“Charming coffee shop on the corner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2012

Cool atmosphere with a nice view of Ward and Baker Street. The aroma from the organic coffee drifted out onto the street and drew us in. The setting area was clean and comfortable. I was delighted to see some raw food treats offered along with traditional pastries. The coffee was served in charming porcelain cups.

John Ward's is always a regular stop in Nelson. I love their lattes and their location lends itself to people watching
