This site is longer updated. At one time there were reviews of a couple dozen cafes and shops in the Okanagan, but the information is no longer current and the reviews have been deleted. In starting this site my aim was to help people who like coffee find good coffee in the Okanagan, but also to encourage a sense of community around good food and drink and to encourage people to get together to make shit happen. Since this site was started in 2009 two friends I made through this blog opened two separate cafes in Vernon, both with their own unique and new -to Vernon- take on the cafe-as-community-hub. The huge amount of hard work it took (and continues to take) is entirely theirs, but I hope this blog played a little part in encouraging those ventures.
You’ve probably found this site while searching for somewhere in the Okanagan to get good speciality coffee, so I won’t leave you high and dry. At this point I’m happy to say the following list is incomplete, as there are more great cafes in the area than these ones. It’s just that I don’t know what they are (especially in Kelowna, I haven’t spent any meaningful amount of time there in years).
I’m still available at okanagancoffeeblog@gmail.
