Had a nice breakfast here and also visited a couple of times for coffee. Nice surroundings evocative of the sixties with helpful staff.

We always have great food here. Great service, great staff, great food, great coffee. We often have breakfast, lunch or just coffee here. A very good selection of food even though we tend to stick to our favourite meal each time. Can get busy but we don't usually need to wait long for the food to arrive. Highly recommend!

My partner and I had brunch here while staying in Nelson, something we always do every time we're here. The place has a great quirky bohemian ambiance to it. It is on the right side of the street, so that it gets the sun really well. They have an extensive menu and selection of cabinet food for breakfast, lunch or morning / afternoon tea. The food is really good quality. The staff are really friendly, even when they busy (which they normally are here.

We came here because the atmosphere looked good and it's always busy.
After eating there I must say I wondered why when there are so many other, better venues. We were advised there would be a wait, which was longer than we were initially advised. The good when it arrived was really quite poor, and I was disappointed. It also seemed quite expensive for what it was. It seems this is a Nelson icon, though I wouldn't recommend it.
