We buy the best gluten-free bread in Kelowna here at the Specialty Bakery. It is delicious. Bread Co.'s version (on Bernard Ave.) comes second. I looked around and tried the chocolate cake (average) and coffee (average). There are many other appealing items, pies, cakes and quiches. We will try some the next time. The basic breakfast buffet is $12.00 for... More

Great eggs Benedict; fresh, freshfreshfresh in-season Okanagan fruit, good choice of coffees, and cinnamon rolls I'd swear are delivered by angels. It's a BAKERY, too, so there's scads of take-home quiche, breads, muffins (including some gluten-free choices). The four of us left, happily groaning. I'll be back!

My husband and I each ordered a sandwich. The bread was fresh. My husbands turkey Panini had 2 slices of turkey on it and 2 thin slices of bacon on it for 12.50. For that price I can order something in a restaurant with full service. My sandwich was ok but it was 7.69. I prefer subway and I get... More

Thank you for your comments. We take great pride in what we serve our customers here at the Bistro. Comments help us improve our menu and customer service. At $12.50 I believe you are referring to our “Grilled Turkey with Bacon & Provolone Cheese” made on a freshly baked Panini bun. To be fair, this sandwich does come with a... More

Where to start, this location really has me going in different directions. Let's start with the good...the baked items, breads, desserts and some a la carte items are very good. I love the marble rye and dark rye breads. Had the burger one day and it was good, bun and patty were house made. Staff are pleasant for the most... More

Saw some great reviews of this lil hole in the wall and thought I better give it a try. Absolutely no regrets! The Saturday brunch buffet was way to good and to end it we tried their infamous Kelownut. This thing is to die for! We literally brought a giant box home! They also have lots of fresh bread options... More

Popped in for brunch this Saturday and we were very impressed. The buffet was stocked with all of our brunch cravings and the staff were very welcoming. The baked goods will definitely keep us coming back. They have amazing fresh bread and desserts baked daily, even a gluten free option! To save the best for last I must highly recommend... More

I had read lots of reviews about the breakfast buffet. The potatoes were not very good. The buffet was small. I liked the different coffees they had and they had fresh fruit with baking etc. The staff were inattentive and we weren't greeted or shown where to sit. There are better breakfasts in Kelowna. I won't come back .

Sorry to learn of your disappointment. Our Saturday Breakfast Buffet is very popular. We promote casual dining and a 'help yourself' coffee station with five varieties of coffees. We offer a good selection of our pastries, slices and cinnamon buns, as well as fresh fruit and a mousse. Our hot breakfast buffet features eggs—including Eggs Benedict—two varieties of hash browns,... More
