Kelowna’s Dosa Crepe Café

For the uninitiated, the dosa is a crispy stuffed pancake made from a fermented batter of rice and black gram served with a sambar—lentil-based stew and tasty Indian dipping condiments. Typically, the stuffing is potato based but at the Dosa Crepe Café the choices are endless: Butter Chicken Dosa, Beef Curry Dosa, Spicy Spinach and Masala Dosa filled with spiced potato and veggies. The dosa here is gluten-free and there are many vegetarian and vegan options. The portions are huge so come with an appetite to this family friendly eatery.

S.S. Sicamous, Creperie Ooolala

Located in a Silverstream camper next to Penticton’s historic sternwheeler, the S.S. Sicamous, Creperie Ooolala is an iconic French creperie that looks as if it belongs in the whimsical French film, Amelie. Picture quaint curtains, café style tables with red-check tablecloths, a gorgeous old cappuccino maker. But it’s not just about the décor, these crepes are good: dark chocolate and fresh Okanagan cherries, goat’s cheese and spicy sausage, the buckwheat Farmer’s crepe with ham. Saturdays during the summer the creperie can be also found at the Penticton market. Be warned it’s popular so get there early.

Price Range: Crepes from $6.00-to-$11.00.
Décor: A mini vacation in France
Location: 1099 Lakeshore Drive W Penticton and the Penticton Market Food Court

Liquidity Winery Bistro and Gallery

Okanagan Falls based Liquidity Winery Bistro and Gallery is a picture of sophistication, showcasing the very best life has to offer: great estate-grown wine, a locally inspired bistro with food produced from their own garden, and museum quality art from around the world. It also has the most spectacular view in the region. The kind that steals one’s breath. (Warning do not bring a date here. Nobody needs that kind of competition.) Instead bring a friend who’s never visited the Okanagan before, sit on the deck and linger over a bottle of Chardonnay, Summer Pizza, House Cured Charcuterie and Steamed Shellfish.

Price Range: Lunches $8.00-to-$26.00. Large plate dinners starting at $23.00
Décor: L.A .meets NYC meets the Okanagan.
Location: 4720 Allendale Road Okanagan Falls,

Upper Bench Winery and Creamery

Wine and cheese is a time honored combination and the secret to Upper Bench Winery and Creamery’s success. On their patio they bake wood-fired oven pizzas, topped with garden grown tomatoes and greens, with artisanal cheeses handcrafted on the premise. There’s no better place to satisfy a craving for pizza. The menu is small with about six pizzas to choose from as well as farm-fresh salads and the best cheese plates around. Ask the server to recommend one of their award-winning wines to pair with the meal. There’s no wrong choices here, everything’s delectable. Alternatively drop by the winery and grab a bottle of your favorite vintage and order a pizza to go. Check out the cheese selection as well, but be warned with cheeses like U&Brie, the rustic Okanagan Sun and the semi soft blue, King Cole, it might take a while to make a decision.

Price Range: Pizzas from $17.00-to-$19.00
Décor: Quaint casual
Location: 170 Upper Bench Road South Penticton
