La Gourmandise is an amazing restaurant. The crêpes and galettes are perfect. The variety is very good. Everyone could find something on their menu !

Terrible service! what professional establishment forgets a whole table of orders? On a kids birthday? And let's them sit there for over an hour waiting on food that's not coming? Then stands there behind the counter holding a baby saying "sorry" but doesn't sound sincere? Way to RUIN a 10 year olds choice of celebration venue:( I rant about this... More

We went here by accident and ended up with the most memorable meal we ate in Nelson. The staff were charming and the cost was surprisingly reasonable. We will definitely be back.

I love my galettes & was not disappointed with the special. Coffee is good. It's so hard to find good value these days, we are lucky to have this option in Nelson. Had lunch with my boyfriend, looking forward to returning for dinner & drinks with some girlfriends!

There are daily specials according to what's in season (e.g dishes with fresh figs or fresh asparagus etc). The food is very authentic - just... More

This lovely wee French café in nelson is a real find! It offers a extensive menu of French gallettes and crepes which makes for a lovely light and fresh change from the "big kiwi style breakfast" or a wonderful lunch. They also open for a full dinner menu but my two visits have been for breakfast and lunch. Gallettes were... More
