Great vege wraps!

Lovely café - very busy. Great to sit outside on a sunny day. There are plenty of food options and a great food cabinet filled with fresh salads, wraps etc. I love the vegetarian wraps with sour cream and sweet chilli sauce . . .yum!!

when I first came to Ashburton I went here three times and the food and service was really nice. The service has remained good but I have had two breakfasts there in the last few months and both were really disappointing. They had " bubble and squeak " on the breakfast and it was disgusting. Ug. I gave this place... More

A nice place to have a quiet lunch with plenty of seating and good food options. Enjoy dining here when it is important there is not too much noise from other people eating there. Nice outdoor dining area for the good weather.

We had a lovely brunch here sitting outside on a sunny day. The place was packed and we were left waiting for quite a long time simply for our water and well over an hour for our dishes. However there is a lot of good options to choose from on the menu and the owners and staff there are lovely.... More

This Cafe must be very popular, as it was very busy, and we had to wait for a table. No problem with that. The cafe is in a very nice setting, the service and the food was all very good. All in all, a nice experience.

A comfortable relaxing place which has helped it's little shopping centre (ash fords) pick up a bit I would say. Service was lovely as was the food and coffee. Were great in helping us with our 'difficult on the day'7year old!! Very glad to find this treasure as we really miss good coffee when away from home. A great place... More

Nosh is a convenient stop for people travelling through Ash-vegus. The food is nice and coffee hit the spot. On this occasion I found the staff a little disorganised. In an odd twist, there were an inordinate number of house flies in the cafe and we found ourselves swatting at them to keep them off our food. To be clear,... More

The food selection did not have a large enough variety. Most meals on menu sold out, so left with only a few options after standing in a long line waiting to be served. Obviously a very popular place for lunch, so get in early or miss the main meals. The food served was okay. The gift shop made up for... More

This place is always busy! I've been for lunch quite a few times as there is a good selection of food. The service is good but lacks a bit when busy. It's my go-to place for lunch in town.

I have been there three times now. The first time the waitress was very good. The food was good and seemed fresh. Our two other visits were very disheartening. Their selection of baked goods has not changed in the three week period we visited. We also were not served at our table since our first visit. I certainly don't like... More
