“Relaxed atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Great venue with a casual atmosphere serving sensational strong coffee blends. Great breakfasts were served with a short wait as this is a very popular venue. Would definitely return again.

“Great breakfast with plenty of choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

Had a great Breaky here. Food came out quickly and the portion was huge. Coffee was strong but they offered extra milk if it was too strong. Set us up for a good day

“Great Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

For a breakfast treat, Little Nels will not disappoint, especially if you get there early.
On a rainy morning, we were seated immediately, and presented with a comprehensive breakfast menu, that also came with a specials menu. Eggs benedict, and the Herbed mushrooms were our mains, with a kids pancakes as well. All meals were really tasty, well presented, and I especially enjoyed the grilled tomato on the side. A great breakfast ambassador for Nelson Bay, our family would highly recommend a visit - keep up the great service and food.
