Downtown Osoyoos Gems
The Watermark Beach Resort is ideally situated for discovering the local gems throughout downtown Osoyoos. As the only beachfront Osoyoos hotel within a short walk to the cafes, restaurants and boutiques located on or near Main Street, we wanted to share with you some of our favorite places to poke around in while walking through town.
Touted as one of the best places for Gelato in the entire Okanagan region, Osoyoos Gelato is a great place for a cold snack on a hot day. The Gelato is hand crafted and available flavors rotate on a regular basis so you may want to pop in more than once so you can discover some of the new and unique tastes offered here. With plenty of selection to suit every palate (from kids' to adults) this is a stop not to be missed.
One of the not-so-hidden gems in town is JoJo's Cafe. With a variety of lattes, americanos, iced drinks, cappuccinos and mocha’s this is a great spot to stop for a cup of joe. Bakery items are made from scratch in the kitchen each day and there are a variety of made-to-order sandwiches and soups available each day. Locals and visitors love to stop here for more than just coffee. They come for breakfast and lunch, too.
Another great place to stop for more than just coffee is doLci Artisan Fare, just up the street. Lattes, delicious breakfast and lunch sandwiches, house made pastries and bakery items, fine grocery products and a very inviting atmosphere make this vibrant spot a great place to pop into while in Osoyoos.
