Though only a recent addition to the building, Samosa Joes, operated by Joe Patel, has been a big hit in Vernon and the Okanagan region as a whole. It’s the first exclusively samosa bakery in the region, and with its ideal location in downtown Vernon just minutes from route 97, locals and tourists alike can stop by for a visit.
We chatted with Mr. Samosa Joe himself, who told us about his unique recipe that forgoes traditional samosa dough for phyllo pastry. Check out what he has to say and be sure to pop in for your first taste – Joe insists!
An art gallery and supply store, this space run by Noah MacLeod fosters creativity, inclusiveness and engagement. It particularly seeks to attract a younger crowd in what is a relatively quiet town with an older population as a place where they can go that’s accessible and affordable.
As Noah explains in an interview with us, the space is multi-functional, serving as a retail shop selling Canadian apparel, a place to show off and sell art as well as a location that allows creatives to, well, create. They even have art classes and live music. Check out what Noah has to say below.
