Great cafe atmosphere here, quite a bustling spot in the city centre. Breakfast here was really lovely. I chose the Hot Smoked Salmon for breakfast and boy it was lovely. Others had big breakfasts and poached eggs and everyone was most happy with their choices....More

Yet again Trip Advisor plays its part! Morri St Cafe featured prominently in our search for good coffee in Nelson. The first sign of a good cafe is the level of patronage - it was full and we were cheerfully asked to wait a few...More

A busy family friendly restaurant. The coffee is delicious and clearly from an excellent roaster. Loads of lovely food drifted past us and we could not resist a sweet treat too. Staff friendly and seemed to be constantly climbing over children or steering past customers...More

The coffee as always was excellent at Morrie St. We just went for coffee but couldn't resist the lemony square. Yum, yum!. Thank you Morrie St!

The decor has never looked better but unfortunately we were pretty disappointed with our lunch. The BLT was very lifeless, a stale piece of ciabatta that didn't appear to be toasted. There were sun-dried tomatoes instead of proper tomato a bit too hard oven baked...More

We've been in here twice for coffee and have got the feeling that all they were interested in was selling us lunch or breakfast and not interested if we only want coffee. Well next time we might but we would like to test the coffee...More

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.
