I read some reviews of this which didn't like their coffee but I found it to be nice and the staff to be friendly. It's quite a compact space inside but there's also some tables outside for those who want a bit of sun with their meal. I went here a couple of times and liked the feel of the... More

Went back for the first time in a long time, and since the 're-branding' the atmosphere isnt there and the food just isnt as good. Was there for brunch with a group and everyone was at least a little disapointed at their meals. They were all OK, not bad at all, but just lacking a littel in flavour and looking... More

The Morri Cafe has been established in Nelson for a number of years and everytime i go back it impresses. IT has a range of food options from menu to cabinet food and a range of seating for individual to large group, indoor and outdoor. Foods tend to be on the healthy side and have options for gluten free. My... More

Visiting from Auckland for the weekend, we were keen to have a tasty cafe style breakfast in Nelson. A friend had recommended that we check out Morri Street and so we did - the food was excellent. We ordered an eggs Benedict, banana/bacon pancakes and spiced chai porridge (the first morning). All 3 meals were delicious - lovely presentation and... More

Morri Street Cafe is excellent. In fact we came here yesterday and were so impressed we tried to return today but there was a long wait for a table so reluctantly went elsewhere. Food, coffee, service, decor, and ambience all excellent. Highly recommended.

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.
