This place is now called Motivo and is very much worth the trip off the highway into the heart of downtown Kamloops. One of the best lattes we have ever had. In fact I made a special trip back into the restaurant to let them know. Their desserts are made in house and are very tasty. Tack another 10 minutes... More

I had to return to Kamloops twice in June and I made a point of going to Caffe Motivo each time. The coffee is definitely a cut above the rest of the coffee scene in Kamloops. Stocking quality roasters and fresh coffee, definitely notice a difference in the cup. Also, allows to pick up freshly roasted beans for home use... More

great cappuccinos. Each time i go, the barista making my coffee seems to make it slightly different, which i love. Happy to experience real baristas and their signatures. They obviously have great beans to start with cause I haven't had a burnt or bitter experience yet. No gut rotting which is really appreciated as I'm grabbing a cup for the... More

The newly renamed "Cafe Motiva" is independently owned and managed. There is the same loyal crowd, seldom a free table. Free newspapers to borrow. Top-quality, wide variety of coffees and other drinks. New focus on fresh baked muffins, squares, scones...and lunch items..

The service was good and the coffee strong. I like to add a little extra cream to mine to add to the overall flavor. If you want something a little different than starbucks with a good punch try cowboy coffee, you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Rating 8.5/10, considering I am a harsh reviewer this is for a sensational cup of coffee I had, didn't try the food, for me anyone that does a good coffee should do decent food. Highly highly recommended

This is now Caffe Motivo, but Ian and Jesse are still running it and still serving great coffee. They now have French pastries created by a trained patissiere: it is as good as you'll find anywhere. Plus, the atmosphere is great.

Whenever we are in a town or city, we look for "that place" -- a local coffee place that has good lattes, some imaginative food selections (baking, sandwiches, salads), often in the context of good music and decor. Basically, quality and character which distinguishes it from the chains that you can find anyplace. We stumbled on Caffe Motivo on a... More

THis is by far the worse place you can get a coffee. I would rather make my own using my car engine to make the coffee Just disgusting!

Love visiting the coffee shop! Friendly owners along with great drinks. They esteem themselves on serving premium beans and they take the time to do it right. Love paring a panini with the soup of the day in the afternoon. (Not to mention their desserts are divine!! Both presentable AND delicious).
