I occasionally visit the big coffee establishments, there are really just two in Canada and both are international. But they don’t have the warm of an independent coffee shop.
Without being negative about the “giants” I want to share my observations about an independent coffee cafe in Penticton.
If you visited my city Penticton, on my tour
I would take you to Nauti Dog Cafe which is located at the boat marina on Skaha Lake; perched beachside, a beautiful view west looking across the shimmering lake.
So, it’s a wonderful location, right?
It also has “fresh baking“, the owner Fergy is a chef in her own right, and the kitchen is right there six feet behind the espresso maker, the scent of fresh baking is amazing !!
View, delicious food of all kinds, (not frozen and reheated like the big franchises), that’s great, right?
It is and whether you sit outside or inside, the space is large, warm and friendly – I will add some of my own pictures.
Every week or so, my son and I go and just relax with Americanos, and enjoyed the view and space and appreciated the manner that Sam made us feel welcome.
So I like it, and I like it because Fergy,
has made it a special place, she is investing her time, skill, and abilities to make this a place where regulars are recognized by name; customers come to relax all seasons!
So if you mosey through the valley, swing by the Nauti Dog Cafe – and say Hi to Fergy and Sam and see and taste what you think. 🙂
By the way, my last visit I had banana bread french toast, it was yum.
Thanks for the visit to my blog, and taking the time. Comments and suggestions always appreciated. 🙂 Dave
