Description: Multiple Winner of Best Cafe in Nelson. Bright, busy cafe in an historic building in central Nelson. Strong following of loyal locals but plenty to entice visitors as well. The menu changes seasonally and focuses on fresh, natural flavours that build on a number of ethnic cuisine styles. Our breakfasts have a large fan base with favourites like the Bacon & Eggs and Morrison Street's Local Breakfast staying on the menu year after year. Lunch includes Caesar Salad, Moroccan Pearl Couscous Salad and Chicken Tostada. There's plenty of fresh baking each day, a healthy kids menu and our coffee is excellent. There are lots of options for wheat, gluten & dairy sensitive people and vegetarians as well.

We enjoyed a very good breakfast and coffee. All the food was delicious and the coffee excellent. Friendly and helpful staff who were very knowledgable about ingredients and allergies. Nice outdoor seating area.

Morrison Street Cafe is a great place with a good selection of food on the menu. The price is good too and the service was nice and friendly. Sitting inside was a bit noisey but that will not stop me from going there again for lunch. They have outdoor seating wihich would be lovely on sunny day.

On the sunny day we sat outside in the well-designed side courtyard and enjoyed a lazy, relaxed brunch. A couple of days later on a wet weekend, we were inside out of the rain and it was a... More

I had a late lunch while in Nelson for a job interview. The service is excellent and the coffee is definitely up there with some of the best coffee in Wellington and Auckland. The food was nice but, i would consider it to be overpriced for what is was.
