Breakfast bun is a tasty filling bargain. Coffee is good. Pleasant setup and decor. I love seeing the friendly locals catch up here. Lovely vibe.

I came here wanting a London Fog and even though it wasn't on the menu, they helped me out and made one anyway. It's a super fun atmosphere with people from all walks of life hanging out there. I can definitely understand why all the locals love it so much

The coffee, food and service are great but it's always a gong show of circus acts. Sometimes it's difficult to differentiate whether there's a lineup for coffee or to collect social benefits.

The coffee is roasted fresh just a few blocks away. Do yourself a favour and order the mountain bars. I bought some coffee to take home and my family has been enjoying it.

We had our daily breakfast here and really enjoyed the granola, sandwiches, macaroons and delicious muffins. For coffee lovers this is the right place as they roast the coffee on their own every day. The coffee tastes like this - perfect. Further, we loved the easy atmosphere. Great place to get the day started!

Coffee and baking has always been delicious but just tried their breakfast sandwiches and have a new favourite. One downfall it is often busy so can never count on being able to find a seat, so if you are not grabbing things to go, find a spot first.

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.
