We enjoyed great garden wraps, delicious coffee, and a to die for date square on their back patio under the shade of trees and an umbrella. Perfect for a hot day! We were full so did not need the further cooling effect of their great ice cream ( which we have enjoyed on other visits). At Friesens, you order off... More

Great breakfast buffet, eggs on order, bennie, pankake, waffle, pirogues, fruit compote, etc. Possible to order gluten free bread. The small bakery shop inside has local honey, jam, pies, jelly and homemade frozen meals. Good value!

Went for the brunch, was quite disappointed. The brunch was $19.95 per person, and very small compared to other brunch buffets. The bacon and sausages were quite underdone for our taste, so we passed on what we normally enjoy. Coffee was wonderful, since it was Cherry Hill coffee. Personally, we will not be going back, as we get a far... More

Saturday and Sunday breakfast buffet begins at 9:00. Make a reservation, just to make sure you get a table. In warmer weather, the patio is a lovely spot to sit and relax over breakfast or lunch. The coffee is great and the food is scrumptious.

I visited Vernon a while ago, and tried to find a place where I could sit and have a coffee outside in nice surroundings. I could only find places where you have to either sit inside, or sit outside in a parking lot, or by a road with the sound of traffic. I finally discovered Friesen’s Country Gardens. I love... More

We joined friends for a brunch May 23, 2016. 5 of us all enjoyed our meals. The food was very good, with large portions at a reasonable price. We all had the sausage or bacon with eggs, hash browns and homemade toast (squirrelly, sourdough or regular). The place is busy but we called ahead for a table and had a... More

I always go to Friesen's for breakfast and today I recommended it to my friend for a late afternoon breakfast because their farmers sausage is amazing and eggs always done exactly how you like... But today I had a salad and a bowl of soup. The borscht was not as good as it usually is and was not very hot... More

When you walk in, you feel like you've walked into your grandma's kitchen. And the super fresh food matches those expectations. I went there for lunch with some colleagues and everything was perfect. The veggie wrap and borscht were both fresh and plentiful. And reasonably priced. I travel a lot and visit many restaurants around the world. It's really nice... More

The good home town cooking all the preserves pies and fresh baked goods! The fresh biscuits did it for me! Loved them instead of English muffins for my eggs Benedict.
