Loved the food, atmosphere and friendly service. The staff have a great sense of humor. My wife and I shared a big breakfast and both felt full at the end. Generous servings and delicious. Quick service would recommend to anyone.

Visited for the first time after reading reviews for breakfast in Nelson. Wow! It was stunning, great service and the food was divine, flavours excellent, all made fresh and large servings. Well worth seeking out when in Nelson, tucked away in Stoke just off the Main Road. Will definitely return now we have found this gem.

We always love to visit Crusoes
We always feel very welcome no matter how busy they are
And they are usually busy which ultimately tells me that others know how great this lovely cafe is.
The food is superb, a well presented and interesting menu
You can choose something small and quick from the cabinet or a meal from the full menu
They cater for all our dietary needs - dairy free, gluten free, vegetarian, etc - never a problem to Rami
The Jonuts are DF & GF and win a huge Hi5 from my teen daughter!!
I especially can never get past the salmon & feta salad - the feta is made onsite and the salmon is house smoked.
It is absolutely delicious.
The bubble tea is also wonderful
And no matter how hard I try I can never escape without finishing with a Sin in a Jar!!

The staff here are amazingly friendly and efficient and the food matches that. There is a great choice of different foods and they say things may take an extra bit of time as everything is made fresh from scratch and you can taste that. Very worth the visit, we called down for breakfast one day and returned for lunch the next........excellent!

We got the Shakshouka, Eggs Benedict, and Eggs on Toast for breakfast - all super good. Must try the Magic Mushrooms and the homemade aioli. Portions are quite large (congruent with the prices) and we couldn't finish it all. Order items under the the "Very Hungry" category with caution; it's quite a bit of food!
