We are two Nelsonians who met our Wellington friends around lunchtime on Sunday. Popped in here as a bit chilly to eat the market food. Service was good but took quite a while to get our meals. It was worth waiting for though. I had...More

Nice coffee with a view of the boats and harbour. Did not eat but nice vibe inside. Would recommend.

There was no one else there at around 10am Tuesday morning. We wanted something for breaky. Walked in and asked if they were open. Server/owerner/manager - who knows...was so cold and monosyllabic. Breakfast arrived and was just bland and slapped together. Might be a different...More

This was quite possibly the blandest cafe food we've encountered since the mid-1980's. Soulless, flavourless, and proudly unimaginative. If you have guests that maybe you don't want to see that often? Bring 'em here. Service was friendly, pricing was excessive. "Chalk" gives you a fair...More

Friendly service. Delicious food. Good location with nice view of marina but shame the sun was not shining.
