“Vegetables so fresh and so rare”
Reviewed December 20, 2013 via mobile

My travels through NZ have left me desperate for salad and other veggies. How delightful to discover this eatery attached to an Italian/Spanish deli/grocery. Seven varieties of olives, for heaven's sake! Made our way through the aisles of incredible foodstuffs to the cafe where we ordered Waldorf salad, pasta carbonara, spanakopita and great coffee. Best food in Nelson in our book because it was FRESH and vegetables were involved! Hope this place continues to thrive.

“Plenty to like about this place”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Prego Mediterranean Foods recently opened cafe/espresso/bar is clearly a winner judging by the crowds they are drawing and deservedly so. Whether enjoying a morning coffee nestled on the leather lounges and catching up with the latest news from a daily paper or meeting friends for lunch it's got lots of vibe. The new menu has plenty to please at reasonable prices - we had the Portuguese fish soup and the Pork belly with truffle mash both delicious and their famous filled ciabatta rolls are still on the menu too. For something sweet I don't think you can go past the Orange/Almond Cake. Well done Mac, Claudia and a great team in the kitchen
