Welcome to Café Nest

café Fine food, coffee & wine brought to you with love.


Nest is a gathering place for locals and visitors alike; an opportunity to enjoy great coffee, even better food, read to your heart’s content, ponder life’s mysteries, be inspired (or amused) by the local colour and to ultimately be uplifted. As a licensed café we love to create delicious good-looking dishes and craft our own cakes and treats, all while showcasing the best produce our region has on offer, including world class wines and cider.

*Nest holds no responsibility for overindulgence

  • Coffee


    A good day can be better with coffee. If it's good. A bad coffee makes a bad day worse and a good day a little awful. For some at least. (it's ok we aren't totally obsessed we like other beverages too and the joys of life without) Alas, we have some coffee news to share...

    Late Summer Flavours

    I was quoted long ago to have said 'It's all about the food'. It was likely someone else's original phrase however it was then quoted back to me at almost every gathering of our friends and family.
    Well, now it really is all about the food at Nest.
