Welcome to The Little Nel

The Little Nel has fast become the favourite cafe for the local residents of Nelson Bay. We serve barista made Suspension espresso (the little roaster in Newcastle with the big following), plus a breakfast menu that utilises the best local produce to create a fresh menu that changes with the seasons. Try the uniue chilli scrambled eggs, the lovely pasionfruit pancakes or the now famous pea and zuccini fritters. 

On Thursday and Friday evenings The Little Nel is transformed into an elegant restaurant, serving modern Australian cuisine with a modern French bistro twist. 

The setting is casual, with funky music and a great leafy deck with views to the Bay. Find us at The Nelson Resort in the town centre, and we are open Tuesday to Sunday for breakfast and lunch, and Thursday and Friday for dinner.
