While Startup Vernon focuses on tech businesses, we’re also big fans of shopping at local businesses in downtown Vernon. Here are some of our favourites:
Ratio Coffee – perfectly prepared coffee & pastry. Located in the old train station.
The Roxy Cafe – housed in the same downtown Vernon building on 31st Street as the historic Roxy Bakery and Delicatessen.
