“A Must for Foodies and Caffeine Junkies Alike!”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

My husband and I are long time patrons of Oso Negro dating back to before they moved into their current location several years ago. Right from the beginning, the coffee has been outstanding, and with the, eventual, inclusion of a light fare cafe, we have continued our love affair with Oso. The coffee is roasted on a daily basis, and is, often, hand mixed by the roasters themselves. Thus, it is, entirely, possible to have a different coffee experience every time one goes! Go ahead, be bold, try something new, and once you make your choice, don't forget to choose a little something from their baked goods/light meal choices. You won't be disappointed. Besides you can't really say you've been to Nelson if you haven't had at least ONE coffee from Oso!

“If you need a caffeine fix...here it is”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

A refreshing change from the Starbucks world. Coffee and treats with excellent service. Seating if you can find one...tends to crowd up at times.

“Nothing special”
Reviewed February 14, 2014 via mobile

Stopped in here after seeing all the good reviews. I just wasn't blown away, or even impressed. We got hot chocolates and a brownie. The prices were reasonable, $5.75 for two cocoas and a brownie. Nice building, tons of people. Service was pretty slow, and the counter girl was all business, rather than friendly.

“Great coffee in a wonderful place”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

Nelson is a great town and Oso Negro makes great coffee. We went there twice during our stay in Nelson and both times we were impressed. The coffee was fresh and tasted great. They even had quite a few gluten free treats, so it was a great experience overall!
