We used to dine here when it was the old Morrison Street Cafe. The place was known for its signature breakfast dishes. We didn’t realise there had been a change in ownership since those days (having lived away from Nelson for some years now). The...More

Hubby and I enjoyed a peaceful brunch this morning at Morri St Cafe. I enjoyed the range of food on offer, and appreciated the efforts made to source local goods, whole foods, etc. I had the Buckwheat Crepes which had a great balance of flavour...More

My husband and I had one of our favorite meals in New Zealand here. We each got a different salad and they were both delicious and so fresh. The kumara salad was especially flavorful. The lemonade was also very good (almost tasted like a mojito!)....More

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.
