Neighbourhood Focus: Pandosy Village
Dated: November 5 2019
Own Your Piece of Pandosy Paradise
Have you ever walked down Pandosy Street and thought “This is my dream neighbourhood!”
Life in Pandosy Village has a different type of energy compared to other neighbourhoods in Kelowna. While there’s hustle and bustle, there’s also a laid-back feeling to the area.
New condo developments are popping up in the area and people are flocking at the chance to slow down and live the Pandosy lifestyle.
What exactly is the Pandosy lifestyle? Here’s a day in the life of a Pandosy condo resident.
Morning Fitness Class + Lake Dip
No matter the type of fitness you’re looking for, Pandosy Village has it! Pick between a hot yoga class at Modo Yoga Kelowna, sweat at Orangetheory or take your anger out at 9Rounds!
After your early morning sweat session, don’t forget to live the #PandosyLifestyle and take a jump into Okanagan Lake. Nothing will beat the refreshing water washing over your body after completing a fantastic workout!
Brunch on Pandosy
After you towel off, it’s time to fill your belly with delicious food! The Okanagan is the land of locally owned and operated restaurants and fresh farm-to-table food.
The Marmalade Cat Cafe is a Pandosy favourite with mouthwatering breakfast options and speciality coffees worthy of an Instagram shot.
Another favourite is Waterfront Cafe. Located on Abbott Street, just minutes from Pandosy, enjoy your breakfast overlooking Okanagan Lake. Whether you’re a savoury or sweet brunch eater, Waterfront Cafe has options for everyone.
Lounge at the Beach
Pandosy Village is known for the proximity to Okanagan Lake and the countless “Beach Access” points.
After brunch, head home, change into your swimsuits and walk to your closest beach! Enjoy the sun, rent a paddleboard or kayak and get out into the water. If you’re looking for a family beach, Gyro Beach may be your best option with kids playsets, a rope swing into the lake and beach volleyball courts.
If you’re looking for a more secluded beach, walk or drive down Lakeshore and scout out a “beach access” blue sign. Head into the parking lot and enjoy the peace and quiet of these smaller beach entry points.
Urban Fare Food
Hungry after your swim? Walk less than 10 minutes to the local’s favourite grocer Urban Fare. Devour ready meals at the salad bar, smoothies, juices and much more!
You can grab a bite of lunch at the Urban Fare restaurant and enjoy the in-store seating area. Or… take it back to your beach spot and chow down with a view. Don’t forget to head to the snack aisle for a little taste of dessert!
Coffee + Shopping Break
In need of an afternoon pick-me-up? We suggest coffee at Beanscene on Pandosy. Loved by locals and travelling tourists, Beanscene has an array of snacks. Don’t forget to try the famous Cosmic Cookie.
After your pick-me-up, it’s time to hear “cha-ching” on your credit card! Boheme Collective on Pandosy is the perfect spot to do a little shopping. We also love The Zen Den to buy the goods to help you live the chilled out Pandosy Lifestyle.
Dinner on Pandosy
As dinner time nears, there are many great spots to check out! Our top of three choices is Soy Fusion under Modo Yoga Kelowna. If you’re heading there, be sure to bite into their most popular main - the Korean BBQ Burger!
The second choice would be Zabb Thai! If you’re grabbing take out, Zabb allows you to bring your own containers to help lower the amount of plastic going out! Just call beforehand and let them know.
Finally, you have to try Hector’s Casa! If you’re craving authentic Mexican, head to Hector’s and order a margarita, guac and a hearty main.
We can hear your belly rumbling from here!
Evening Stroll + Views From the Balcony
After dinner and some drinks, walk it all off on Pandosy and Lakeshore or even a close-by park. Stroll with your toes in the sand and enjoy the evening views of Okanagan Lake. End your night on your patio, watching the sunset over Pandosy Village.
