I enjoyed the food at this restaurant and the service was good. Although I found the pricing to be a little high for the type of food served, the novelty of the place and was worth a trip. Don't know that I would eat there all the time because of the cost but definitely a place to stop by if... More

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.

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.
