Vernon has a eclectic mix of coffee shops ranging from Canadian Icons like Tim Horton's to privately owned, funky shops where they roast their own beans.
We have several drive-thrus for times when you are in a hurry. When you have a little time for conversation or a bite to eat, there are plenty of coffee shops with great food and atmosphere.
Here a just a few you can choose from:
The only specialty coffee house west of 32nd St., 34th Street serves Spirit Bear Coffee, premium teas, and fresh homemade food. They have comfy couches, used books for sale, and interesting art. You can catch up on what's new on 34th Street Coffee House's Facebook page.
Located at 2930 30th Ave., this Bean Scene serves "Bean Around the World" coffee and specializes in dark roast coffees. Local artists are featured on the walls and are changed out on a monthly basis. There's plenty of atmosphere to go around in this two-story coffee shop, and there's even a bathtub swing on the upper floor. Other info is located on Bean Scene Coffee House's Facebook page.
The Cracked Pot Emporium is a fun coffee shop where you can get a cup of locally roasted Cherryhill coffee as well as breakfast, lunch and desserts. They have two locations: one at 2101 32 St., and one inside Vernon Jubilee Hospital. Check out some of the giftware crafted by local artisans. All baking is done in-house and they have full handicap access.
This spacious coffee shop at 3401-A 30th Ave. uses coffee beans from multiple Western Canadian roasters and has daily features from a variety of roasters. They also sell fresh and exciting coffee for espresso and filter brewing as well as a variety of brewing gear to make excellent coffee at home. You can follow Triumph Coffee on Facebook.
Located in the historic Vernon train station at 101 29th Street, Ratio Coffee is a treat for all to enjoy. Every Friday this unique coffee shop serves hand-made donuts. Regular customers, tourists, and Okanagan foodies line up early, hoping to sample one of Chef Laurie's works of art. Most Fridays, donuts sell out within hours of opening so get there early! You'll find more info on Ratio Coffee and Pastry's Facebook page.
