Where do I start? It shows that the owners care so much about their customers! We were treated immediately with friendly conversation when entered and offered samples of the daily soups. The chili is the best thing I have EVER tasted. The Reuben I ordered had almost as much meat as the sandwich I had at the Carnegie Deli in... More

This was my first visit to Kelowna and I had to try this lunch spot, hearing that it offered the best lunch in BC. The place is very small and very busy and I can tell a lot of the customers were regulars. We were greeted like old friends by the staff there, even though it was our first time.... More

We finally stopped by here to eat last week & will definitely be repeat customers. Was pleasantly surprised not only by the quality of the food but also by the large portion sizes at a very good price. They even gave my 3 year old a free bowl of soup & a large cookie for free. Customer service was fabulous!!!

If you want lunch at a place where the owners put their heart & soul into the food and customer service, this is it! Steve & Crystal are amazing people with big hearts and they know how to cook. Everyday there is a selection of awesome home cooked soups to go with a daily special or one of the great... More

I've been in the customer service industry for over 20 years and this place is the best I've have ever seen. The food is fantastic as well. I'm in Kelowna for a week and have eaten here three times already. Great job

The couple that run this place get us at 3am every day and make several (3-5) homemade soups, a special sandwich, and a special meal daily and salads. They have big portions, great home made cooking taste and excellent prices. A big bowl of soup is only $6. The service is outstanding and friendly. CASH only! Grab some frozen soups... More

It is hard to say that I was "pleasantly surprised" by Little Hobo Soup & Sandwich because I expected an exceptional meal and service after reading reviews on TripAdvisor but I was!

I was ordering a large chilli. Crystal, the owner, suggested that she would put a small portion in the bowl and if I wanted a large she would go further. I took the small and didn't quite finish that! The wonderful "biscuit " that came with it matched the size. My friends had soups and sandwiches which were similarly impressive.
