I had lunch here one afternoon, and gotta say, this really is a nice, quaint little spot. Mom and Pop joint with some great homemade style food, they do excellent soups and sandwiches. Location is small and the menu is minimal, but it's the perfect place for a quick pit-stop and bite to eat on your travels. The items are... More

If you are expecting fine linen and cutlery here you will be disappointed. However, if you want great food prepared and served by friendly hosts this is the place to go. I have been trying to find a restaurant that served a good breakfast for years and when I noticed that Tripadvisor rated the Little Hobo restaurant # 1 we... More

This is definitely one if my favorite stops in all of my travels! Even before you try the food you will want to come back just based on what great people Steve & Crystal are! Once you try the food you won't have a choice but to come back! The food is excellent and they may have an issue with... More

A friend first took me to the Little Hobo about a month ago. it is your typical hole in the wall diner, the kind of which, I search out in every city I go. I was there for breakfast the first time. I had the eggs, bacon, hash browns, combined with the steak part of their philly cheese steak. Folks... More

Crystal and Steve are the warmest hosts, and everything is freshly made in-house. We enjoyed the best soups of our lives, returning several times during a ten day stay in Kelowna. Little Hobo is open Monday to Friday 9 am to 2 pm, so make your way there for a wholesome breakfast or lunch. A picture of the beet borscht... More

I'm not sure why or how this restaurant ranks number one in Kelowna. It is good, but not THAT good! The owners are wonderful, very cheerful and congenial. The food portions are generous and wholesome and very reasonably priced. I enjoy eating here. It's kind of like eating at my grandma's!

Stopped after reading Trip Advisor and was not disapointed. The Chicken Tai soup was point on. Everything else was great. They asked our name and remembered it. Would not have found this or had gone in without reading about it. Trip adviser works again. Thanks
