On-site at The Nelson is The Little Nel cafe, which is now open for breakfast and lunch, and has fast become the favourite cafe for the local residents of Nelson Bay. For dinner there are many great restaurants just a short stroll away. Our friendly reception staff are happy to assist with recommendations and bookings.
The Little Nel is open every day, serving barista made Suspension espresso (the little roaster in Newcastle with a huge following), plus a super cafe breakfast and lunch menu that is now a favourite with Nelson Bay locals. Try our herbed mushrooms with fetta on sourdough, the amazing zuchini fritters or our now famous eggs benedict.
We recommend Sandpipers Restaurant to our guests, which is a 2 minute walk from the hotel. Good quality modern Austraian cuisine with some great seafood options.
The Seabreeze Hotel is next door, and offers pub bistro food.
Mod Thai is a great option for casual take-away, and there are plenty of fish and chips outlets to walk to!
Feel like a night in? The bistro at the Seabreeze hotel (next door to The Nelson) deliver good reliable pub food to your room for dinner from 6-8pm daily.
