I always visit "The Art We Are", each time I am back in Kamloops. This visit, I had to stop twice:) I Love their London Fog Tea, it is the BEST I have ever had. Cannot wait to visit again next time. Staff is super, as is service.

Good selection of coffee teas and snacks. Some very unique artwork. A good place to catch up with friends or unwind in the evening after a long day.

This is probably the most fun place to eat in Kamloops. The food is really special and the art on the walls is so entertaining (and is for sale). Artisans sell here too. With a very "hippy" retro feel, great food, and great staff this really is a spot you must try when in downtown Kamloops.

This is an artsy cafe that has some vegetarian/vegan/gluten free options. Almost everything is pre made in house, so that limits your ability to modify your meal. I tried the "Marvellous Mexi Pockets" and one of the three daily soups, in this case, the "Peanut Butter Soup". The Mexi Pocket was warmed up in the toaster oven and served with... More

Looking for lunch we noticed "wrap" on the menu board. Went in and looked at the cooler counter and soup board and found we hit the spot.. Borsch soup and wraps were excellent. Coo. Interior with well spaced tables made it comfortable. Will try again.

The food is pretty good - a bit pricey but much of it is organic and fresh so that is to be expected. Taste wise its okay but nothing spectacular. What makes this place shine however is the ambiance of the environment. Very nice place to relax and have a coffee and read a book. Trendy and artsy as the... More

What an adorable spot to stop for lunch or a snack. The walls are full of art, there's a book shelf in the back of the store and the menu board is large and full of mouth watering eats and treats. We were here on a Saturday afternoon and the majority of people were reading, studying or working on their... More

had lunch with a friend. Note this is not the place to go if you want quiet conversation. We arrived early and there were only 2 other customers. The food is all premade but even still there was a short delay while it was being dished up. We both had the Curried lentil and pineapple soup one with corn bread... More

Very quirky little place with lots of atmosphere. Great New York deli style food. A great place to have some lunch or a snack and relax with a coffee. They use the french press for coffee and I love it. Lots of local artists have displays of crafts and paintings which are greatly displayed and priced for sale. Nice place... More
