As locals living in Kelowna, we like our coffee and can get choosy about where to find it. Coffee shops abound. But good coffee, really good coffee, the kind that you close your eyes for to take that first sip, is what we’re exploring with you today.
3rd Space Coffee house finds itself on the main floor of Landmark 2. Don’t be taken by the corporate sounding address. 3rd space feels like your living room (if your living room is really comfy and clean). Truly cool people hang out there. And if coffee isn’t your cup of tea, 3rd space also serves craft beer on tap, and that’s not a bad alternative.
A true Kelowna gem and local favorite is Valoroso Foods. If it's Italian, fine and edible, you'll find it at Valoroso, coffee included. Cappuccino, espresso, americano, all expertly made and served in real china, saucer included. The difficult part of the journey is looking over the Italian sweets and baking taunting from behind the polished display window while waiting the line. Resist you may try. Most customers can’t and invite the tiramisu to join them and their hot drink.
GioBean Coffee makes coffee the true Italian way. With decades of coffee history and expertise, Gio will not disappoint, as may awards will attest. With two locations (Lanfranco and Water streets) you’re are out of excuses.
