Painted Pony Cafe in Kamloops serves up Aboriginal fare
Carol, Evelyn and Lacey Camille are cooking and serving their traditional First Nations recipes in their very own café in Kamloops. The place started as a dream, 20 years ago. The CBC’s Samantha Garvey talks with the women.
When the doors opened at the Painted Pony cafe in Kamloops, it was the realization of a dream two decades in the making.
Carol Camille and her mother-in-law Evelyn Camille had the idea 20 years ago.
“[We] decided that we were going to open a restaurant on the reserve and we found a location, but then we were told no, just a flat out no,” Carol Camille told Daybreak Kamloops’ Samantha Garvey.
This spring, the dream resurfaced, and Camille started looking for another location. She ended up at 705 Victoria Street in downtown Kamloops.
