Quaint little cafe that didn't disappoint!

As a roadside treat, stopping off here was a great idea as it provided 'the best coffee ever' as my three other family members announced. Everything from the cutlery to the lighting was lovely and they even had a little history about the building for you to read which i really enjoyed. The cookie I... read more

Fresh bread baked in house and delicious cured meats and wholesome soup. Friendly staff and nice relaxing location. Highly recommended.

My husband and I stopped in small town Princeton en route from Victoria to Oliver. We're glad we did. The restaurant is not flashy but the staff were genuine and the food is all homemade and excellent. It is excellent value and it's nice to support the locals.

We stopped here for lunch on a trip to Kelowna. The food is delicious! Homemade soup, homemade bread and homemade dessert! All delicious and great service too.

We were a group of five driving from Vancouver to Canmore and stumbled across this fine cafe by chance. Between us we had some fussy eaters and a man with a lot of allergies. Jerome was very kind and made us a great lunch of sandwiches, soups and salads. As Brits, including a Welshman, we were very happy at the... More

Follow the billboard on Highway 3 and go to Thomasina's for lunch or some baked goods to go ~ it is only a minute off the highway! What a great little restaurant. We started with coffee; we each received a bodum coffee press -the coffee was fabulous and hot! I had the salad with shrimp and a small bowl of... More

The smell of the freshly baked bread is enough to bring me back to Thomasina's. Couple that with the great soups and pastries and you have a recipe for success. I have stopped there frequently for lunch when passing through Princeton. So far I have never been disappointed.

We stopped on our way to Kelowna and had a bite to eat at this small gem (thanks to recommendations from my fellow Trip Advisors). The sandwiches were made with delicious home made bread and were very flavorful. Both my husband and I had the mushroom soup - delicious! Cozy ambiance, friendly owners, tasty food. A definite must do on... More

It's generally very difficult to find good coffee when travelling through small towns. Thomasina's is the exception to this rule. The hostess (Thomasina) is a friendly woman, an excellent barista, and a fine baker of pastries with a decidedly Welsh tilt. The process is on the slow side, so if you're in a hurry, don't go there, but if you... More

Some cafes and restaurants have one or two signature items, if any. Those little menu items you are not going to find anywhere else. This place seemed to have nothing but signature items. My wife and I shared a ginger carrot soup. She had a plate of assorted items featuring some sausage, cheeses, and their homemade bread. I had a... More
