Good food, great coffee, fair prices. Sevice was good and friendly, not too far out of town (5 mins walk from centre) What else is needed?

My partner and I came on a busy Thursday morning between 10-10:30am. It took us about 10min to get a table as the place was packed out. Staff were friendly and quick on their service.

Even though it was busy, our breakky took over 50min to receive. A couple who came in about 5min after us receive their meal within 25min, it was disappointing to see that. We usually don't complain or get agro on staff but it was nice to see staff being attentive and comped us drinks for the long wait.

Breakfast was yummy, staff service was excellent and friendly, though waiting on food took too long even for a busy restaurant.

As a previous Restaurant Judge I would rate The Little Nel as really great and very worthy of a visit. No I would say a compulsory visit. The Dukkah Poached Eggs is mouth watering.

Went here for breakfast and as a local of Nelson bay I am surprised that I didn't find out about this place earlier.
The meals were very reasonably priced and were delicious.
Staff were friendly and very quick to order and serve our food and drinks.
I highly recommend trying this cafe!
