Crusoes Cafe internal view March 2019

We are in the process of changing the decor at Crusoes and 

although it will not happen overnight it is a priority.

We want to improve the 

childrens playground and provide seating out the front on the grassed area.


Simple food made well and presented beautifully

Crusoe’s Cafe is a comfortable, inviting cafe with table service. The whole layout from interior old cottage to outdoor garden seating surrounded with trees and herb beds is relaxing and inviting. 

Our food is hearty, flavourful and comforting. Our chef has 25 years of culinary experience including time at The Boatshed & Tozetti's here in Nelson and has now created a new menu for us starting this summer of 2019. Food is sourced locally where possible and there are many options for food and dietary preferences. We will be updating our menu seasonally to please keep an eye on our webpage.

If you have any food restrictions we'll tailor your meal to meet your needs.
