I’m vegetarian, had so many vegetarian options, was difficult to choose! was too hungry to have a vegetarian pie ( saw different varieties in the cabinet. must try the tomato, basil & cheese one sounds delish!) got the vege burger, it’s nothing I’ve experienced before. they brought me a huge “tower burger” had excellent beer battered portobello mushrooms, fresh salad, onion rings the chef makes from real onions! and real awesome wedges.
Couldn’t finish it all, but had very helpful friends
The coffee is the best I had in Nelson I was impressed!
Was too full for dessert!
Will be coming back very soon to try other vegetarian options.
I’ve never heard of Crusoe’s before, but a friend of mine had breakfast there and said there are many Gluten Free options in their menu, and the food is amazing.
I went there for lunch, and was shocked to find a menu that is mostly gluten free. Hostess was so lovely, she showed me every gluten free option on the list! I had the chongos, chicken strips coated with crunchy mixture, got a huge plate filled with chongos, fresh salad and fries. It was so yummy! got some house made aioli with it and oh my gosh! the best meal I had in years.
Definitely going back to eat there, it’s such a beautiful place with a sunny court and the service was great, what an amazing place. Next time i’m gonna try the Moroccan chicken & frittata! yum….
The service is super friendly. The owners are delightful and always happy to oblige in any way to make your visit the best. They are innovate and are working very hard to improve and add to their menus, and create many different dine-out options. They have many vegetarian choices, plus gluten free etc so cater to all needs.
The food is fresh tasty and very more-some!
But the new management give a whole new meaning to the word arrogant. They seemed to believe they were well above their clients little realising the table had over 120 years combined experience in restaurant management and customer service.
We used to be regulars but won’t be returning….
Went back, gave it a second chance because of its child friendly location. Definately need to do a course in customer relations and learn not to stack dishes at the tables.!
