“We really like this place”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

We discovered this art gallery and cafe on a previous visit to Nelson and were keen to return. The gallery and shop are excellent. Make sure you look at the art in the large folders as well as that hanging on the wall. The cafe is small but very good. Coffee is excellent; leaf tea available. Both of us were very pleased with our light meals. Staff very friendly and efficient. Will most certainly pop in again when in Nelson.

“Great little coffee stop”
Reviewed 13 March 2014

Nothing to dislike here. The Red Art Gallery Cafe serves wonderful coffee - I like to taste the coffee and not just the milk and theirs was just right. My chocoholic friend had a brownie which just oozed chocolate and couldn't wipe the satisfied grin off his face. I was delighted with my slab of smoked salmon, caramelised onion and caper tart and I am sure I will be back for more.

“Love this place”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

This is a great place to go if you appreciate quality. Not just great coffee but organic as well. . . and the milk in it. The Art Gallery environment is quality as well. Friendly staff and it is a really comfortable place to be solo in.

“Recommended!”
Reviewed 18 December 2013

Great little cafe with relaxed atmosphere and creative, gallery surroundings.

Nice coffee and small selection of home baked treats.

Enjoyed a couple of visits.

(Note - a couple of stairs to get in so not wheelchair friendly, and hard with a pram)

“Great coffee and nibbles”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

Want a good coffee in Nelson then come here. Baking is done in house and comes up with some really tasty nibbles to accompany the brew e.g. the friands.
