We loved our lunch at Little hobo. Delicious sandwiches and amazing, friendly, "Ma and Pa" service. Please note: they are cash only, but there is a TD and RBC close by. Open 10-2 only. Also: certain menu items are only available on certain days (we missed perogies, darn!) Would totally recommend this place to anyone for a nice lunch.

Went here for lunch today on a whim after reading the other reviews. I would totally recommend to eat here. The sandwiches were huge! All the sandwiches came with chips and my kids each got a huge piece of puffed wheat squares, which were super yummy. The staff were very friendly and you could tell they care about their customers,... More

After reading some of the reviews I decided I needed to try Little Hobo and I'm certainly glad I did! First the owner, Crystal introduced herself and husband to me, asked my name & where I was from before even taking my order. She is genuinely a very nice person. So is the one waitress I had contact with, but... More

The Littlest Hobo comes to mind every time I think of this place. It is not overly fancy, but a great place to enjoy a bite and coffee with friends.

This phenomenal little family business is unlike any other. I quickly learned that the owners are named Crystal and Steve and that they are genuine, kind and serve up some seriously delicious food. Their daily homemade soups are my personal favourite. You are guaranteed to leave with a full belly and heart.

My lunch was home cooked and delicious. It's a bit crowded, but good news - they are moving to a bigger location in October! Can't wait!

I came in while on a business trip after reading the great reviews - this place, and Crystal, did not disappoint! It was near closing time, which I didn't know, but I ordered a tuna melt. As I waited Crystal brought me a sample of the Doukhobor Borscht and it was delicious. I ate my tuna melt, also great, but... More

We arrived after the restaurant had closed for lunch. However, the owner invited us in and made our lunch anyway. Great, friendly service. Food is fresh and portions are generous. You can tell this owner run cafe cares about serving quality food--it shows!!
