Friendly and efficient service in this centrally located cafe. Good range of lunchtime options, including freshly made sandwiches and pies. Warning if you sit outside, watch out for the voracious seagulls!

Great coffee, here (Allpress), as well as friendly service. The food is also worth tucking-into, with the bacon butty special absolutely loaded with bacon! Other dishes our group ordered were also very tasty.

I had the almond meringue and chai tea on almond milk for afternoon tea. Both were very good. Service was good despite the poor barista looking overworked. Inside and outside seating available. 1/2 hour of wifi free.

Food was really good but the service let them down. Since when do places in Nelson charge more to pay by credit card? I think it is a poor business decision as it is not common practice in Nelson.

We enjoyed our Yello Cafe coffee & sandwiches. Since they were to go, next time we'd ask that the bread be toasted, since they fell apart a wee bit when we ate them away from the premise.
