After 7 years running 'La Gourmandise', a French Restaurant in central Nelson, NZ and our second baby on the way we decided to close its doors and focus on our young family. Food plays such a big part in our life's that we couldn't stay away from it for long. The pleasure we have making people happy with good food and great service is something we missed.
A year of planning and thinking while enjoying time with our lovely children, we decided to get back into the food and hospitality Industry and try something new. We found the empty space on Rutherford Street and after a short while decided it is the perfect place for our Take Away & Deli.
As part of our philosophy we are trying to be sustainable where possible with our business. Buying local products is playing a huge part in this. Therefore we are able to offer our customers products from Chia Sisters, Pete's Natural and Kombucha Bros, all located and made in Nelson. Our small but well stocked Deli offers products from Craft Pate, Little River Cheese and Thorvald Sheep Cheese, and The Sausage Press Deli Co. Keep an eye out at there is more to come.
We are proud to only use compostable packaging. From plates to cutlery, everything can go into your compost. If you have heard of the Community Compost you know where our vegetable waste is going.
