Kelowna is well known for beaches, fresh fruit, wineries, golf, lake life and PATIOS! Downtown Kelowna has a number of restaurants that will have you sitting outside enjoying tasty bites, great local wines and farm-to-table cocktails. Leave Downtown and you will find even more patios to enjoy.

Here are a few of the patios where you’ll find me spending time this summer, see you there.

1. Sunset Organic Bistro at Summerhill Pyramid Winery

Wine, organic cuisine, and incredible sunsets. Featuring the best regional ingredients sourced from their own biodynamic gardens and wildlife preserves, brought in from a network of organic farmers. An outstanding way to experience the unique culinary culture of the Okanagan Valley.

2. CRAFT Beer Market

Everything from their Harvest Caesar Salad to the Prime Rib Cheddar Burger to a Lamb Shank.
