Head over to the three best patios in Kamloops

There’s nothing quite like enjoying a warm afternoon in Kamloops out on the patio indulging in a tasty meal and drink.

Whether you’re grabbing a solo bite to eat, or you’re joining your friends for a catch-up session, food hits different when you’re eating it outside.

Want to check out the best patios in town? Look no further! Here are the patios you voted the best in town, presented by Valley First, a division of First West Credit Union.

Bronze - Carlos O'Bryan's Neighborhood Pub

Eat, drink and be Irish over on our bronze winners patio.

Overlook the downtown core from their rooftop patio while enjoying some classic Irish food with that Carlos O’Bryan’s twist.

Some fan favourites you can order to go along with your views include Pachos, Chicken Lips, McCracken Rolls and Potato Skins.

They also have a summer special that’s perfect for sharing with your party out on the patio that features a Crab ‘n’ Shrimp Dip, a Charcuterie Board or both!

The pub is also well-known for its extensive cocktail menu – you can order almost anything you can think of and the bartender will serve it up. Sip on a Pina Colada while taking in a Kamloops sunset, or order their 6-pack express and try out six of your favourite shooter or drop shots.

Stop by this Best of Kamloops winner at 357 Victoria Street.

Silver - The Noble Pig Brewhouse

You’re going to want to check out the rustic, outdoorsy and spacious patio over at The Noble Pig Brewhouse.

Whether you visit on an afternoon or evening, the atmosphere is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the laid-back vibe that Kamloops is known for.

Toast to the perfect catch-up session with one of their delicious craft-brewed beers at this perfect neighbourhood spot.

Their 650 Victoria Street location is just close enough to downtown to be convenient, but far enough away to feel like you’re away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Their food is delicious, the staff is friendly and the beer is microbrewed in-house so you know it’s serious business.

Some of their yummy brews, named after the fable The Three Little Pigs, include Straw House, a Munich Helles Lager, Stick House, a Belgian Pepper Ale, Stone House, a Mocha Porter and Big Bad Wolf, an India Pale Ale.

Gold - Red Beard Cafe

Coming in first place is North Shore favourite, Red Beard Cafe!

Red Beard is part pub, part cafe and part restaurant, and has a comfortable and cozy atmosphere.

It’s the perfect place to catch up with friends over a meal or drink, to bring a date or to read a book alone while you sip on a coffee.

Their patio is inviting and open, so there is plenty of room to make yourself at home for a couple of hours while you unwind from the day.

They pour from 18 rotating taps, serving up the best craft beers and ciders from British Columbia they can find, so stop by often to try something new.

Because they craft their brunch, lunch and dinner menu from scratch, your food will always be fresh and flavourful.

You can stop by Red Beard Cafe from Tuesday to Saturday from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm, and on Sunday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm at 449 Tranquille Road.
