Really good coffee at a competitive price, and a good loyalty card scheme. Slices and sandwiches available, and nice seating.

Kush is one of my favourite cafes in Nelson! Walk inside and it has the funky feel, staff are always friendly, this cafe has such a great vibe. Great for families too as there is plenty of seating and couches to sit at and sip...More

A great coffee bean you can buy in bulk and brew at home anytime. A great place to have a coffee when in Nelson and try different coffee beans.

Helpful staff in a funky setup. Lots of beans to choose from as well as other interesting drinks - like cashew milk turmeric latte (yum). Only thing I don't like is the chai, which is too sweet for me, but a matter of personal preference...More

Great coffee and fantastic little cafe. Really like the couches and funky decor, and locality of this place. Great place to while away half an hour if your stuck in town.

We stopped here for a coffee & cup of tea and slice. It's a quirky place with old style tables and chairs. A nice selection of salads and vegetarian choices and friendly staff.

Try the mango black tea, and don't forget to ask for a wifi code. Lucky Kush cafe is so big because they do a roaring trade in tea and coffee. We came here a few times in the couple of days we were in Nelson....More
