The Little Nel

From humble beginnings, The Little Nel has grown into the favourite haunt for Bay locals and visitors alike. We all share a passion for great food and coffee and take pride in doing things properly, with just about everything leaving the kitchen made in-house and from scratch. Our menu changes as regularly as the seasons (often more) and samples the best local and interstate produce we can find. We love what we do, and it shows.
