My partner and I came here when passing through Nelson last week and loved it! The pizza and nachos we had were fantastic and really good value for such huge portions. The service and atmosphere were similarly great, and it was so exciting to have so many vegan options to choose from! Will definitely be visiting again on our next trip through Nelson.

We are not vegetarian but like vegetarian food. We came here twice on someone's recommendation, and had different things each time, and loved all of it. My non vegetarian husband said that he had never had a better main...ever! Substantial portions, so you don't really need more than one course, though it's very tempting. I only wish we had somewhere like this at home!

We were a small group of five people and each chose different meals so saw a number of menu items from stuffed mushrooms to Asian Salad to Lasagne. The salads were drowned in dressing. Also, none of us is a large person, none of us has a large appetitite but we agreed that the portions could have been larger, especially for the prices, and did not really satisfy us. We saw larger plates including chips being served but we did not want chips to bulk out our meals. We are Nelson residents and know from experience other cafes which serve far better vegetarian food and at similar or lower prices, though only in the daytime, sadly: these are Broccoli Row and Morrison Street Cafe. If we wanted to eat at lunchtime, we would prefer to go to either of these. We are not overly fussy but just enjoy good vegetarian food.

The atmosphere is wonderful.
The burger with french fries are a must.
On Wednesdays you get a burger and a beer for a special price
