“Hooked from the first sip!”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

Nelsons' secret coffee paradise! Oso Negro was recommended to me as "THE" place to go for a coffee. I was impressed the moment I laid eyes on the blissful garden surroundings but then add the helpful and personable staff with the caramel macchiato coffee as the icing on the cake and this is my heaven on earth! However, it didn't end there. I like to road cycle and doesn't Oso Negro roast a coffee blend called "The Road Rider" with a drawing of a girl riding her bike pictured on the front of the bag. I purchased a 1lb bag. Delicious - I actually look forward to my cup of coffee, it is delicious! I'm almost out and now I'm suffering. I live in Prince George but just discovered they do mail orders! Thank you thank you thank you!

“A must visit in Nelson”
Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

Don't look further when you are looking for a coffee place in Nelson. It lives up to its reputation, easily. Sitting in the sun on the patio, sipping a strong espresso and soaking up the atmosphere. What more does one need to charge the battery?

“Fantastic coffee shop...”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Don't miss it! The selection of drinks and snacks was fantastic. But the atmosphere is what you really go for... Don't forget to visit the patio.

“outstanding coffee and ambience”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Oso Negro is still the place to go for coffee and ambience. Even have coffee ice-cubes for iced coffees. Has an excellent local reputation too.

“Great coffee spot!”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

I love this place! Great coffee, yummy baked goods, and a very nice atmosphere although it always seems to be packed because it is a local and tourist favourite! Worth checking out for sure. It is definitely a Nelson spot to come back to....
