East Street Cafe Bar sets itself apart by being the only vegetarian café in Nelson. Our focus is to provide affordable quality food to cater for the growing number of people that are vegetarian, vegan and gluten intolerant.
However we have as many repeat customers, local and backpackers, that purely come for to enjoy our fantastic food and atmosphere. Extra effort goes into sourcing local goods and producing the components that make up our menu from scratch. For example we make our own burger patties, hummus, mayonnaise etc.
The food, service and environment all complement each other in being professional whilst homely and caring at the same time.
Many times we hear comments such as “this is my home away from home”,
“That was the best pasta/burger I have ever have”, “if I ate like this all the time I could happily be vegetarian”
100mtres from Trafalgar St tucked away in the underground of a backpacker’s, with a sunny courtyard adds to the freshness of a new Café in Nelson. The punters like the fact it’s right in town, slightly off the main drag and there are always new people to meet.
Owner operated gives East St Vegetarian Cafe that added personal touch that other businesses can lack.
We provide a service creating great tasting vegetarian food that caters for all. See you down there :)
6 Reviews for East St Vegetarian Cafe Bar
The food is full of flavour and reasonably priced. I’m a meat eater but this is a place I would happily go to time and time again. The quesidila is a must have.

None of our regular group are vegetarian, and we ALL love the food. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed, and there are always interesting people to meet.
The decor is also intriguing and gives plenty of talking points.
I highly recommend East St to anyone, local or visitor, and it’s definitely going to be my regular spot all summer!
