They make the prettiest lattes in town. It is a different crowd than Oso and their coffee is good. In summer, you can sit outside and people watch. Give it a whirl

Stopped there for a coffee. It was great and the coffee refill only costs 1CAD. The scones are very delicious. The one with two kinds of berries costs 2.5 CAD, but it's worth it.

Well, they do have the New Yorker magazine in the rack, which is enough to pull me into any small town cafe. However, the quality of the coffee, the small but good array of food and the warmth of the owner and her staff would pull me in even if all I could browse was boring MacLean's magazine.

One of the trendy Vancouver wannabe cafes - grilled sandwiches don't quite rate the $7. price tag and although they have "wireless internet"... good luck getting it to work. But, the coffee was good.

Great coffee shop in Nelson, it was one of the smoothest tasting capps I had on my travels thru BC. The barrista's seem very well trained & its not all about the big big sizes but definitely about the consitency of taste & atmosphere....I felt like I was in europe when I stopped into John Ward. Great people watching and great display of local art. Feels a little like a gallery but has the funkiness of a euro cafe. Job well done & will always stop for a traditional capp:) Well worth checking out as one of the best coffee cafes in Nelson!
