Something for everyone

The location is handy for those quick 'first coffee of the day' orders or later, a pleasant catch-up time with friends. It's a busy café and parking can be tight at times so it pays to go over to the Council car park if you want to stay for a while.There's a large bench style table inside which is... read more

We stopped at Zumo in our way to Abel Tasman this morning since they were voted the best cafe in Nelson. We had a simple order of two chai teas and two pies. They brought out the chais fairly quickly, and ten minutes later we had to go back to the counter as they total forgot our pies. Kind of... More

This is such a nice place with a selection of coffee beans you can select from and really nice staff but I take issue with having to drink my coffee from a take away paper cup while sitting at the venue. New Zealand has become such a throw away society but this place does not need to be. Would come... More

Hi Justin R, Thank you for writing in and providing this opportunity to communicate both my thoughts and actions regarding the environment. Firstly, a ceramic cup should be available if you request one. I had special ZUMO cups made. We sell two types of keep cups. I personally have used my own coffee cup for well over a decade. I...

It' had become colder outside and it was raining too as I was passing Zumos. not to mention it was lunch time as well. I had a lovely chicken pie and my usual coffee. Lovely service as usual. Looking around, there are groups of kids chatting together as well as parents with kids, and lots of single people having lunch,... More

I usually meet up with friends here but I sometimes go by myself. I love the environment as there is always some where to sit and having the communal tables means as a solo drinker I can always find somewhere to sit. No one hurries you and I often sit and wait for friends before ordering. It has free wifi,... More

Been coming here most mornings whilst on holiday here in Nelson. Friendly staff, rapid service and - of course - excellent coffee. There's a whole range of blends to choose from to suit most tastes (my pick is Zumo-Three, strong and smooth with a hint of chocolatey sweetness). Not really a café as such with just a few food choices... More

Large coffee place that roasts and grinds it's own (very good) coffee. Lots to choose from whether to drink in or to take home to make your own. Service was average.

This is the roastery and café to go to in Nelson to obtain the most flavoursome and intense coffee beans and coffees. The café itself has a not unusual NZ industrial grunge feel to it - appropriate for savouring a good strong coffee. Highly recommended!
