Thx for the review. Sorry you didn’t enjoy our superfood smoothies - nelson locals tell us they are the best in town as we use only the best ingredients and include things like Maca and chia seeds.

Lots of healthy food options here including freshly squeezed juice and smoothies. The coffee was great too. There are plenty of options for seating inside and out and a table for children which makes life easier for parents. The slices are delicious!

Just had a delicious open sandwich in Kitchen. The staff were very pleasant and accommodating when I want to add a poached egg to my lunch. Food was very tasty. Would recommend if you are in the area.

Description
The Kitchen is a wholefoods cafe at its simplest. We want to inspire you to think differently about the fuel we put in our bodies, to encourage you that making plant based and healthy choices doesn't mean missing out, in fact it's quite the opposite. It's not about being perfect, it's about achieving life balance and wellness through better nutrition and food knowledge. We use the best local produce (organic where possible) and nationally sought suppliers who offer quality natural ingredients, to produce freshly made, tasty seasonal foods for your health and enjoyment. We serve amazing Kokako organic coffee, the freshest of cold pressed juice and on the spot superfood smoothies! so good.
