Stumbled upon this cafe in the Cannery. Food was fantastic. So fresh and made on site with quality ingredients. Fresh bread, meat, even the pickles! Great service too!

Walla is the most understated but delicious eatery in Penticton. Ben the proprietor and baker gives you his love on a plate. Everything in his restaurant he has made himself. He smokes his own meat, makes his own pickles, mustards, sauces bread and treats. He has invested his time in all of it. He slow rises his breads, give you... More

Infused with loving care, everything I've ever tasted at Walla's leaves me wanting more... The only problem? If you're like me, and you appreciate the idea of leftovers for easy next day lunches, you may be out of luck. It"s not that the focaccia, almond croissants, or chocolate babkas aren't big enough, they are simply too tasty to survive beyond... More

Do yourself a favor, the next time you're in Penticton get yourself over to Walla Foods. And if you live in Penticton and haven't been here yet, then hurry up and get yourself there, but be warned, you might get addicted. I just moved to the area from Montreal, so I know good food when I taste it and I... More

Wow, what a fabulous discovery. Sign up for 'this week at Walla' and be enticed and entertained by the up coming weekly specials. Loved the 'Puttanesca Loaf' featured this week. In the Cannery -1475 Fairview Rd. Penticton. Highly recommend going for lunch.

If you ever hit Penticton in B.C. Canada, make sure you find this little gem and have the pastrami sandwich. And - be hungry. Its generous. For me it simply redefined this type of meat, and I am already looking forward to return. Although I have to fly for 12h. Seriously. Thanks to the owners!!

If you enjoy a good smoked meat sandwich, then you'll love Walla. Hidden in the back of the cannery complex, this little cafe produces the most outstanding hot pastrami sandwich you'll ever eat. Smoked and aged to perfection, the owners make everything themselves. It's a taste experience that has a multitude of flavors and layers to it and is guaranteed... More

The owner is the baker and cook, the best rye bread I have ever had. He also makes quiche's, and the healthiest chocolate fudge with cocoa type dessert you can find. He and his wife are very helpful, I have several health issues, they took time to explain which items were best for me. Great people to deal with.

Perhaps the most exciting thing at market is the wafting smells of fresh bread and pastries beckoning you to Penticton's Farmers Market Stand, Walla Foods. I am never disappointed with the consistent quality that Walla brings to the table (literally) each and every time. Returning recently from Europe, I find that Walla foods surpasses my many indulgences both here in... More
