The best coffee that you will find anywhere in BC. Those at Oso are passionate about great coffee and friendly service. The green beans are all roasted at the Oso roastery, and blended into unique flavors by master roaster and owner Jon Meyer. Jon is also very supportive of the community, donating to many local causes, paying his staff well,... More

The best environment for having a coffee in Nelson especially when able to enjoy the outdoor area. The service is great and the treats are wonderful.

This is a Nelson landmark but the service is slow with long lines in the mornings. Coffee is good but not great.

Every variety of coffee you can imagine. OH and the paninies are the best, love the soups on cold days.

A local friend recommended we meet at Oso Negro. It was 9.15 in the morning and the cafe was packed - it's clearly a favourite with the Nelson locals. The coffee was good. We had to wait awhile. It's a casual cafe with no table service.

Excellent coffee. Would have hung around for some food if there was room to sit. The place was jammed on a Saturday morning. So glad we decided to stop in. Will be grabbing a coffee for the road from here when we leave town.
