All vegetarian/vegan food in a cafeteria-style setup so it's really quick to get your meal. Family-owned, kid-friendly and super delicious. I had some visiting relatives find that it was a bit 'spicy' but they've got really mainstream tastes/dining experience. My 3 year old can find things on the menu that she loves. Get a huge variety platter and share it!... More

When I want reaonable, tasty, and warming comfort food, I come to Jagannatha. Peaceful atmosphere where I can bring a book and nibble on my wonderful lunch or dinner, of a warm drink. I tend to appear often.

Have eaten lunch here several times and highly enjoy the fragrantly herbed and spiced food - good selection and outstanding soups. The wonderful warm service and quiet, clean venue adds to the overall experience.My wife introduced me to the place and we both enjoy it from time to time - separately or together - our lifestyle is to eat vegetarian...

This is one of my favourite places to eat in Nelson. The food is all vegetarian and always delicious - especially the soups. The family that runs the place is so sweet and genuine. Always a hearty meal here!

That says a lot in a town built for vegans. If you don't mind having them set up you plate as you walk down the cafeteria-style line and don't mind pouring your own water from the cooler, you'll love this place. The owners are committed to Krishna and their devotion to good, healthy food & service shows, as well.

Simple and hearty food based on east indian vegetarian cuisine, along with freshly made juices and gluten free treats. Will definitely return to sample more in future visits to Nelson!

Not being a vegetarian it's difficult to be objective but my wife will choose to eat here over my usual lunch preferences every time. The times I have tried it I've found it to be very high quality food in a quiet setting even though it's right on busy Baker Street. The food is prepared ingeniously for a unique taste... More
