Restaurant & Dining

On-site at Hotel Nelson is The Little Nel cafe, which is open for breakfast and lunch, and has fast become the favorite cafe for the local residents of Nelson Bay. For dinner there are many great restaurants just a short stroll away. Our friendly reception staff are happy to assist with recommendations and bookings.

The Little Nel

The Little Nel is open every day, serving barista made coffee from Pablo & Rusty, plus a super cafe breakfast and lunch menu that is now a favourite with Nelson Bay locals. The Little Nel is also rated number 1 (most of the time!) on Tripadvisor out of 200+ restaurants in the Port Stephens region.

Try our buttermilk pancakes with passion fruit curd, the amazing zuchini & pea fritters or our now famous eggs benedict.
