Our Fine Local Food
No stay in Nelson would be complete without sampling the region’s superb produce, from farm fresh berries to the world famous New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. That’s why delicious food is a big part of the Muritai Manor experience.
You will wake to a freshly-made, home-cooked breakfast to really set you up for the day. Your breakfast is prepared with seasonal local ingredients, sourced by Julia from the renowned Nelson Markets, orchards and our own garden.
As well as fruit juices, cereals, speciality coffee and a selection of teas, we have a continental breakfast selection which takes advantage of local produce and home-grown delights: Our fruit trees and bee hive in the garden mean we can serve our own honey and scrumptious poached plums. Julia also enjoys making her own delicious home-baked bread, preserves, cheese, yoghurt and granola.
Of course, we also offer a cooked breakfast - the choice varies from day-to-day and might include traditional bacon, egg and tomatoes, local bratwurst sausage, frittata, blueberry pancakes and orange French toast. We have a small flock of traditional breeds of hens, which are free to roam the gardens during the day and provide the delicious fresh eggs we serve at breakfast.
Breakfast is usually served in our light and airy guest dining room, overlooking the pool and hills beyond. However, if you’d like to make an early start for a day out in our region, then don’t worry you need not miss out. We are happy to prepare a picnic breakfast for you to take with you, so you can enjoy Julia’s culinary delights on the go. There is no extra charge for this service, all we ask is that you let us know in advance that you would like this done for you.
If you have any special requests or dietary needs, please let us know and we shall do our best to accommodate these.
