We stopped here to break up the drive between Vancouver and Kelowna. The place is hidden away at the back of town close to a vintage bridge in a traditional building with a nice front porch with tables. The food and drink was great. We had fresh lemonade, a grilled cheese sandwich and a ham and cheese panini served on... More

We stopped twice at Thomasina's on our recent trip to the Okanagan - once on the way up and again on the way back. Both times the food was very good and we ended up buying baked goods as well. I had the veggie panini both times - I really enjoyed the bread and it had a nice mixture of... More

We had a delightful wrap-up to our Okanagan vacation by taking some time to dine at Thomasina's. The Blueberry Soda Bread Muffin was delicious and filling and the Fresh Garden Salad with in-house dressing was the probably best I've had in a long time. Located in a small converted silent picture theatre the décor was fitting and suitably rustic. Now... More

The 4 of us topped in for a break on our motorcycle trip. GREAT baked goods !!! The coffee drinks are done well, coffee press and nice large double latte accompanied by homemade baked goodies (wanted to try everything) and settled on the very moist and delicious Blueberry Soda Bread Muffin (large enough to share). The staff is delightful and... More

Decided to try based on high overall rating, but was sorely disappointed. "Tapas" plate had less than a handful of sausage, a few mushy olives, a thin slice of Brie, and a hunk of bread. $10!! Daughter liked the soup, but not so excited about the grilled cheese sandwich. Too bready. How hard is it to make a grilled cheese?... More

Our aim is to please every customer all the time. A scratch bake/scratch cooking, privately owned restaurant in a small town juggles dozens of variables every day. We would appreciate it very much if you would address your concerns immediately with the owners. There is not much we can do with anonymous reviews after the fact. We would be happy... More

What a delight to step through the door and enjoy the wonderful hospitality of Thomasina's. The tapas on Friday night was the outstanding meal of our trip through Southern BC heading east from northern Washington State. Jerome graced us with great conversation and some local trails to walk. Whether on a Canadian circle trip or just passing through like us,... More

We stopped by for lunch and were expecting more based on it's ratings. Our sandwiches were very good, but we grabbed some muffins to eat in the car later. They were dry and tasteless ( 45 min later).

Amazing quality at an outwardly modest cafe/restaurant. Passionate, globally aware hosts using the best local produce they can source ensures the food is wonderful. They also keep prices real & service personal

Passing through we stumbled on this eatery. The mushroom soup, panini, and tapas were delicious. The soup was a surprise - expected a cream but it was in a delicious broth similar to a french onion. All the bread served was baked on site and fresh. The location is in an old building with a unique charm.
