The Curious Café opened in November 2014 and is located in the heart of Kelowna's cultural district. Since then, The Curious has been serving both quality interpretations of classic dishes and daring new ventures into the uncharted territories of food.

The Curious interior, designed by proprietor Luigi Coccaro and designer Rhonda Lebedoff, reflects the hip sensibilities urban area's while also paying tribute to Kelowna's storied past. Adding to the mystique of the setting is the location's history, as it used to be a run-down tobacco shop, now transformed into a warm hang out.

The multi-room restaurant offers the choice to eat comfortably on the café side where one may watch the art of cooking as it occurs in the open-kitchen room or sit on the community table side where 16 beers flow from our rotating taps.
