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!!

I've visited the Little Hobo on several occasions, and have always found the food and service to be outstanding and also consistent. The main focus of the restaurant appears to be breakfasts and lunches. I've never visited in the morning so have never tried the breakfast items. It's usually packed at lunchtime and there's usually a queue for ordering. The... More

I decided to try this cafe with my girls during our quick trip to Kelowna after reading the reviews. So glad we did! The tiny cafe was full of customers when we arrived but we managed to get seats with the help of the staff. Chrystal was super friendly and she was so patient with us when we were trying... More
