Went twice in two days as coffee was excellent and food yummy. Recommend the tomato soup. Large and small tables so works well for large groups. Next time I'm in Ashburton it will be my lunch spot.

We had breakfast here one morning and it was amazing! My fiancé had the eggs Benedict, which was served on a large potato hash, I had the ricotta hot cakes. Place was quiet, service was excellent, food arrived quickly and the coffee was hot! Thankyou!

This cafe has become our favourite place to stop at between Dunedin and Christchurch! It is consistently good and the setting is very relaxing. We had the steak pie which was yummy and the corn stack which was also delicious.

With a group of four. When booking the staff at Nosh advised that they had a big group booked for 12.30pm so we booked for twelve. Good quick service everyone in the group enjoyed their meal. Recommend this place for lunch.

On our short visit to Ashburton we went to Nosh for brunch 3 days in row because we were so impressed after our first experience. The boys have had many a cafe big breakfast in their time and Nosh's breakfast exceeds all others. All ingredients...More
