Easter buffet Brunch!
Great selection of food and good ambiance
My family and I met there for Easter brunch. We were able to make a reservation, so there was no waiting. The main dining room was full, and at first, we thought there would be a wait, however, they let us to an very open, and airy room on the second floor. The room looked like a special events room, and the music was was so lively, I danced with my three year old granddaughter! The food was excellent, and they were even able to accommodate my granddaughters numerous allergies. We took advantage of the buffet with a delightful Caribbean lasagna, where the noodles were replaced by plantains, between the meat and cheese!
I’ve been here several times and just wanted to finally leave a review. I’m big on customer service and this restaurant makes me feel welcomed. It’s inviting the people are very friendly and the food is authentic and amazing. I visit often for their Sunday Brunch. And I can’t get enough of it. I love that I can byob. And just have a good laugh with family and friends when we get together.
Amazing food and friendly staff
I came here with my daughter and girlfriend for brunch. I had already visited Nellie's before but I love this place. The food is amazing and delicious. The staff is always friendly and the atmosphere was as if you were visiting a cafe in Puerto Rico. Always a delight eating here.
Great bargain $16 or $17 for the the buffet and it’s BYOB!!!! Only thing I would ask for the waiter or waitress to come around and make sure my coffee is filled it takes away from the great bargain when you can’t get your caffeine. Other than that great place.
This was out first time at Nellie’s. He food was flavorful and a nice deviation from standard breakfast options.
It was very delicious and I loved the Sunday Brunch, BYOB all you can eat !!
Because it sucked. The food was crap. The ambiance was horrible.
Great food, excellent service and good value on the weekend brunch buffet. Do not pass up a serving of coconut oatmeal or you may regret it. BTW, coffee and fresh squeezed orange juice is added bonus.
Loved everything about it. Picked this place for a different experience.. I am so glad I did ...I love trying new thing... I am from out of town .
The staff was very friendly and attentive. The brunch buffet was excellent. Everyone needs to try the cinnamon oatmeal! I really liked the fact that the chef was there to make ALL eggs and omelets to order - no mountains of scrambled eggs that have been sitting out for who knows how long. I would absolutely make brunch at Nellie's a regular weekend event.
I was meeting a friend for brunch early Sunday morning. Division St was blocked off due to a festival, so we had to walk about 4 blocks in order to park. We had made a reservation and called to inform the host that we would be late due to parking. Normally, there is parking on Division St.
The staff at Nellie's was very friendly and accommodating. It's BYOB, so we bought a bottle of Champagne with us. The waitress opened the bottle, brought glasses, and put the bottle on ice. I was quite impressed. There was no corkage fee either. I've paid corkage fees and had to ask several times for an ice bucket.
We had the buffet. The best item was the omelette bar. I ordered an egg white veggie omelette and my friend ordered a regular veggie. They were the best omelettes that we had ever had. The cook was very friendly and even suggested that we come back for a second one.
The second best item was the flan. It was creamy and light. It was cut into very small pieces, so I didn't feel so guilty after the full plate from the buffet. My friend would argue that it was the Puerto Rican oatmeal. However, I passed as I don't like coconut.
The price of the buffet was also very reasonable. $16 per adult.
Great experience good food and service. I will come again
Nellie's is a great neighborhood joint. The atmosphere is nothing fancy, but the food is phenomenal and the service is friendly and attentive. It was advertised as a great place for brunch, but note there isn't a buffet. The food was delicious -- the coconut oatmeal is especially tasty and surprisingly filling. Overall, it's a very pleasant experience with great food.
Everything was delicious. The coconut oatmeal was amazing! Very intimate and authentic spot.
More spacious on the inside than I thought it would be. I really enjoyed the weekend brunch buffet and service and quick and polite.
The food, service and value (check out their amazingly affordable prices) at Nellie' s were fantastic! The place is refreshingly unpretentious and most pleasurable. My partner and I had never been before but we will be back for the coconut oatmeal and the Puerto Rico lasagna. The chef who prepared our made-to-order omelets was extremely helpful and pleasant in explaining all of the unique items that were available. None of the food was spicy but I loved the fact that you could add some hot sauce as desired. There were 3-4 different hot sauces on every table and I preferred what appeared to be Nellie's own creation. I highly recommend Nellie's for anyone seeking an ethnic and enjoyable dining experience!!!
Mothers Day brunch staff was poorly trained. We were never greeted and never got drink orders taken. No one asked if we needed anything, but of course 20% gratuity was added to our tab of 9 people. I could tell the omelet cook was being overworked because line was so long, the rest of the plate got cold waiting for it, but I have no idea who got that $60 gratuity because no one served or helped us.
Cindy the owner came by and made us all feel so welcome. The brunch was bomb. The pastelon was soooo good
