Amazing comfort food and the sweetest service!

We were visiting Kelowna for a few days from Vancouver. On our first visit, we had the hobo soup and the meatloaf! We were asked if we were going to share the meatloaf and without any further questions, they split the dish in two for us. Food here is so comforting and just makes you feel good. We... read more

A group of three family members stopped in for a quick lunch. We were surprised that the wait wasn't longer, after all the reviews. The place was full, but three places quickly opened up and we were seated with glasses of cold water. Food was very good and portions generous. We had a small bowl of very tasty Hobo soup,... More

Excellent value for money; clean, attractive surroundings. I'm only sorry they have stopped doing breakfast. Looking around at what other people were eating, it all looked good. We were greeted in a very friendly manner and service was quick. Definitely a place to revisit.

Little Hobo has had a lot of good press lately so on a recent trip to Kelowna I decided to try it for lunch. I was not disappointed. The soup was delicious but the reuben sandwich was even better. Good reuben sandwiches are very hard to find in BC for some reason and I was delighted with the Little Hobo... More

Best little lunch place in town. Crystal and Stephen are so friendly and are true customer service experts. Food is cooked fresh every morning. My favorite is the Thai soup on Thursdays. So good. I've even gone so far as to recommend this place to some tourists who looked lost, looking for a place to eat. You won't be disappointed.

What service----excellent! Can't wait to go again. and Yes I returned to pay them!!!!!

Thank you!!!! We really appreciate your patronage!!

You can't beat the "homestyle" feel of this little cafe. All staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Soups are amazing!! I tried their signature Hobo soup. Portions are generous. a great stop for lunch- to dine in, or take out and go to the benches on the Boardwalk.
