This is us

Picture a gorgeous cottage at the end of a no exit road 100 metres from a beautiful beach... (we're not talking miles of golden sand and super yachts, we're talking unspoiled, clear turquoise water, smooth boulders and golden sand at the far end)... All of this is only 20 minutes from the center of Nelson City.

Cable Bay Cafe is a destination. We are in no way a restaurant, instead we like to be seen as a place you'd go to if you were going to a friends place for lunch - our little piece of paradise becomes yours.

Our menu reflects this philosophy - none of us are chefs, instead we are passionate home cooks and 'foodies'. Our daily creations and home baking reflect our love for food, and we use fresh local ingredients and produce.

Whether you are after a perfect coffee roasted locally by sublime and a fresh scone, or a glass of wine from the Brightwater vineyard and a bowl of fries we can cater for both. Bookings are essential during the busy summer months, especially on a Sunday. Due to the increasing popularity of the area we can get very busy so we do advise that we can only try our best not to disappoint if we are flat out - if you are in a rush or have a deadline please let us know. Or better still, come out and see us mid week and enjoy Cable Bay at Cable Bay speed.

We are open Wednesday - Sunday 10am - 4pm during the high summer and close over the winter months. We are open for private functions both small and large outside these hours and welcome inquiries.
