Every time I visit Penticton, the Bench is part of my daily routine. Coffee first thing, a mid-morning burrito, paninis for lunch or a late-afternoon drop in to pick up local cheese and charcuterie to go with the wines we've found that day. Love it.

We just had a light snack and coffee but the breakfast burrito looks delish and the woman beside said that it was. I enjoy the ambience and friendly environment. Often crowded but then good places are in the summer. I like the patio too but...More

Good selection of breakfast and panini meals and the baked items looked fantastic. I had the sunny breakfast and my partner had the egg sandwich, with sides of lattes, mine made with coconut milk, which I appreciate since a lot of places only offer soy....More
