Hobo cheese steak is the best I've ever had, soups are made fresh everyday and have a wide variety. The daily specials are always a nice treat.

Visited with a friend in September: had some amazing soup and sandwich combo, as well as a scone, all to share. Then took some Thai soup home for supper: it was so flavourful. Absolutely worth it. The owners were very friendly, came out to chat. Quant little place. Fast service. Will come again.

This cute little soup & sandwich delivers! Simple, delicious soup & sandwiches served by delightfully lovely owners. They say the food is made with love, and it shows. This food tastes like it's made with love, and the cheap prices are another reason why this place is, should be, and will continue to be Kelowna's #1!

This is not your typical greasy spoon diner. The food is always simple, plentiful, and well-made. Crystal and Steve, the proprietors, are friendly and efficient. A lot of the menu items are repeats - tried and true favourites, but their creativity shines on the soups, where they are always trying something new and its usually wonderful. And the price -...

Truly a surprise for us when we visited Kelowna! Most definitely a place where if you want good 'home' cooking, served by people who are just like 'family'... Little Hobo is a 'must'. The "Root Soup" was delicious, and never was there a 'sub' sandwich that had more meat in it than the cook's creation. They are most generous in... More

We chose this place because of the high rating it received being the top restaurant in Kelowna. The menu is quite simple, but the items are made from scratch and it smells like grandma's kitchen. Décor is sparse, establishment quite small, but the atmosphere at 11:30 a.m. was just hopping with all walks of life coming thru the door. Hard... More
