We checked Trip Advisor for restaurants in Kelowna and had to try the top rated, of course. A small hole in the wall with soup and sandwiches. We 4 got sandwiches for lunch and an order of shepherds pie. Ooh, mama. That some pie!! Best tasting I have eaten in recent years and a portion for two masquerading as for... More

Went on a Friday because they were offering a philly and I had been wanting to try the place because it's a local food landmark. The Philly was good, other than a little too salty, but the main attraction is the hometown feel and the great friendly staff! remember it is cash only!

Saw the little hobo on trip advisor to figured we would give it a shot. The lady and gent at the counter were beyond friendly with casual conversation and good local tips on what to see and do. Not something you always get from someone working in a sandwich shop. The food was great and reasonably priced. Location was only... More

Home cooked style soup and sandwich place that serves a mean portion. Everything about this place makes it deserve 5 stars! The friendly lady there also gave us suggestions as to where to go. 500/5 stars if I could!

The service was awesome, friendly, helpful and not in just that "we have to be nice to you because... More

We didn't know their hours and got there an hour and a half after closing. We were looking through the window just to see what it looked like inside. The owners were inside and called us in. Even though they had been closed for an hour and a half, they insisted on setting set us up with a great late... More

This was little place was on my list to visit on our trip. We already ate breakfast and went for chai lattes, but we made room to have some homemade chilli and chowder! The biscuit was great too. Definitely worth the stop and you get a huge portion for what you pay for!!!
