Fabulous little spot to get home made soups

This is a fabulous little spot that has a variety of tasty soups and sandwiches daily, all homemade. The owners are so friendly, tasty generous portions. I have to go back!

The homemade soups here are amazing! The hobo soup is my favourite, they have frozen soup you can buy and take home as well, I bought the doukabour borsch and brought home to my wife, it was very tasty. Their Hobo cheesesteak sandwich on Fridays is the best I ever have tried!

WOW!!! Today was my first time here and will not be my last! My husband and son were with me and they were so super nice and the food was awesome! My 2.5 year old son loved the meatloaf. I hate broccoli and cheese soup (or at least I thought I did) until I tried my son's who loves broccoli... More

I have eaten at the Hobo a few times and it is now my "go to" restaurant for lunch in downtown Kelowna. Delicious home made food, generous portions and very reasonably priced! My colleagues at the office love it too! Well done Crystal and Steve....we will be back!

Went to Little Hobo for lunch for the first time. They have a good menu, clean, food was GREAT and so were the portions! Good price as well. The owners are super friendly, even remembered my name on the way out. Great service too. Just remember to bring cash. No credit or debit.

Driven past it so many times either heading to a job, appointment or somewhere else for lunch. This time, I made a purpose to go for lunch. Small place with around 9 tables/ 30 some odd seats plus around 6 or 7 bar/ counter seats facing towards the windows and Lawrence Ave. The place was packed, and a steady stream... More

I only moved to Kelowna a few months ago and every person I talked to recommended this place, which is great because it's only a block from my office. I am a huge soup person and I haven't had a single one there I haven't LOVED. Honestly! Pair it with one of their big biscuits with butter and it's the... More

Having never been to Kelowna before, I wanted to find a simple lunch. Randomly parked up close to The Hobo and wandered over, it looked like a basic sandwich and soup place. They had 5 or so soups to choose from, I went for "The Hobo" which was a vegetable/minced beef soup. It was absolutely delicious, and the small portion... More

Little Hobo consistently comes up on top in Trip Advisor Kelowna dining reviews, ahead of some pretty good Kelowna finer dining restaurants. To do this they must be doing something right. And, indeed they are. Little Hobo offers morning to mid-day fare. Great portions. Fair prices. Really good food. All served from owners with a genuine, sincere and caring approach... More
