Great breakfast, yummy bread under my eggs benedict. Fantastic coffee, friendly staff. Nice and close to the Saturday market. Lots to look at out of the window while eating the yummy breakfast.

If you are a cheese scone connoisseur then you need to make a visit to Yaza. Their scones are delicious. Coffees are ok and decor has been the same for a long time but the scones make up for all other deficiencies.

I visited Yaza! Cafe for the first time today and OMG, the quesadilla was the best and was definitely the highlight of my visit. It is a decent size served with salsa and sour-cream, is a good price, and very tasty. I would go back...More

Brunch, lunch all times - but the cheese scones are the most fabulous. Add an eclectic atmosphere and tasty lunch menu thats a bit different and flavoursome - love taking friends here

This place is way over-hyped. The food is bland and overpriced for what you get, and the staff seriously need lessons on how to treat customers. Their attitude towards me was very indifferent, rushed (the place wasn't even busy) and borderline contemptuous - no smile,...More

Excellent staff. Very good coffee. Yama is always busy but never flustered. The cheese scones are legendary. Other food is well done cafe food. Atmosphere is eclectic and comfortable. Always worth a stop.

First class food - everything is produced on the premises. Last visit I had seafood chowder which came with a slice of their own focacia bread. As good as you could get anywhere and better than most. Not expensive, just down to earth efficient service...More

Such yummy food with great choices, lovely staff, and the events, (not just bands) are wonderful. Reading the flyers on the wall also gives a taste of Nelson.
