This cafe is consistently good. I visit regulary and have never had a bad experience. It's good for veggies/vegans though a few more vegan options are always welcome! We had soup today and actually, the portions were way too big! 1/3 less would have been...More

Nexus will never stop being my safe space. Such a lovely little place with wonderful people and a happy environment. I love the drinks choices and they have lots of great food options for vegetarians and a good couple for vegans. :)
