When an old friend from Nelson suggested brunch at DeVilles, I knew that it wouldn’t just be because it was dog-friendly. Pup in tow, we lined up in the already growing queue to place our orders. Fortunately DeVilles is massive; with a huge outdoor seating area it would be an absolute hit during the summer (apparently there is also live music). There were plenty of options to choose from, as well as a number of daily specials written up on the board inside. We ended up opting for what came recommended – my meal above was absolutely gigantic and there was absolutely no way that I was going to finish it (rookie mistake, given that we were headed to the local markets next!). Definitely a great spot on a sunny day, not sure that it would be my first pick if it was chilly.
