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.

I had a great red curry beef pie. Plenty of vegan options for those who don’t eat meat. The coffee was also good. Nice vibe, and good range of food.

Neither staff nor many customers wearing masks. Not enforcing social distancing and customers sitting at tables not takeaway as required. If you don’t want to put yourself at risk of Covid I would avoid this summer

Lovely cafe with a lovely ethos. Sadly the service has prevent me from going back. Gave this place a second chance and sadly both experiences were similar. The girl serving was rude and assumed you understood that there’s no menu, though “do you have a...menu?” seems like a perfectly reasonable question. My takeaway Long Black was served in a have here cup and when questioned a takeaway cup was slammed down next to me and a “it’s too busy”. Too busy? There were 3 other people... hardly a huge line. I wasn’t in a rush nor rude. As an ex barista, I was extremely disappointed and I shall not be returning after this repeat experience. Long blacks should not be poured into takeaways, rather made correctly in the correct vessel. What a shame because it could be so good!More

Hi, I am so sorry that you have had a bad experience at Kush Coffee. I realise that it happened in July and I should check our reviews more often but generally they are really good, so this comes as a bit of a shock....More

We called in on a Sunday morning. A good busy coffee shop with a good variety of food and had some really lovely cheese scones and great coffee. Nice relaxed atmosphere and pretty popular.

Pleasant ambience, friendly service. Interesting muesli presentation, all ok. Would have preferred a fresh squeezed orange juice rather than out of a bottle. Coffee was fine.

These guys won the Best Coffee in Nelson award and they thoroughly deserve it. It was the the best on our trip around the top of the South Island... Great vibe and decor. Fabulous.

Great spot, great coffee and great pastries. Super friendly and authentic barista and we loved the coffee and pastries. We got a cheese scone and a sweetish pastry (can't remember the exact order) but both were really good.

I must say the coffee here is exceptional. With the choice of Oaklands (A2) milk or DF, or (I assume) the usual cow, anything they produce for you is memorable. I would like to congratulate this business on a great product.

We found Kush when ready for coffee and cake after a good walk. It advertises itself as selling the best coffee in Nelson - a bit of hyperbole but their coffee was very good and went down well with a tasty cake from their selection....Soft and comfortable seats are available with good views of unusual decor and of the world passing by outside.More

I came here after arriving in Nelson and seeing that this place had great reviews on Trip advisor. Ordered a flat white and oh my gosh, it was AMAZING. So good that I ordered another one straight after. Best coffee I’ve ever tasted. Definitely go!
