Pulp Fiction Coffee is a 1950’s themed coffee shop that lives a funky double life as a rare book store. You won’t find any Tarantino references here - the name refers to the stacks of softcover ‘pulp fiction’ novels that line the shelves and give the space a nostalgic feel and unique aroma. With a fireplace, antique section, and tight seating arrangement, this Kelowna coffee feels a bit like Grandma’s living room.
Pulp Fiction Coffee is tucked away on the corner of Pandosy St. and Lawrence Ave.

After coffee, you're a short stroll away from the beach in Tugboat Bay and some of Kelowna's best fine dining restaurants.
1320 Water St
Deville Coffee is a Calgary-based coffee shop known for direct trade coffee and fresh baked goods. “Direct trade” means that Deville buys beans straight from the farmers – not via middlemen.

In addition to coffee drinks, Deville serves up breakfast wraps, brioches, cronuts, and gluten-friendly brownies.
