This is the best place to sit, relax and people watch in town. It's laid back, with beautiful gardens. If you happen to visit in fair weather, sitting outside in the garden is a must. Coffee and paninis are great.

Oso Negro is the local Nelson coffee and most varieties offered (there are many to choose from) are organic. Rich, fresh wonderful brew for the true coffee lover. And a really nice patio complete with birds in the trees.

The coffee is off-the-hook fantastic. I have finally found a few places in Vancouver (where I live) that sell the Oso Negro beans so I can enjoy their delicious coffee at home. Having said that, whenever I am in Nelson, it is my first stop. The servers are friendly, the space is warm and cozy. It definitely has a locals type of vibe. Fresh food, yummy desserts.

Makes me want to go to Nelson...right now...

Give Oso Negro a shot. They have such great staff, backyard patio, and coffee. Always a pleasure to enjoy a cup with a friend or family here.

Yes, the coffee is really good. When visiting Nelson this was my go to coffee stop, followed by a sit on the patio to read or take in the fall colours. I am an Americano coffee drinker and have to say that it was a lovely experience savouring this coffee. I have been in and out of Nelson for years and have tried many coffee shops and this one has always been consistent and good. I also bought 4 smaller bags of coffee to take back with me for friends to enjoy!
However, if you are in a rush, well the line ups are long...so be forewarned and just think that this is an indicator of how good the place is.
