Great coffee but only sandwuches

This is the best coffee we've had in Canada. The place name has changed to Cafe Motiva. Great friendly service and even terrific Almond milk cappuccinos. Perfect for coffee snobs.

If you're a coffee snob (as I am) you'll love this place! The food and treats are great too, all made in house. And a bonus, it's only a 2 minute walk from the new Sandman Signature!

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.
