What a great little gem! I fell in love with the place the minute I stepped inside!
It's a feel good place, decorated with taste, great music, friendly staff.
The menu offers a great selection and the food sounded so good that we didn't know what to get!
As we were a table of 4 we decided to each take something different and share ( or not ! :)
We were all very pleased with the food, it was delicious!!!
I hope to go back someday!
Thanks to the owner for this amazing time and diner

When travelling in NZ recently we found veggie food was'nt that great but this place was fantastic. The food was imaginative and delicious. We were with family who are big meat eaters but they were very impressed as well. Staff were funny and friendly and we even had some live music.

Classically 'Bohemian' student type cafe in central Nelson, great vegetarian food and local beers.
Very good value. Go early though, it does get very full.

It's a great restaurant with very nice decoration and atmosphere, great music, the staff is nice and most important the food is delicious! Really affordable prices, original meals with loads of different options! I have a few friends who love it and go very often and who aren't even vegetarians! It's just too good :) My favorite ones are the lasagna and the polenta pizza.. and don't miss their chunky chips!

The food was pretty good, but ask them to recommend something for you. The meat balls were to die for. I also loved the design of the place and the menus made of old records covers.
