The best little sandwich shop on the planet!

The owners of fancy, overpriced Kelowna places like Ricardo's, Vintage, Summerhill and the rest of the "fine dining" establishments (where the millennial waiter shoots daggers at you on the way out if he doesn't get a $50 tip for mostly ignoring you through the meal) should send their entire staff... read more

This is a must stop shop if you're hungry and want a local, friendly family run lunch place. Delicious soups and sandwiches, huge portion sizes and inexpensive!! Plus they have an iou wall of you don't have cash** which is all they accept for payment.

I have been to this restaurant several times now and each time I try something better than the last thing I tried... which is hard to believe because it is excellent every time! I tried the "holiday" sandwich today, and it did not disappoint... fresh whole wheat bread, with REAL turkey (cooked fresh early this morning) and stuffing almost as... More

Small but cozy spot in downtown Kelowna. Run by a husband and wife team. Very friendly. Daily specials priced fairly. Takeout or eat in, when space available.

My husband and I ate here based on trip advisors ratings and we weren't disappointed. The food is simple but awesome with hearty portions, exactly my style. The place is small but they keep the lines moving. All and all great homecooked food at affordable prices.

If you don't come early, expect to wait in line. This is the same shop that was featured on "YOu gotta eat here". Today I had Borscht and a biscuit and it is always so good.

Come early (11:30am) or risk missing out on the daily specials. All this food is homemade every morning by the owners, and it gets REALLY busy right around noon. People are sometimes lined up out the door! The best thing to do to understand the menu is to find The Little Hobo on facebook, as the menu is posted daily... More

We finally made it here, after reading about this "famous" place! We were a party of 4 rookies. Upon entering, it was a bit overwhelming. Firstly, we were finally here...yeah! Secondly, how does this place work? There was a line-up as well as an empty table for four. Thankfully the lovely hostess (so sorry we didn't get her name) gave... More
