This had organic and local food options mixed with some non-organic options. The staff is quite friendly and nice and on kootenay time so do not expect to be served right away, every time you go. The decor is eclectic, comforting, and bit random, with large plants, nice tiling, mismatched chairs and tables and a cozy fireplace in the winter.... More

Delicious Indian inspired cusine. The plates come with a variety of choices which look like they change by the day. Prices are reasonable. Jagannatha has a mellow atmosphere and free wifi.

Friendly service, and delicious food. The menu is ever changing types of fillings and dahl. You can taste the love that goes into creating the dishes.

The food is great guys and prices are very reasonable and the kitchen is clean (I always check). The odd combination of what looks like left over hotel furniture, however, is a bit of a mismatch and kills the vibe a bit. A update in decor is due here if it's in your budget. It'll bring more customers trust me,... More

Food took forever, was way to expensive for waffles and coffee, and it was hard and tasted like cardboard. This is why some people hate this kind of food.

Hello Wendy, We apologize if the food took a long time to make, we do our best to serve our customers in a timely manner. As for the price, we use quality organic ingredients, locally sourced when possible, and I do my best to keep our prices affordable. It sounds like the waffles were overcooked, I will be sure to...

I'd be a regular if this was in my hometown. Had the radha special (choice of 2 dahl, choice of 3 rice, cauliflower/potato/pea or squash/tofu, choice of 3 chutneys, kofka and a salad for &12.99. I also had a in house kombucha for $4.99. It was satisfying, filling, tasty and nutritious.

Hello Lola, thank you for the wonderful review! Unfortunately we can't take credit for the kombucha, that is made by my friend Lavinia at Kootenay Kombucha. Check her out online for places to refill growlers! More

I've eaten here every time I visit Nelson and completely love this place. The food is consistently fresh and spiced perfectly. When you eat their food it feels like every bite is filled with healthy nutrition and vitality. I always leave feeling happy and very satiated.

If we lived here we would become regulars of this place. The service is cafeteria style, but the food is very tasty and the value is very good. We were pleasantly surprised at the quantity of food but also by the quality. The flavours were very nice; not overly spicy, but with a hint of heat. We each had different... More
