“Souper soups & sweets”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

Wow, the soups here are incredible. I am not sure how the chef manages to sing his broth into a magical warming elixir of deliciousness (I think he serves cold soups like gazpacho in summer as well.) His soups layer flavours and textures so you taste seasonings, you taste herbs, the fleeting flavour of butter, the earthiness of potato skins, velvety cream, chunky vegetables, the salt of bacon fat, against a smooth liquid canvas. And speaking of canvas the art on the walls are both reasonably priced and present bonafide up and coming local talent. The showcase of treats at the front beside the till are homemade style simple treats, cookies, or slices of loafs or bars glistening with a sugar frosting. The baker? She is equally talented as the soup maker. The secret to their success? Fresh, real ingredients, and cooking that is from scratch. This place is a true labour of love and their food is excellent. Be sure to seek out this cafe that is in a house. Well-frequented by locals, because that's just how good this place is. Oh and the prices for those stellar desserts? Much lower than my other favorite cafe-bakery Bliss in Peachland. And the soups here just nudge in front of Bliss. Their sandwich specials change daily, but I just can't think beyond the stellar soups and desserts here.

“Gem of a place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

Delicious soups and sandwiches, along with goodies for dessert. My fave of late are the homemade veggie pickles served with the sandwiches--crisp and tangy with a splash of ginger--yum!

“If I lived in Summerland, this would be a regular place for me”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

This is a little cafe in Summerland, just across from the Middle School. It's owned by a couple who used to work as chefs, so they bring their culinary experience into fresh, affordable, everyday goodness.

I'm not a coffee-drinker, but my wife had a latte and it was divine. I've only every been for breakfast, so I've had their breakfast wraps and baked goods. I recommend the peanut butter hemp cookies, but everything is delicious.

Nothing is far in Summerland, but this is kind of hidden, just out of the "downtown" limits. Make sure to find it - it's well worth it.

“Great hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

This is a great little cafe favoured by locals. Sit out back under the cherry tree if you can. The sandwiches and baked goods are delicious. The freek peans and quinoa brownies are too good and the lattes are a perfect complement.
