Medici's Gelateria and Coffee Shop, Oliver BC

September is here, school has started, and the fall weather still has not arrived. So if you are in the Okanagan area picking apples you need to stop at Medici's. From the outside it looks like a church or some sort of mini castle, but on the inside is this lovely gelateria and coffee shop where you can get the best gelato you will ever have, without trekking all the way to Italy.

And just because I worked there this summer doesn't mean I'm biased...

But seriously, the owners of Medici's make all the gelato and sorbretto in house, which makes it fresh and local. They also puree their own fruit from local farmers for the sorbretto. So everything taste exactly how you would expect it to taste. The blueberry taste exactly like you are eating blueberries, strawberries, exactly like strawberries and lemon, wow, is the lemon ever good.

Not only do they have the best gelato in Canada but they've got a great lunch special that they serve daily from 11am-2pm. Home made deli sandwiches, paninis and daily soups that are so delicious, you will never want to go near another Campbell's soup can ever again.

Along with your lunch you can also enjoy a cappuccino, espresso, Italian soda, fruit tea smoothie, ice coffee, matcha green tea lemonade (one of my favourites) and so much more! There really is something for everyone here.

So please, if you are interested in experience a little taste of heaven and a little taste of Italy, you need to stop and get gelato here. If Silvia has black chocolate made you must try it. It is like nothing you have ever tasted before and probably my favourite. But I do also love her peanut butter and chocolate... oh and her coconut is also to die for! But so is the pistachio! Oh and the hazel nut and chocolate.... oh wait, and I can't forget the salty caramel... Oh! And the...

  1. Every dish of food is looking delicious. I wanna try to every dish of these and then I need a cup of black coffee. When I visit a coffee shop actually I do the same with my friends and family.
