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 a delightful wee place---today I had the beet borscht soup with a cheese scone---I only had my debit card and they only take cash----I had none but they served me anyway without knowing me from a hole in the wall. What service----excellent! Can't wait to go again. and Yes I returned to pay them!!!!!

If you want a classic breakfast or lunch this is the place to go. Best clubhouse I've ever had. Friday is Hobo cheese steak day and its amazing.

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.

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
