Founders Café is located in the picturesque Founders Heritage Park in Nelson.

We offer local award winning craft beer and cider straight from the tap. Founders Café offers home-style food, quality barista-made coffee, daily baking and friendly service.

Currently we offer a packed full cabinet on weekdays and weekends. This includes croissants, scones, sandwiches and hand cut fries.
