Deville Cafe, Nelson, Beef Burger - 7/10

An unexpected trip to Nelson for a business meeting resulted in the unearthing of a hidden gem!!  It is highly unlikely that I would have stumbled across Deville if it had been me and my family on holiday.   My colleagues took me to lunch to their local.  And it was the local.

Deville has an unassuming entrance, off the main road.  One minute we were walking through car parks and past offices.  The next we were in a vibrant cafe, with a wonderful outdoor setting.  A bit like an oasis in a parking lot.  Not many tourists.  Not surprising as if you didn't know it was there you wouldn't find it.  It seems they like it that way - the locals that is.  Ha! I'm in on your secret Nelsonians.

On the menu board, a range of enticing items surrounded the burger.  The description contained all the right ingredients.  Lettuce, cheese, onion, tomato, pickle, Chipotle mayo.

Sensing that this cafe was above the ordinary, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to give it a go even if it was a business lunch.  I was sure my hosts would understand when I started dissecting and photographing my lunch.
