Here in the heart of the Okanagan Valley, there are so many wonderful edible destinations, it is hard to narrow it down to a few. But here it goes:

My top delicious, must-visit stops in Kelowna for treats!

1. Bean Scene Coffee

Bean Scene Coffee

Bean Scene is my go-to for coffee. I buy both their house-roasted beans (Espresso Graf) for making coffee at home as well as indulge in a takeaway cappuccino regularly. There are four locations to choose from, but my neighbourhood haunt is in Pandosy Village. They also have food – treats as well as breakfast, brunch and lunchy items.

2. Karat Chocolate

Karat Chocolate - Peach Dessert

Oh, be still my chocolate-loving heart. This place is almost an obsession for me. I love the chocolate bars, like love. And then there is the extravaganza of tiny, perfect work of art desserts that come in a fancy box that makes you feel fancy, and they taste fancy, and you can’t believe you are able to buy these here (breathe). But I digress. Go eat some and get back to me on that.

3. Okanagan Grocery Artisan Breads

Okanagan Grocery - Brownies

Walking into Okanagan Grocery is like aromatherapy for the foodling. The breads here are the real deal - meaning they use natural sourdough starter and no unnecessary additives. And they also have treats. Lots and lots of treats! Croissants, cookies, THE brownie (like no other, this is the ONE you have been searching for), amazing scones, and cakes. They have other essentials like housemade Okanagan jams too.

4. Perseval & Young Cheesemongers

Perseval & Young Cheesemongers - Owners holding wheels of cheese

CHEESE! Yes, now that I have your attention, we do have a dedicated, awesome cheese shop called Perseval & Young Cheesemongers owned and operated by an adorable turophile couple (turophile: the ultimate cheese lover). Here you will find a mix of international and local dairy delights for all y’all cheese heads out there.
