“Nice Lunch Cafe”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Nice atmosphere here, with covered out door dining. Good coffee and great food which is all freshly prepared. Very busy in the lunch hour so I recommend you go a little early or later after the lunch crowd if you're in no hurry.

“Child-friendly cafe in central Nelson”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

The food and coffee are delicious and its a great place to go with young kids - there's a large gated outdoor area for seating and the staff are friendly. Always lots of yummy counter food.

“Fantastic food and atmosphere, pity about the service.”
Reviewed March 9, 2014 via mobile

Visiting family in Nelson we stopped by here for lunch by recommendation. All orders are placed over the counter and first impressions were terrible: the woman who served us was rude, abrupt and abrasive. Enough that if our friend had not already ordered we would have promptly turned around and left.

Luckily the food was quick to arrive and absolutely delicious. All plates were cleaned and we left with very full bellies.

“Wonderful Oasis in Nelson”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

What a wonderful place, location, surrounded courtyard to add to the ambience. Always great food served here, imaginative menu, all cooked with local ingredients. Staff are helpful and friendly, always with a ready smile. Met some great people here, good for meals all day with entertainment on some Friday evenings.

Highly recommend to anyone staying or passing through Nelson. More people should know about Deville.

We will come back to NZ just to visit Deville !
