Don't go here if you are on a diet. You will not be able to resist the temptations and they are plentiful. Wouda's has a variety of breads each day, a fully stocked "sweets" counter with an array of cookies, squares and tarts. They offer daily lunch specials and have a house-made granola that is fabulous.

Wouda's is in a small mall with a meat market and fish store.

This is definitely the best bakery in the Okanagan Valley. A true dutch bakery (owners from Holland themselves!), everything we tried here was truly wonderful. Their breads are fresh, and if you can get your hands on a sugar-loaf (toasted with butter at home), you won't be disappointed! Cookies, pastries, squares, everything you need for every type of person and taste! Please do watch out for the cheesecake though.... especially their personal sized turtle cheesecakes... they're dangerous! By that I mean, we went back later in the week for a 2nd!!! hahaa!!! The chocolate ganache cake is also amazing, and as another reviewer wrote, it really does weigh a tonne!
Their lunches are really tasty, and really well priced. They are always trying out new specials, and trying out new sandwiches.
Saturday mornings they have dutch mini-pancakes on for breakfast. These "poffertjes" are fun and tasty, and everyone in the family will love them! The staff are friendly, you might even get a visit from the owners themselves!!
On top of all that, they do special orders, birthday cakes, wedding cakes, you name it. If you ask for it, they'll certainly try to accomodate any special occasion! They even try to cater to allergies and food intolerances. Just ask them and they'll try their best to help you out!
Some reviewers write that the only bad thing about this bakery is its location - it's in the corner of a plaza, with a big red canopy advertising a market, bakery and deli. The way I look at it is: If they were in a more obvious spot, the Wouda's Bakery would be way too busy and there would never be any cheesecake left!!
This bakery is definitely worth the visit to Penticton!! Enjoy it as much as we did!!

just thought that it is worth sharing how much i enjoyed their new york cheesecake (which i consider an actual blueberry cheesecake). i am a certified cheesecake fanatic, and i must say theirs is one of the best 3+$ i have ever spent. we just had it to go and actually ate it on the bus on our way back to Vancouver. this cheesecake is not that sweet and just makes you crave for more.

Excellent baked goods and a good variety of lunch foods. The espresso is also very good. It can be a little busy at lunch.
