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

My husband and I stopped in while getting groceries from Princeton, as we were camping at Missezula Lake. We are so happy we stumbled upon this wonderful little place! We sat outside and enjoyed breakfast and coffee made by the nice fellow working that day. It was all homemade and very good. I had to buy the homemade macaroons, as... More

Stopped for a light lunch on way to Vancouver. Very pleasantly surprised by the OLD World feel and the soft French music coming over the speakers. The food was amazing! Highly recommend!

We stopped here on our way from Osoyoos to Vancouver. Picked the place by chance and were very impressed with the coffee quality. Didn't heat anything but it all looked and sounded yum. Very friendly owner/staff and the quirky interior was charming.

En route from Osoyoos back home to Vancouver, we decided to give this coffee shop a try based on the inviting highway signage. We were very impressed by the coffee, the baked goods and the general feel to the place. This tastefully done coffee shop was reminiscent of a trendy shop you may find on Main/Commercial. We recommend.

Stopped here for coffee and a snack on wat to the Okanogan. Had a sampler of fresh baking (macaroon, tart and oatmeal cookie) and a couple of lattes. It was all very good with pleasant service and outdoor seating.
