. I would have to seriously wonder of your ulterior motives with these reviews. One restaurant you reviewed poorly, you... More
