Best dessert


With offerings like three layer chocolate mousse cake, chocolate tarte, lemon tarte, raspberry torte and almond pear tarte it is clear why the Blackbird Bakery takes top honours for dessert.

The bakery also offers muffins, cookies, scones, cinnamon buns, Danish and more. The bakery will add an extra special touch to a birthday party by making a custom-made cake.

Best latte


Mount Currie Coffee Co. owner Chris Ankeny says his team is very passionate about coffee.

"We source the best espresso we can find," he says on a busy Monday at the Pemberton outlet. "Steaming milk — there's a bit of an art to that and making sure you have the nice silky-smooth milk and putting it all together to make a really good latte. Our goal is to have a latte that's so good you don't have to add any sweeteners or syrups to it because it's naturally sweet and delicious."

Ankeny knows that making a good drink is just the start.

"I think customer service is as important as the product and having good staff that presents a great product is super key because no matter how good your product is if your service is bad customers won't come back," says Ankeny.

Blackbird Bakery also serves up a preferential latte and the bakery scored a second place finish in this category.

Best burger


There are seven burgers to choose from at Mile One. The ingredient list of extras includes Happy Days Okanagan Goat Cheese, fire roasted red bell peppers and B.C. mushrooms.

The meat is homegrown and Blackbird Bakery provides the buns daily.

"The burgers are a huge part of what we do," says chef Randy Jones. "We keep it simple."

Jones says many Mile One customers add roasted Yukon gold potato wedges to their order.

The Pony came second in burger voting and The Wood received enough votes for third place.
