We stopped in Cranbrook at Hot Shots Cafe to grab a beverage before continuing our trip to Nelson. When we tried to find this place we had some issues because it is not off a main road, it is actually off of an alley way.


The Interior

The patio outside is huge and had so many tables everywhere and when we headed inside it was just as big. We also noticed that they have a drive thru attached to this location as well. It was very busy and almost all the tables inside were full.

The counter starts at the door where they have grab and go items and then they have a bar where you can order your drinks or food off the menu.


The Drinks

I ordered a Caramel Macchiato for $6.00 and it was made using Kootenay Coffee Roasters. It was actually quite tasty considering they add vanilla syrup to it as well.

My wife ordered a Berry Cloud Smoothie for $5.50 and it was good. It is one of the smoothest smoothies ever and you could taste the strawberry and raspberries throughout the entire drink.

My daughter ordered a Strawberry Storm Smoothie for $4.75 and it was good. There was such a wonderful strawberry flavour.

We were very happy to see that they were using paper straws for their beverages. Every little bit helps.


The Service

We only interacted with the cashier and she was friendly. I really feel like they are a grab and go kind of place.



The Hours

Monday to Wednesday – 7:00AM – 9:00PM

Thursday and Friday – 7:00AM – 10:00PM

Saturday – 7:00AM – 9:00PM

Sunday – 8:00AM – 5:00PM

The Coffee bar is open every day 1/2 hour past closing time above.



There is a parking lot with quite a few spots available, but when we were there it was quite full.


Last Words

Next time we would love to be able to try some of the food that they have and try another one of their beverages.
