All Seasons Cafe in Nelson BC is a restaurant for local and tourists to dine. Hidden in an alley off the main roads is where you will find the restaurant. They have a seasonal menu derived from the best of the area’s local ingredients. Also, the food and wine are carefully prepared and served in a friendly atmosphere at a relaxed pace to customers.

The cafe opened its door in 1995 on a hunch that this cultured and notorious little mountain town would welcome a neighbourhood bistro serving modern food with a savvy little wine list. We came here on a Friday and it was quote busy.

Complimentary bread arrived at the table with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Nice crust on the bread and very fluffy inside.

Seared Atlantic Scallops ($15) has green peas, chorizo sausage and chevre smashed potato, black pepper and creme fraiche. The scallops were cooked perfectly with a nice sear on each side. The smashed potatoes didn’t seem to pair well with the scallops.

Halibut Cheeks ($29) has a pomme croquette, roasted carrots, shallot herb and saffron beurre blanc. Tasted ok, but it was missing a bit more acidity to balance out the dish.

Mushroom Risotto ($23) has locally foraged and gourmet mushroom blend, arborio rice, roasted roma tomatoes caramelized red onion and fennel, fine herbs, parmesan curls and a white truffle oil finish. M thought this was decent, but nothing too special.

Overall, the food was decent but it was a bit pricey for what you get. The service could have been better as we felt a bit unwelcome here and it was very slow getting our order and paying for the bill. M and I are pretty laid back when it comes to service, but this place did bother us.
