“OK Food - Employee Issue”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Our first time in Hope, a lovely small town along the Fraser River. Stopped in to Sharon's hoping to capture a little more of that quaint hometown feel. It was dated and a bit rustic as one could plainly see from the storefront and that was ok as we were just looking for a light lunch. However, due to the crowd waiting to be seated we ordered to go and planned to eat across the street in Hope's lovely Memorial Park.

Here's where the employee issue came in. About 5 minutes after ordering our food TO GO the kitchen staff Sharon(?) asked if our order was "to go" so we said "yes" so Sharon(?) told the waitress to remember she needed to write that on the order form. The waitress, right in front of us mind you, told her we never told her we wanted it "to go". Then, when the take out was ready my wife observed the waitress go into the kitchen, handle our food with her unwashed hands and wrap it. My wife then called her over and told her she observed this and wanted the food prepared again. The waitress vocally denied she ever touched the food. Sharon(?) had no comment.

In lieu of making a scene in front of other folks waiting to get in we paid and left which was probably not the way to have handled it. What food we did eat was unremarkable.

“Lovely ladies, limited menu”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Homey feeling, very pleasant staff. No gluten free or paleo/primal options for those on modified diets. Run of the mill deli sandwiches, though they were made fresh and they don't skimp on the fillings. If you know that all you want is soup, sandwich and coffee, they have an $8 deal that is pretty hard to beat. Be warned - they serve ripple chips as a side to their sandwiches - not the nutrition I need to fuel my day.

“Cheap, clean, ample, simple food in a small town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Sharon's is bright with big windows and varnished wood picnic style tables. There is a lunch soup and sandwich special which includes coffee or tea, self-serve. The soup was ahamburger type soup, filling and tasty and the sandwich was a regular ham and cheese with lots of lettuce and tomato. Coffee is served in a big urn, help yourself. the whole experience was friendly
and downphome. She also has deli meats and cheeses to take away and make your own lunch. It's nice to find a decent place to eat when you're on the road in a small town.
