Excellent quality home cooking, wonderful people!

This restaurant is a delight, from the quality of the hearty, home-cooked food (their butter chicken and mulligatawny soups are awesome), to the friendly welcoming owners and their smiling helpful assistants. Pricing is very reasonable, you can't go wrong.

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

We needed a light lunch before going to a movie, and knowing how popular Little Hobo is, went early. Not early enough, apparently. Already full before 11:30, one grabbed a table when one became available, the other lined up. Ordering two bowls of soup, the results were uneven. Both were generous and inexpensive. The cabbage borscht was reported as excellent.... More

Enjoy a large bowl of beet borcht and savory scone. Food was good but just good. No coffee available and water machine was empty. Something was lacking.

The warmest environment with kind people. The food is simple but delicious. Sandwiches are yummy and soups are incredible. The price are very reasonable for the amount and quality. We had lunch here and we were thinking to choose between sandwiches and meat loaf. We settled for sandwich. But the lady overheard us and gave us a huge meat loaf... More

This is a small little eatery just off the beaten path on a side street. Lately, they were voted best lunch, or best food in Kelowna! BUT, that has made it hard to get in! I generally eat at odd times, so it isn't too bad in the off hours. When it isn't busy, staff is particularly friendly, interested. They... More

Staying in Kelowna while my mother had triple bypass surgery and saw this place on the news one morning. My father and I decided to try it for lunch. We weren't disappointed. He had the Hobo soup, which wasn't full of salt like other soups from other restaurants. It was so good. I had the quinoa salad. It was plentiful... More
