Oso Negro Cafe is the cafe to go in Nelson, BC. I went on a Saturday morning and I swear, the whole town was here looking to get their morning coffee. There was a line up out the door.
Their interior showcases the artwork of talented local artists and artisans or outdoors in their splendid perennial garden. The space is pretty awesome.
Oso Negro was born in Nelson, BC in 1993 in a tiny space, with a tiny 1 kg Petroncini roaster. We focused on simplicity, freshly roasting our beans in small batches and selling the results as single varietals. The roasting space doubled as a cafe, and it was our pleasure to visit with customers and serve coffee to our neighbours.
They have over 20 blends of coffee beans in the cafe.
Latte is what I ordered. It was pretty strong and had more of a strong burnt taste to it.
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie was the quick bite I needed in the morning before going back to the Okanagan. We had a long drive ahead of us, so we got sugar and caffeine.
Overall, Oso Negro was a good stop, but their coffee is a bit strong and has a slightly burnt taste to it.
