Fell in love with browsing around and also dining in, while reading the newly bought books. I would love to come back whenever I am back in the area. Came in to experience the vibe and it was so priceless. Got so engrossed in the experience that I forgot to take more pictures deeper inside of the sections and rooms of Robbie Rare Books. Very grateful for people like Max to live out the dream and sustain a valuable establishment like this to carry on the history and legacy of pulp fiction which is harder to find these days.
We got a couple of their sandwiches that were made on sourdough bread (Montreal smoked beef and the Genny). The flavors are largely salty and the layer of meat is paper thin so it was very difficult to appreciate much. Tried their Jasmine tea fog and lavender lemonade - the lemonade had a hint of lavender but was otherwise a standard lemonade. The ambiance is great and would go back for that, as well as to peruse their collection. A nice place to sit and chat.
Fun environment in which to linger over a coffee, enjoy a wrap or muffin (some vegan foods offered) and wander through the rooms full of books, posters and antiques. (I would like to be able to purchase coffee beans or ground coffee in bulk, rather than in the 350-gram bags, so I could buy a smaller amount.)
Excellent coffee shop/cafe, extremely unique style and eclectic mix of a cafe that meets a library/book store. Friendly staff and excellent drinks and food. As they say it “art, books and antiques, all in a groovy retro atmosphere in downtown Kelowna “
As usual, I forgot to take pix before we started eating. I had the ham and egger sandwich which was customized even tho the till clerk thought maybe they couldn’t. The cinnamon bun fills the plate. Tasty. Not far off the waterfront promenade.
