Hot chocolate is the perfect way to warm up on a cold winter day. Hannah & Mylah consider themselves hot chocolate experts; after tasting countless hot chocolates, they decided that these places are their favourite spots in Kelowna.
Over the past couple of years, one of Kelowna’s greatest establishments has multiplied from its downtown location to five shops around town, and another up at Big White! If you have the pleasure of popping by one of these welcoming spots, make sure to ask for a Party on your hot chocolate. You won’t regret it. Check out all of Bean Scene's locations, here.
Our favourite close to home stop is only a few minutes from our front door and might have the best latte in town! Located just off of Highway 33, the kids love going to Kootenay Coffee to sit at the front window, play eye spy, and sip on a hot chocolate with a very healthy serving of whipped cream!
Pulp Fiction Coffee House
One of the coolest spots downtown is Pulp Fiction. We love the drinks but stay for the amazing book collection! With tons of cool books to check out and super fast WiFi, it’s an excellent spot to hang out for an hour on a cool or rainy day.
Saturday morning breakfast at Bread Co. has to be one of our family’s favourite pastimes. Pastries, stuffed french toast, sandwiches, benny’s… did I mention stuffed french toast?!? And no trip is complete without a couple of warm drinks! You can find Bread Co. downtown and in Pandosy Village.
If you’re looking for a nice warm drink, Sprout is a great spot to stop by! The newest addition to our hot chocolate route has very rapidly become one of our favourites. While the fresh bread (focaccia is insane) is my favourite part, the kids love getting their little hands on the Kids Fluffy, which is essentially steamed milk with a little chocolate powder, served in a perfect kid-sized mug. Definitely take some time to pop by Sprout! You can find Sprout right beside Prospera Place on Cannery Lane.
