A nice suprise!

The food was simple but very delicious. I loved the decor. They accomodated our group of 8 for lunch in the cute building beside the main one.

Love coming to this little cafe, I have never actually eaten there, but I definitely plan on it! It has an awesome vibe and atmosphere, I love to have tea dates here while I'm in town, the yerba mates are so delicious! The staff are awesome!

I really enjoy this restaurant and have come for lunch about 10-15 times now. The people running this place put quality ingredients over any other aspect which is refreshing in Nelson as a vast majority are serving "fresh" frozen food out of processed packaging. My wife had a kale salad, my daughter a grilled cheese and myself I had a... More

Everyone needs to experience this place, from eating inside or outside. The salads, soups and bread are the best. We ate along side the balcony, your view is a roof, which is cool really, no view, just different. Love this place

This is a perfect lunch spot in a quiet corner of the town. The food is made with care and the place is adorable and relaxed. In a town known for its restaurants, this is where many locals return on a regular basis. Bonus: There are options for almost any allergy or food diet.

Very happy to stumble across this little gem in Nelson during holidays- had a delicious breakfast on a lovely little patio. We were so impressed by the character and welcoming nature of this place. The fact that it is open 24 hours really sets it apart from the regular cafes. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Nelson!

I have had the best salad, ever. So fresh , you literally eat nature in good terms:) Nature is outstanding as well. Whole little town is great. Enjoy your salad facing the peaceful green mountains.

Different. Really good wholistic food. Neat setting...in an old Heritage house with main Alley entrance. Outdoor areas for summertime dining, on a shaded, treed little hillside.

Great menu, full of healthy, tasty offerings. Easy to repeatedly order the same thing but I always try and have something different and am never disappointed. Chai Latte is amazing and the salads are just wonderful.
