I only moved to Kelowna a few months ago and every person I talked to recommended this place, which is great because it's only a block from my office. I am a huge soup person and I haven't had a single one there I haven't LOVED. Honestly! Pair it with one of their big biscuits with butter and it's the... More

Having never been to Kelowna before, I wanted to find a simple lunch. Randomly parked up close to The Hobo and wandered over, it looked like a basic sandwich and soup place. They had 5 or so soups to choose from, I went for "The Hobo" which was a vegetable/minced beef soup. It was absolutely delicious, and the small portion... More

It was my first time coming over to this restaurant as I'm from out of town and wanted to check it out because of the reviews. It did not dissapoint! The service is awesome and the food was great! I didn't know it was cash only and only had brought my debit card. The lady said not to worry and... More

Little Hobo consistently comes up on top in Trip Advisor Kelowna dining reviews, ahead of some pretty good Kelowna finer dining restaurants. To do this they must be doing something right. And, indeed they are. Little Hobo offers morning to mid-day fare. Great portions. Fair prices. Really good food. All served from owners with a genuine, sincere and caring approach... More

Hobo cheese steak is the best I've ever had, soups are made fresh everyday and have a wide variety. The daily specials are always a nice treat.

Visited with a friend in September: had some amazing soup and sandwich combo, as well as a scone, all to share. Then took some Thai soup home for supper: it was so flavourful. Absolutely worth it. The owners were very friendly, came out to chat. Quant little place. Fast service. Will come again.

This cute little soup & sandwich delivers! Simple, delicious soup & sandwiches served by delightfully lovely owners. They say the food is made with love, and it shows. This food tastes like it's made with love, and the cheap prices are another reason why this place is, should be, and will continue to be Kelowna's #1!

This is not your typical greasy spoon diner. The food is always simple, plentiful, and well-made. Crystal and Steve, the proprietors, are friendly and efficient. A lot of the menu items are repeats - tried and true favourites, but their creativity shines on the soups, where they are always trying something new and its usually wonderful. And the price -...
