We live close and would regularly go for Sunday brunch and the occasional lunch. The brunch used to be fantastic but sadly many of the items such as eggs Benedict are not included. Yet year after year prices go up to the point where we rarely ,if ever, go there anymore.

Tucked away in a rural setting yet only minutes from Vernon, Friesen's is a great find. We've been on the road for over a month and have been eating in many restaurants along the way. Our bodies were at the point of saying, No More Restaurant Food! when we found Friesen's. We had a wonderful, truly home-cooked breakfast. Do order... More

We visited Friesen's last weekend for the first time. A quaint and quiet place with a lot of country charm. The breakfast was delicious with a generous portion of eggs, potatoes and bacon. The staff was friendly and quick. The place also acts as a store with lots of homemade jams, breads and baking along with homemade frozen dinner items... More

We travel to the OK every year. Every year we have brunch at Friesen's. Every year the it changes for the worse. Kids brunch is like $12 if you are 11 yr old hulking boy or a 4 yr old petite girl. They previously charged children $1 per year of age. Quite reasonable. They previously had eggs Benedict on the... More

We were taking a day trip around the top of Lake Okanagan from Kelowna and had planned on having lunch in or around Vernon, so I looked through various reviews in TA. Friesens sounded interesting and not far off teh direct route from Vernon to Kelowna, so we decided to give it a try. We were very happy with food,... More

This is a fabulous restaurant for old fashioned cooking by mom! The food is excellent. We really enjoy the patio, so inviting. The only negative things I can say is that the bathrooms need updating and the outdoor cooking area with the bar-b-que needs a good clean/scrub down very badly. Grease and cobwebs, not so inviting. I hope the owners... More

We spend 3 or 4 visits each year in Vernon and make a breakfast at Friesen's a must. We love the garden and the food is always fresh, well prepared and delicious. The staff are friendly and helpful. We leave with more treats--homemade soups, jams and breads. The washroom could use a little updating but it's clean.
