The Patio At Lake Breeze is located at Lake Breeze Vineyards in beautiful Naramata, BC. Just twelve kilometres north of Penticton, you can find the outdoor dining restaurant off of Naramata Road in the south central Okanagan Valley.
On the worldwide scale, Lake Breeze is a relatively small winery, but it does boast several award winning wines, and offers lunch at The Patio in one of the prettiest settings anywhere. The dining area is well shaded with green foliage, colourful flowers and large table-umbrellas. On a sweltering hot day in the Okanagan, shade is really a bonus. Calming background music creates a lovely ambiance, while the friendly resident winery dog wanders in and out of the patio.
Acclaimed Chef Mark Ashton showcases his passion for artful presentation of food, partnered with Lake Breeze wines. His philosophy is accenting full bodied flavour without complication; choosing products at their peak; and creating tastes to interest and entice. Chef Ashton’s expertly created lunch menu offers fresh, seasonally inspired local ingredients.
Roasted Chicken Breast & Blended Greens ($16.00) – A lovely fresh salad of goat cheese, mixed greens, toasted almonds, fresh blackberries and blueberries, sliced yellow bell peppers, moist chicken, with a grilled apple brandy thyme vinaigrette.
Sirloin Burger with Cambozola Cheese ($17.00) – Cabernet braised sweet red onions, warm and creamy cambozola, perfectly-cooked top sirloin beef patty, and lettuce on a freshly baked rosemary & black pepper bun. (All of the bread at Lake Breeze is baked fresh, in-house everyday, including the burger buns and flatbreads). Served with a baked potato salad deliciously flavoured with course-grain dijon mustard.
The Patio At Lake Breeze is a must-do during your tour of the Okanagan vino-country. Food and service are superb; the setting is spectacular and so are their wines. I really enjoy their intensely fruity and aromatic Pinot Blanc, which is Lake Breeze’s signature wine and a consistent award winner. With clean and fresh crisp apple and citrus aromas, we even purchased a few bottles for friends as gifts.
**The Patio At Lake Breeze is a seasonal restaurant that is only open for lunch from 11:30am to 3:30pm from May 1st through mid-October.
