Casual Comfortable Eats

Craft beers × Comfort food × wood fired pizza


Located in downtown Kelowna, The Curious is a purveyor of craft beers, great food, and a welcoming atmosphere.

In the heart of Kelowna's cultural district, The Curious Café has been serving both quality takes on classic dishes as well as daring ventures into the uncharted territories of food since November, 2014.


The Curious interior, designed by proprietor Luigi Coccaro and designer Rhonda Lebedoff, reflects hip sensibilities and urban flare while paying tribute to Kelowna's storied past. Adding to the mystique of the setting is the location's history – what once was a weathered tobacco shop has been transformed into a lively gathering place for friends, family, and strangers alike.


Our multi-room restaurant offers the choice to eat comfortably on the café side with a view of our open-concept kitchen, or gather in the bustling dining room which offers large community tables and smaller, individual tables, as well as bar seating with a front row view of beer, ciders, and wine flowing from our 24 rotating taps.
