Nestled on Pandosy Avenue in downtown Kelowna, Pulp Fiction Coffee House is a well known local spot to get cozy with exceptional beverages and eats.

Not only do locals love the coffee, there’s also plenty of unique books and antiques to check out that owner Max Sloan collected before opening the shop.
