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
