Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Visited here for breakfast before flying out of Nelson. We sat outside as the weather was beautiful. Food was great and good value for money. We were given a generous amount of salmon with the salmon eggs Benedict which was appreciated. Great coffee and great...location. Very accessible with plenty of parking at the mall.More

Waited 15 mins for an item that would of taken what 5-7 mins to make. Asked where it is and wasn’t given very friendly reply. The chef made the point to deliver it in person when there was ample wait staff. Made me feel that...something not very pleasant or was done to my food. If I become ill I certainly will know why. Btw cafe was very quiet hence my query for the long wait.More

Rude, front of house lady, who seemed to enjoy being bossy...did not come to take the order after telling us she would. We used to come often for Brunch but will change our spot now.

We enjoyed our breakfasts here and found it very reasonably priced particularly for the size of the food portions. Best hollandaise (with eggs benedict) I've had in a long time. My large coffee was a medium by usual standards (I have coffee out very regularly...so feel qualified to make that judgement), but otherwise good value.More

I am so pleased we chose this Cafe even though it was extremely busy. I had the French toast which was yummy. The coffee (trim latte) was in a large mug & made perfectly. Glenda, I can see why your Cafe is so popular, great...job!More

Nothing to write home about. Would go again if I had to. Scone was solid without being melt in your mouth. Coffee was solid without making me want another. Setting was average and felt unclean. Service was nothing special
