Yummy cakes. Cosy and comfortable. Loads of options.
Friendly service that goes the extra little bit you remember.
The cake special is a good deal.

“Lovely find!”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Found this cafe during out 2 day stay in Nelson- had the beef pie and chocolate hazelnut cake which were both delicious. Also had one of the best cups of tea I'd had in NZ, and loved the cups and saucers!
Would have loved to try more!

Had lunch with the best beef pie we have every had. Really great coffee in a huge mug. Quirky decor and great service. They also sell amazing chocolates.

“Regular favourite haunt”
Reviewed 14 January 2014

This is a great little cafe with very enthusiastic owners. I love the fact you can have freshly prepared lunch/brunch rather than just cabinet food. The chicken and apricot in filo is great as is the satay or brunch menu. Great value and happy atmosphere. Well done Sweet as!

“Delicious, reasonable and exactly what we were looking for!”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

Random stop while travelling the coast. We wanted a yummy lunch that didn't cost a fortune. We got exactly what we were looking for. Great service, great food, great mocca and a nice place to relax and chat. We took a cake for take away after the meal and it was also delicious. Well done to the staff they provided what we often look for yet rarely find while travelling.
