Go for the breakfast, not the salad

I always go to Friesen's for breakfast and today I recommended it to my friend for a late afternoon breakfast because their farmers sausage is amazing and eggs always done exactly how you like... But today I had a salad and a bowl of soup. The borscht was not as good as it usually is and was not... read more

When you walk in, you feel like you've walked into your grandma's kitchen. And the super fresh food matches those expectations. I went there for lunch with some colleagues and everything was perfect. The veggie wrap and borscht were both fresh and plentiful. And reasonably priced. I travel a lot and visit many restaurants around the world. It's really nice... More

The good home town cooking all the preserves pies and fresh baked goods! The fresh biscuits did it for me! Loved them instead of English muffins for my eggs Benedict.

We checked Friesen's out early on a Sunday morning and found that part of the appeal is the drive - the countryside is beautiful and the cafe has its own quirky charm. Overall, I would say that the food is pretty good but not outstanding. The hash browns are not the best I've had, but the toast (made from house-made... More

This is a small restaurant on the way to Lumby, BC and worth a stop. The atmosphere is warm with friendly service. They also have fruit and veggies for sale . Canned goods are also provided. I have tasted numerous foods but this time I splurged on their cinnamon buns. Delicious as they had just enough raisins and sauce to... More

Friesen's is a quaint little restaurant/bakery in the small community of Coldstream, BC, and the food there reflects the small town attitude. I ordered the Farmer's sausage and egg breakfast, and my date ordered the eggs benedict breakfast. Service was slow as there was also a buffet available and the cooks were making sure the trays were full for the... More

Soup was piping hot and very flavourful. Soup choices change daily. Today I had sausage, barley and veggie soup. Soup is served with freshly baked biscuits. I always have soup since it is made from scratch and a good sized serving. I think that the price is very reasonable for such freshly made food. There is jam on the tables,... More

The food was very good. I had the grilled cheese and it was very good the bread was fresh, (They make almost everything from scratch). The cheese was great and not greasy like some grilled cheeses I've had. They even make the ketchup in house fresh, and it really make the meal that much more enjoyable. How ever the grilled... More
