Came in after many great experiences here to grab a takeaway coffee, after a long wait the coffee was disgusting. This place has changed so much since last time but not for the better.

The food is always tasty, the location central, and staff consistently friendly. Some of the artwork is a bonus.

My wife and I went for breakfast. She had the vegan choice and I ate the pancakes. The pancakes were unusual and I never tasted anything so good! My wife enjoyed her choice as well. The coffee and service was excellent. Highly recommend!

Highly impressed by the friendly attentiveness of the staff. We were seated immediately and coffees arrived quickly - they were smooth to drink and obviously made with awesome beans! The vibe was chilled and the diverse range of customers all looked happy to be there. Had easily the best gluten free scone I've ever had followed by gluten free fruit... More

We popped in for lunch and found an interesting menu with choices that satisfied my wife's limited food options (gluten free and minimal histamines). The food was great and very reasonably priced. The local beer was good and the affogato and hummingbird cake an excellent finish. The service was prompt and friendly and the atmosphere and decor contributed to a... More

The food was amazing and the staff very friendly. Definitely could not ask for better. My gluten free, dairy free and histamine free diet was catered for brilliantly. Will definitely be returning.i

A group of friends and I went here to try their burger night and they were so good! Very tasty and the perfect size with a side of fries. Service was great and we didn't have to wait long for our food.

came twice but none of the waitress said "hi" to me once, and I had to wait 15 minutes for a takeaway coffee, the management and the quality of staff should be improved , Many places around where you can find a nice coffee and a smile .

Had a beautiful breakfast here - Moroccan eggs were very flavourful and my partners big breakfast was big ... with beautiful flavourable bacon and meaty sausages. Coffee was great - there's nowhere to hide in a short black and the flavour was delicious.

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.
