It’s time for part two of our Hidden Gems of Kelowna series! If you have any hidden gems you feel deserve a shout out, make sure to let us know. I know for me personally, I’m always looking for new-to-me local businesses to check out in the Okanagan, so I’d love to hear from you.
This month, I’m highlighting three businesses I’ve had awesome experiences with. Great people + exceptional customer service + unreal services/products = local business you MUST check out.
Lately, I’ve been busy. And, I’m not just saying that to be whiny. I work part-time with Telus and when I’m not working there, I’m freelancing for tons of different clients so I’m basically working whenever I’m not sleeping. I needed to treat myself so I quickly looked up “nail salons in Glenmore” and Sunny Nails came up. It’s funny because if you read my last post about hidden gems in Kelowna, you know I love Dozo Sushi House, and Sunny Nails is legit right beside them. I finally went on in, and I had what was the best mani and pedi I’ve ever had! The girl was super friendly, I felt incredibly relaxed, and I walked out feeling fresh to death. Check them out for your next pampering session.
This might not be hidden to other people, but I only recently discovered the epic-ness of Pearson’s Deli. They have such a diverse (and delicious) menu that’ll have you constantly coming back for more. I tried the Thai chicken wrap with a tortellini (my fave!) pasta salad and it was so mouth-watering. They have lots of other good dishes as well, so I feel you can’t really go wrong. Breakfast, lunch; whatever meal you decide to treat yourself to next, give Pearson’s Deli a try if you’re a newbie to the place like I once was.
Ferrara’s Italian Market
I love a good market and Ferrara’s didn’t disappoint. My boyfriend and I went there for lunch one day and ordered meatball subs which were absolutely out of this world. We even got soup and I’m sure you won’t be surprised when I tell you it was none other than perfect. They also have tons of different refrigerated products which I’m fairly certain are homemade (pastas, sauces, etc). With all of that tasty food, my favorite part about Ferrara’s Italian Market has to be how proud the owner, Frank is about his business. You can tell he cares about every single one of his customers, and that really makes all the difference.
I want to try your favourite places! Where do you think I should go next in Kelowna?
