Nevada City has a number of great coffee shops within a small space.  At the top of the hill (and closest to the Outside Inn) is Broad Street Bistro.  The outdoor seating is a great place to sit and people watch.  Stop in for a yummy bagel sandwich or get a salad to go for lunch.  Open from 7am to 6pm everyday, catch up with a friend over coffee, check out the local artists displays or bring your lap top and join the folks who use the coffee shop as their virtual office.
