We go to Westport often, when we do I always get 2 Marshmellow slices to take home (Nelson) with me from Gibbys. It is soooo yummy no one in Nelson do not have it the the same.

$2.00 to charge a cell phone TWO BUCK!! A mark up that event mafia drug dealer would be impresses with. The numbe of electrons drawn from the national grid and charged would be infinitesimal. This is all about squeezing stuck travellors.

Two of us called in for lunch. One had fish and chips,the other all day breakfast. Both meals were served quickly, both top quality. Coffee was the best we had on our holiday.Lots of locals calling in so that is a good sign.

We came here specially so we could have a whitebait sandwich (which we've had before) but they didn't have any. Still we had some tasty sandwiches

Gibby's is like a truck stop in the middle of town. Very busy but with good staff who seem to work at great speed. While we were there the place just kept pumping out food and drinks and everybody seemed quite happy. I do think...that this may be the most popular cafe in town. RecommendedMore
