All that needs to be said, is that you haven't been to the Little Hobo, you are missing out! Hard to pick a favorite. You'll never find another place like it in today's world.

Amazing place. It is very simple on the outside but the food is hearty, comes in large portions and is well priced. The owner came around to each table personally and made sure that every was doing well. They remember your name and make you visit very enjoyable.

I had previously read that the Little Hobo was the highest rated restaurant not only in Kelowna, but in all of BC, so I had to try it. From the outside it looks like a little hole in the wall cafe, and it's quite small and unassuming on the inside as well. A friend who had been there before(and loved... More

The soup Is great in here and the service is fab. We didn't have cash and the lady just wrote us a tab and we were able to come back and pay later. Yummy and definitely recommend for a casual cheap lunch.

After all the hype, we were incredibly excited to visit the little hobo. After waiting in an unreasonably managed line, we paid and sat down in the dining area. Not only is the area uncomfortable and too small, my family and I saw BUGS; specifically ants (dead and alive) in this 'restaurants' dining area. C'mon, that cannot be food safe!... More

Hi Sam... Thank you for taking the time to write a review on Trip Advisor... Crystal here responding. As you have pointed out the line has been long recently and the main door has been opening a lot! I will look into the comment that you saw ants in the main area of the restaurant and deal with it immediately!!!... More

I went to Little Hobo based on everyone elses reviews for this charming little cafe and they were spot on. I got a lovely, warm welcome and had a bowl of beets and cabbage soup which was so delicious! It's nice to eat something that is homemade and is so worth the price! I wish I had been more hungry...

We went here because we saw online that it was rated the best place in BC to eat. When we got there, there was a huge line and the place was packed! It is a no-frills type place so if you are picky about environment it is not the place for you! The kitchen is right at the counter and... More
