In 2008 two European families, who’d become friends in Vancouver, sat in a small venue at Big White and decided this would be a great place to raise a family and offer something different on the coffee & food scene. After several months of passionate discussions, “Little Globe” was born in Trappers Crossing, originally in the current home of Underground Pizza. 13 seasons later, those two families of 5 little boys are all expert skiers and enjoyed the mountain childhood of your dreams! Jude & Paul have remained at the helm ever since, and with the help over the years of four talented Executive Chefs and two awesome General Managers, Globe has grown in its current venue to a much loved hang out at Big White. We now welcome our regular locals and visiting tourists through all the seasons. We started to offer a different kind of Italian coffee and our style of dining began as “Tapas” originating in Spain and true to its roots. But as Big White’s first and original Tapas Bar, we are influenced by our travels and have evolved our love of all things Mediterranean with a wider menu to appeal to all tastes. Our philosophy for dining is simply this: the warmest of welcomes, globally inspired simply presented food that wows, that can be shared with friends & family, and that delights your taste buds! We combine this with indulgent desserts like our world famous Tabletop S’mores, creative cocktails & Sangrias, local VQA wines showcasing the best of the Okanagan Valley, a live music scene in a warm and cosy decor, the friendliest of staff, and conversation that flows. Welcome to our home from home.
Authentic Italian espresso relies on a crafted blending of the finest Arabica coffee from a variety of sources. This artisan tradition results in a flavor experience that is more complex and sophisticated than any of its individual, single-origin parts. For over three generations, the Bizzarri family has been evolving and improving on the enduring craft of Italian espresso, combining the harmonious artistry of the blend with the precise science of the roast to create signature blends that reflect the passion and personality at the heart of the Italian caffè experience. Globe is proud to partner with Caffe Umbria and bring you the Bizarri family tradition and a little bit of Italy to our mountain top Café. Start your day at Globe with a fine Cappuccino, enjoy an espresso martini with a kick, or indulge in a Caffe Umbria Tiramisu…..because coffee is where Globe began our story.
