Burger & Cafe JOY - Kamloops, BC

Jeez, June has been busy! So busy, that I feel I deserve a burger today. Since Burger & Café Joy is inside the Sahali Mall it’s a good way to wait out the rain. (What is up with all this rain? I thought I moved away from this.) It’s been some time since I last chatted about Burger & Café JOY; this place can bring you all kinds of happiness.

Walkers Toffee at The Bulk Barn - Kamloops, BC

The Bulk Barn was never on my list of Lets-Check-It-Out places until A.L. bumped into a Pal-o-Mine there earlier this year. I’m one of those people who isn’t completely comfortable with self-serve bulk foods. Does this surprise you? Please.

Yorkshire Gold Tea - Kamloops, BC

Is it June already? We are half way into 2012! I feel like the last six months went by like six weeks.
I went into London Drugs to pick up some contact solution. I came out with eighty dollars worth of other items, completely unrelated to contact lenses. How does this happen?
I spy that my favourite everyday tea is on sale, so I toss a few boxes of Yorkshire Gold Tea in my basket. Yorkshire Gold Tea is made by Taylors of Harrogate, and it is a lovely strong tea.

Breakfast at Caffé Arianna - Kamloops, BC

**UPDATE January 2014: It pains me to type this, and share the sad news that Caffe Arianna is now closed. The location now houses Sikora Caffe.**

Carolyn's Cozy Cafe - Kamloops, BC

Still on my breakfast kick. This is Carolyn’s. Is it still called Carolyn’s Cozy Café? In any event, Carolyn’s is a DDE located amongst the buildings that make up the Acadian Motor Inn on Columbia Street.

Katryna's Perogy at Summit Gourmet Meats - Kamloops, BC

You like pierogi, and I like pyrohy.
Pierogi, pyrohy, perogy, pirogi
Let’s call the whole thing off.

No let’s not, because pierogi are tasty. (It’s late. Apologies to Gershwin lovers.)

Caffe Motivo - Kamloops, BC

It is a sunny but cool day on the Northshore of Kamloops today. I stop for a quick bit of lunch over at Caffe Motivo. I contemplate heading over to the garden center later as well.

My peas, that I sowed two weeks ago, are coming up. So exciting. I’m learning this gardening thing a bit as I go. Last year I learned: No, I cannot leave garden plants out to fend for themselves, in the middle of summer, for a week; with no water.

The Zoo Ice Cream Parlor and Crêperie - Kamloops, BC

Speaking of Slashy Establishments...here’s another:
The Zoo Ice Cream Parlour and Crêperie. The ice cream-crêpe shop is slashed with Kamloops Cigar and Pipe Store. What a mix! This place is straight up wack...in the best possible way.

I can understand if you’re thinking its a little DDE-ish from the outside.

Club Malz (malta drink) at Gary's Deli - Kamloops, BC

Another malt beverage find at Gary’s European Sausage and Deli! I make regular stops at Gary's for deli offerings, and malt drinks. On this particular day Gary’s Deli is out of Karamalz, but I spy Club Malz occupying its place inside the cooler. Let’s try!

Nayaab Fine Indian Cuisine - Kamloops, BC

**UPDATE: September 2012 Nayaab Fine Indian is now closed. Cornerstone Sushi and Korean BBQ now occupies this space.**

After the original owner of Spice A Taste of Indian Cuisine sold his Northshore restaurant, he went on the hunt for a new project. This is the finished product: Nayaab Fine Indian Cuisine on Seymour Street near 6th Avenue. DL caught wind of this new Indian Restaurant via A.L.
