4 delicious breakfasts to-go in the Okanagan

Laying cozy in bed, your morning alarm tells you it's time to begin your morning ritual and you either tap silence or snooze... but did you know there is a third option?

If you were to grab your phone and conduct a few more taps, you could order take-out breakfast to mix up your routine. Whether you're working from home or going to work, take-out is a great way to set the tone for your day and besides, many of us already make the daily trip to the drive-thru, so why not instead order a take-out latte or pick-up something exceptional?

And best of all, by supporting take-out in BC, you’re supporting our food industry, our farmers, our chefs, and our communities.

And taking part couldn’t be easier (or tastier):

  1. Check out the list of participating restaurants below.
  2. Order one of the special breakfast items to-go or for dine-in.
  3. BC Dairy will donate a meal to the Breakfast Club of Canada on your behalf.

The Breakfast Club of Canada has made it their purpose to ensure that no kid goes to school hungry.

When students attend school on an empty stomach their energy levels, problem-solving skills, creativity, concentration and behaviour are negatively impacted - the same applies for adults - so through programs like this, you're helping them create a nurturing environment, where children and youth can flourish.



Good morning sunshine, Cora's featured menu items are lattes and “Paul wants it all,” which is two eggs, bacon and potatoes served with half a waffle garnished with fresh fruit and English cream Cora-style.
