Cool, calm and eclectic

Loved the decor, the way the server just understood what I could and couldn't eat. I appreciated him bringing me ingredient lists to allow me to feel safe eating. I had a great salad! Himself ate the crab cakes .. And enjoyed them thoroughly. They seem to be a thriving evening entertainment venue... read more

I have only been to the Dream Café for lunch, and everytime is has been fantastic. The grilled veggie salad is fantastic on it's own or as a side with the Tandori Chicken Wrap. There is so much to see in this restaurant ! and the wait staff is great.

The Dream café is a fantastic place to go have a quick lunch or brunch or review their guest listing for upcoming music events. They have a great side walk café that allows to relax outside and have lunch, dinner or just a drink. The environment is casual and open to everyone including families.

Been here many times and there is such amazing energy in this unique restaurant and music venue. Entertainers extraordinare never disappoint and sound quality stellar. Food and service are good. You feel like you are in the big city with this atmosphere of interesting decor. The homemade Fruit Crumble is exceptionally good!

Had breakfast here in May.. Without a doubt it was the worst eggs Benny ever. Service wasn't too bad, but food was sub par.

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. We we're also amazed by the general good audience manners celebrating the performers. Fantastic experience overall. Ps. One of us had food allergy and they... More

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.

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
