Description: 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.

“Friendly service, many gluten free options”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

As someone who can't have gluten or most dairy, breakfast on the road is always difficult. What a delight to come across the Morrison Street Cafe with many delicious options to chose from and very willing to make substitutions to make my meal gluten free. I had poached eggs with rind less bacon on GF bread (great bread!) with a touch of pesto. I liked it so much I came back the next day! They also made a great Americano coffee with soy milk.

“Lovely, fresh food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

My Mum and I went here for lunch yesterday and we really enjoyed our food very much. We chose to sit inside as it was a bit cool for the garden and the décor was warm and inviting. All of the staff that we interacted with were helpful and friendly. The meals were tasty and of a decent size and price although I did feel that the coffee could have been a bit hotter. I would definitely dine here again.

“Another favourite in Nelson”

Fantastic coffee and a great lunch menu. Great staff and service as well. Has a nice outside area also which is a good place to sit and watch on Market Day in Morrison Square on Wednesdays.

Great review thank you. We love the Farmers Market on Wednesday too - it brings a real vibrancy to the Square, and the cafe

“Morrison Street Cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014

My partner and I had brunch here recently, for the first time. We will certainly be going back, next time we're in Nelson. This cafe was very popular and we were lucky enough to get the last table mid-morning on Sunday. The decor is well done, it has a good "feel" to it. The menu was impressive and they had a good selection of savoury and sweet cabinet food as well. We both thoroughly enjoyed the meals we had. they were a generous serving size as well as high quality. The service was really good and the staff was friendly.

“excellent lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

Had a great lunch here today. Lemon cuscous salad with feta and cranberry, followed by a lemon slice with yogurt. Highly Recommended.
Enjoyed it so much that I went back again the next day with my husband. He raved about the platter so much! Said it was the best lunch he had tasted in a long while. I had the creamy eggs with salmon which were delicious - this café is a must visit and next time we visit Nelson, we will be back!
