Wayne and Freda is a family café with a family story.
There is so much to love about this family-owned coffee shop in Pentictonthe pretty interior, the huge wraparound patio, the menu (which screams millennial, but you cant say that an avocado toast with housemade kale pumpkin seed pesto doesn't sound good).
In fact, you could have a perfectly nice outing to Wayne and Freda without knowing their story at all. But hearing that Wayne, owner Ryan's grandfather, and Freda, owner Jen's grandmother, lived in the same care homeand became friends after learning their grandchildren were datingis truly the icing on the cake (or the whip on the coffee).
Simple line drawings of the two seniors dancing dot the walls of this cozy, storied space. It's feel-good vibes all around, and It's a perfect oasis for a year where travel feels both foreign and essential.
