Description: Multiple Winner of Best Cafe in Nelson. Bright, busy cafe in an historic building in central Nelson. Strong following of loyal locals but plenty to entice visitors as well. The menu changes seasonally and focuses on fresh, natural flavours that build on a number of ethnic cuisine styles. Our breakfasts have a large fan base with favourites like the Bacon & Eggs and our Pancakes staying on the menu year after year. Lunch includes fresh Salad Bowls, tasty Chicken Satay and the ever popular Pad Thai. There's plenty of fresh baking each day, a healthy kids menu and our coffee is excellent. There are lots of options for wheat, gluten & dairy sensitive people and vegetarians as well.

Nothing too much trouble - best eggs benny I've had in ages and it included the spinach - then choice of bacon, salmon, ham or mushroom. Excellent hollandaise. Good sized portion. Kids had bagels (and half of my bacon...) the cream cheese was amazing, and the raspberry jam too. Coffee was delicious - double-shot long black hit the spot nicely. Totally and utterly recommend it.

Went for breakfast. Great choice, tastes and good quantities - 2 of the guys couldn't eat it all!! Coffees and teas were spot on. Very friendly and helpful staff.

We went for lunch and I ordered the Middle Eastern Chicken Salad which was soooooooooo delicious. We liked lunch so much we went back for breakfast the next day where I ordered the wholemeal pancakes which were pretty darn good and very filling. On the third day we tried to go somewhere else for breakfast, but we decided that Morrisons had the best menu, so I went back for their bircher muesli which was quite nice. Best discovery was their Hot Turkish Apple Tea!!! The staff were so nice and friendly. Will go back again definitely.

Not a great choice of food. Decor seemed a bit tired and scruffy. They seemed to be short staffed on the Saturday that we visited.

Sorry to hear your experience at Morrison Street Cafe wasn't so great. We are about to release our new summer menu this week, so maybe come and try one of the new dishes off the menu. We hope you have a better experience next time.
