If you visit Nelson this is a must! I had the salmon gravlax which was outstanding. The tea perfect. But the service quite unexpected! Our server Laura was so wonderful, I was taken aback by her hospitality. She is a superstar!!!! I only wish I owned a cafe and could have her on my team. The food is only half of the experience and with Laura any expectations were far exceeded!! Will definitely be back :)

Went here for my nieces engagement who was visiting from Oz. What a great experience. The high tea was great topped off with a bottle of bubbles. So relaxing. Great location

I visited Melrose with several friends for afternoon tea. The service was extraordinarily slow considering there were only a few other tables there. Also I had to ask for the table to be cleaned. The food when it came was beautifully presented. A lovely spot but a bit off the boil.
