Great Vegan food

Saw all the great reviews so decided to drive to Lake Country to give it a try. Great location across from Okanagan Lake. Summer time so we ate outside. Place was busy so I was surprised how quickly we got our food. We started with the last piece of carrot cake they had and it was good. We had the Chic’n bacon ranch sandwich with salad- excellent! And the jackfruit quesadilla- also excellent. Will definitely come back.

Delicious Brunch

Few items to choose from. We had a hash and breakfast burger. The vegan egg was weird, but only because I am not a fan of imitation meat or eggs. But tasty overall. Nice little stop to the beach, unfortunately the ice cream shop next to it didn’t have any ice cream for Vegans

Not a bad spot

Very cute little vegan restaurant, good food, but just not enough for the price (sandwich was only soy curls between bread essentially). Came hungry, left hungry.

Pros: All vegan

Hey there! Thank you for your feedback! We just opened back up last week and I fear this might have been an error from one of our training staff members, as it look like the sandwich is missing half its ingredients :0 If you are willing to give us another shot we would love to make you another meal on the house😄

Great lunch spot

We sat on the covered patio with our baby, they had a high chair, so it was perfect! Great vibes, staff was super friendly. I had the quesadilla and it was great! My non veg hubby had the chick’n sandwich and said it was excellent. Baby had the chickpea egg and gobbled it up (I had a bit and it was fantastic!) and we all shared a side of hashbrowns, which were good. I also enjoyed the fresh squeezed watermelon lemonade - loved that they used glass straws. We also shared a soft serve and a carrot cake and they were fantastic as well. Enjoying it all and forgot to take pics! But everything was presented nicely and it was absolutely lovely. If you’re in the area, highly recommend!

Cute little spot

Excellent friendly service. The food was amazing. Sad that they didn’t have any ice cream sandwiches left, but that’s ok, we will be back.

We ordered a BLT, which was super satisfying. Some cookies, that were perfectly baked (not dry), and the carrot cake was to die for - which will throw your tastebuds for a loop. Instead of heaving cream cheese icing, they use something lighter infused with lemon. It pairs nicely with the carrot cake.

Pros: Friendly staff, Close to the lake, Delicious food at a decent price point.

Cons: They don’t have a location in AB

Pros: All vegan, Great coffee, Amazing bakery items

Cons: Limited parking

Beautiful patio surrounded by flower gardens

Vegan breakfast and lunch menu with extensive goodies selection and coffees/specialty teas too. Sooo happy they are only 6 min from my sister's house! For my first visit I took a Lavender Lemonade Kombucha for the road, thoroughly enjoyed the Sunshine Latte (turmeric tea with coconut milk) and had a Brekkie Burito with added tofu bacon. My dog even got to enjoy one of their house made Dog Treats (chickpea, banana, oats).

I especially love that my entire to go meal came in paper packaging! Yay!

Dead impressed! Can't wait to come back next time I'm in town from Vancouver.

We have eaten here several times and always leave happy! The baking is especially awesome and they have lots of GF options. Also the egg sandwich really impressed my daughter, she says it tastes exactly like “real” egg.

They have the best baked goods in the region and their lunch plates are pretty good too. Custom cakes too...yum!

Lake side setting, fully vegan

Located across the road from Okanagan Lake, the restaurant has patio seating with a lovely lake view. Menu has a good range of dishes.

Pros: Full vegan menu with gluten free options, Owner is passionate about plant based food, The turtle brownies are best in BC

Cons: Front of house service could be better at times, On two separate visits give one plate & one fork , 2 cakes? Long wait for toast to go with dish

Best Vegan Meal Kelowna

We ate Vegan on our entire 10 day trip and this was by far our favorite. We had the Cobb Salad with Jackfruit and a chickpea curry bowl with butternut squash. Everything was excellent. Wish we found this place in the beginning of our trip and we would have eaten here more often.

Pros: A lot of gluten free vegan options, Tasty food profiles, Affordable

Cons: N/A

Pros: Lots of options , Beautiful location, Drinks and cakes amazing

Odd location but fantastic food

I’ve been here a few times now and, though a little out of the way, it’s worth the drive. The food is fresh and flavorful. You can’t go wrong with the daily special or the Rainbow Salad.

Cute and yummy!

Not only is the cafe so quaint and welcoming but the food is amazingly good! Went for brunch today (Nov 18) with my friend and we ordered the breakfast burrito and the spiced pear french toast to share and two drip coffees. All of it was delicious and was completely reasonably priced. You must visit!!!! The only issue was that we couldn’t order the BLT because the bacon wasn’t ready yet.

Pros: All vegan , Cute cafe vibes, Friendly staff

Cons: Didn’t have ingredients for the meal we wanted

My New Favourite!

I took my mom here for brunch and we were both blown away. The menu has something for everyone and there are incredible artisan desserts. Great coffee and kombucha on tap as well as kids choices.
The restaurant has a cozy atmosphere and has a great patio. The restaurant is located in one of the most beautiful areas of the Okanagan, right across the road from the lake.

Pros: Assorted menu, Well-priced, Beautiful atmosphere

Cons: A bit out of the way

Best baked goods!

It is difficult to go to The Salty Caramel Kitchen and not want to buy every single baked good from their shelves. The ginger cookies, peach crumble muffins, and pumpkin scones are just a couple of my favourites. They make a wicked savory pizza roll and cheez-dill scone as well. The chocolate hemp milk is a must-try (awesome with a shot of espresso).

We love to bring our dog and sit out on the patio, with a fantastic view of the lake. They make dog treats that are free with purchase (of human food), and the doggos love them!

Worth the drive, even though it's a little out of the way. It's a great lunch spot if you're wine tasting in the Lake Country area!

Pros: Completely vegan, Loads of options, from baked goods to hot food, Dog-friendly patio

Cons: Location is far from city-center

The Perfect Cafe

The Salty Caramel Kitchen is in a beautiful spot just above the lake in a quiet community. The vegan menu offers a somewhat short list of food options, but they can all compete for the best choice. I suggest sharing dishes with your company so you can taste multiple items. It's a small cafe set up for casual social gathering and eating. I really enjoyed my meal and could not think of anything wrong so 5 star

Pros: quiet, peaceful, taste

Cons: debit machine went out

I love supporting local businesses, especially ones that are ran by women. Salty Caramel Kitchen makes that INCREDIBLEY easy. The staff are approachable and helpful, while the food is beyond amazing. I haven't tried something I don't enjoy yet, everything is packed with flavors and textures like no other. The menu is always changing, bringing in an assortment of baked goods and homemade style food. This is a 45 minute drive from where I live but they will always have me coming back

Pros: Atmosphere , Homemade style food, Service
