Great veggie burgers! Travelling solo, delicious take-out is good for when you don't want fast food and you don't want to do a lengthy solo restaurant meal. Really good menu and reasonably priced

If you love garlic, then you will love The Outer Clove! Everything we are was delicious and my girlfriend still can't stop raving about the garlic salad dressing.

Did a takeout order here last week. I had the Caesar Salad and the Potato Garlic soup. Everything here has a "garlic" theme. The service was efficient and the food prepared quickly - within 5 minutes. Everything was wrapped up professionally and cleanly. My only suggestion: a little truffle oil in the potato garlic soup would really make the flavours... More

We had several recommendations for The Outer Clove Cafe, went for dinner and were disappointed in service and food. Just not what we expected at all. Food wasn't terrible, but this was our least favorite meal of our stay in Nelson.

The Outer Clove had been recommended to us by friends and didn't disappoint. Despite it's name, not all the dishes are heavy on the garlic, and if you have a doubt about the spices in the food, don't hesitate to ask the wait staff whether it can be adjusted. The quality of the dishes was great, but took a bit... More
