On a cold January Saturday morning, my wife and two sons were told by Penticton Honda that the warranty work they said we needed meant we had to walk from their dealership to a local restaurant (no shuttles or courtesy cars available for people on warranty work on a Saturday). As we headed out the hail started, then the rain.... More

I moved away from Penticton in September and knew that I would be missing this place terribly (and my friends of course), however, I was not prepared in how much. I live in Seattle and though there are loads of restaurants and places, no one makes bread the way Ben does at Walla. Thankfully, the owner and his wife are... More

We stopped at the Walla Bakery and Café while staying in Penticton. Its a little place in a brewery warehouse and we thought we'd try it out as per tripadvisor reviews. Good choice ! Its kinda out of the way place and there was just a few misc shops in the mall area but this place did have excellent bakery... More

Just popped in to pick up bread, as all the locals were raving about it. Wow! Tried a Cranberry, Walnut loaf which was historic and some Rosemary, Sea Salt Foccacia buns which were so delicious I had to take a bag for all my neighbors to try! The baker makes his own butter puff pastry from scratch and the taste... More

The owner Ben was so soft-spoken and kind. We couldn't come back for the lunch so he gave us a taste of his pastrami and it was sooooo good. He also gave us a focaccia bun to try and it also was incredible so we bought some of those as well as one of his chocolate flourless cakes. WOW! Sooooo... More

I was visiting a friend and wanted to treat her and her family for dinner. She didn't want to go out and eat so we decided to get some food to take home. After reading the reviews from Tripadvisor and checking out their website we decided to go here. The owner was extremely friendly and accommodating and we ended up... More

We were not hungry but we specially stop by in this place because I digged into the Tripadvisor! Restaurant is small but very well decorated. Food is unusual, as minimum, for not big towns in US. Owners are very friendly. We were alone and spoke almost hour. My son ate soup and mushroom sandwich. We also ordered couple cakes. All... More

Ok, I admit, I am a total foodie and a chocolate cake dessert snob. Tough combo. I remembered the fabulous foods at Walla from 3 years ago, stopped in Penticton on my way back from Calgary and was in for a real treat. The house smoked pastrami sandwich made at Walla was simply the best I have ever had. The... More

We went there at 250 pm on Saturday for a late lunch. Although the Cafe usually closed at 3 and the waitress had gone home, our group of six were welcomed by the owners with a big smile. We ordered some baked goods, some soup and they were terrific. The owner liked to serve the food nicely and he cut... More

With my task of organizing a post wedding breakfast for about 80 guests July 27th (in which I was also an out of town guest), I sought to find a bakery that would cater a selection of baked goods that would “wow” a foodie like me. Being from Vancouver where the choice is immense and having traveled to countries where... More
