A cozy moroccan decor, great food and service and an amazing live music show.

We went to celebrate my birthday to a venue that offered two of my favourite things: music and food. First time for us but won't be the last. We got hooked! Great ambiance and vibes.

This place ranked in the top 3 in Canada for venues seating [fewer than 150 people]The number of people I'm not sure about.I have been to the Dream more than 50 times and have never been disappointed.The food is good,service is above and beyond,and the entertainment[blues,jazz,folk,country,etc]leaves little room for complaints.It is Penticton's JEWEL.

I heard that a friend's band from Alberta was playing at the Dream Cafe in Penticton,which is only a few hours from home in Vancouver and I decided I could use a couple of days away, so off I hopped. After a lovely day lazing around town I headed over to the Cafe for dinner and the show. I was... More

NO, it's not a dream…it's the Dream Cafe!! Picture this - if you're not a local. Cosy, multi-layered venue - not a 'bad' seat in the house, visually or acoustically. Frequently, there are musicians who are recognized nationally and internationally - blues, jazz, r and b, and the like. Local talent is also showcased. Musicians who have music in their... More

We have attended several music shows at this downtown Penticton restaurant, located on colorful Front Street.....an appropriate location for this restaurant/entertainment venue. Pierre manages to fill the house the majority of nights as he brings in fabulous musical entertainers and groups. The décor says it all and is associated with what this place stands for in Penticton. Shows all have... More

Went to the Dream Cafe recently and had a wonderful time. Great food and an outstanding performance by Justin Glibbery and his group. The venue is nice and intimate so you really get into the music and the atmosphere. Such a fun evening.

We went to Dream Café for a night of some blues from a dear friend of ours who was touring through BC. We decided to have dinner there too, the reservation for dinner gives you seating for the show.....wonderful idea. And the whole evening proved to be a wonderful experience. The food was so good, the staff very helpful &... More

This funky bistro is renowned for the Biggest names coming for intimate evenings with 120 people in the audience. Kaeshammer, Mitchell, etc. etc. and new talent too. Great food, cheap cover [don't tell!] - you will never be disappointed whenever you come. Don't visit Penticton without coming here for supper and a gig.
