I have had two sandwiches from the cafe and they are delicious, fresh, and loaded with flavor. The coffee is great and the service fast and friendly.

If you love coffee and chocolate coated croissants, give Sidewinder a visit. Looks like the locals like it here, which is always a good sign. The staff is friendly, the room is bright, and there's wifi. Sidewinders is a gem.

Really enjoyed every coffee I’ve had from here & the food has been great. The setting works for me just remember Nelson has a flock of parking Nazis that can ruin your affordable relaxation.

Friendly staff and great choices for breakfast make this company an excellent choice. There was a line up^when opened so that tells you something about this establishment. Everyone was quickly served.

This is a great place to meet for coffee. Right on Baker Street, near the centre of town, you can sit downstairs or outdoors on the roof upstairs. I really enjoyed my soy latte when I was there last week.

Oh how I would love to tell you about what I order there but I am so regular there they know my order before I ask for it. Needless to say the service is friendly and personable. Sorry to be vague in this particular review...but my intent to to remain anonymous so that I do not get special treatment when I go any place in town. All I can do is encourage you to go there and see for you yourself.More

Sidewinders is the second place I had coffee at in Nelson. I was not disappointed. The Café Americano was perfect. As was the brownie I had (if you read my other posts about Nelson you'll know I like brownies). The staff was friendly and really...cared about their clients. Enjoy!More

The first coffee shop I went to in Nelson (of many). Good coffee, although not the best in town, and friendly service. Their best feature in my opinion is the beautiful patio on their roof. Perfect spot to relax with your favourite beverage and look...out over Baker St and the mountains.More

I was visiting a friend in Nelson. We started each morning with coffee at Sidewinders. The coffee was quite good but the rooftop patio was so nice to enjoy the good weather. There were some umbrellas on the patio. There was seating on the main...floor. The staff were friendly. There are a number of pastries available as well as a number of menu items.More

First on most minds in the morning is a quick cup of java and something you will enjoy eating. Sidewinders has the hat trick in making great service, food, and atmosphere in downtown Nelson. Whether going to work or coming off the trails this place...is where you can hop off and treat yourself to some home good food.More

Nelson has a lot of coffee shops and this one stands out above the rest. They provide excellent service, a good menu selection and a comfortable atmosphere that isn't overly crowded.

Had the pleasure of stopping here twice during my stay in Nelson. First time was a soy latte, the second an Americano. The service was great. I asked for a splash of soy milk in the Americano and they offered to steam it for me....No coffee shop has ever offered me that for a drink that otherwise doesn't use steamed milk. The coffee here is amazing. It's very smooth and delicious. It's a little on the mild side, so if you need more of that coffee kick in the taste buds, I recommend staying away from the milky drinks. Spokane residents might know what I mean when I say it reminded me a lot of Revel 77. Some of the best quality out there.More

It was super hot and we went something yummy and cold. The staff suggested a chocolate coffee Frappe. It was very tasty and gave me the boast I needed!
