If you're going to have a coffee in Nelson then don't pass this place up. The staff is as great as their coffee. I also had a brownie and loved every bite. The setting is very nice. Enoy!

Great coffee and a very nice setting! Good breakfast food to eat in or take out. We go there every day when we're in Nelson and take a few pounds of coffee home with us.

My hubby had coffee and I had the seasonal hot apple juice on the patio today at this beautiful little coffee place. Both beverages deliver what they promise but aren't outstanding or awe inspiring in any way - they're good, not great. We also had...More
