This is a wee treasure of a cafe. A very good coffee made exactly as requested but the unexpected highlight was the muffin. I don't like muffins in general but today's sweet muffin of walnut, coffee and dark chocolate moist, light and delicious. I'll be back next time I visit Nelson.

Excellent strong double shot coffees made to perfection and really taylored our breakfast to what we were after (few wine the night before, extra large bacon sandwiches plus muffins and scones, PERFECTLY baked, to go!). Really enjoyed the atmosphere too, lovely clean modern place - Quite a gem.

This is a real culinary oasis in Richmond. Not pretentious yet still offering very high quality, tasty and imaginative food at good prices. The scones and home-baking are very delicious and they've got a great girl who makes the best coffee in town by far. I've also bought some takeaway food from Lydia's Cafe to enjoy at evening dinner and it has always been really tasty as well as being made with wholesome ingredients too.
This is a busy place at lunchtime so get there early if you can. You won't be disappointed. Bon appetit.

I went to this cafe about 2 days ago! What I thought? Very good.
The food the service it's all fab every time I go there it's the same. The workers look like they are enjoying been there witch is nice to see. The one thing I would have to say is the big table in the middle is a little awkward but then again it's nice but of wood. I can't complain about this place at all!!
