My wife and I went here at the recommendation of some local patrons on the day of our arrival.

As other reviewers have noted, the coffee, lattes, etc as wall as their baked goods were very fresh and original. The ladies at the counter were friendly and helpful to newbies given their long lines at the door at times. We really enjoyed the outside sitting area each morning which added to the overall experience. We will visit again next time in Nelson.

Liked the assortment of coffees to choose from, wonderful to learn about each on their coffee info cards
Liked the staff knowledge and attentiveness, didn't feel rushed and was given honest info
Liked the decor, smell of fresh brewed coffee as you enter, like you stepped onto coffee island...
Liked being given a list of stores near my hometown for purchase of their coffee outside of nelson
Speckled Sky coffee blend - 100% java beans, delish!
Too bad not all coffee blends were organic.

While the coffee is delicious, the dandelion latte is amazing. All the food is delicious and there is plenty of items to look at (t-shirts, flowers, pottery, photos, people) while waiting in the line up. The atmosphere in the building and on the patio are awesome. We love Oso Negro!

While traveling through Nelson we were told about the coffee place with the cult following - "you just have to check out Oso Negro." We did, and we're glad we did. Not only is the coffee fantastic (they roast several types of coffee and we bought some), but the baked goods are very good. The garden is wonderful. What struck us was the quality of everything - the design of the building, the layout of the garden, the wood work and wrought iron work, the coffee great and the baked goods.

If you are in Nelson, you must visit Oso Negro. As you get close, you will smell the coffee, and see the gorgeous gardens. The coffee is fantastic, and the cinnamon bun was one of the best I've had ever. They have a great selection of treats and even a few light lunch options.
