“Great atmosphere, high quality fresh food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

A great place with a fantastic atmosphere. All the food is fresh made- some menu items were unavailable because the fruit/food was not in season. Everything was fantastic but be aware that especially on weekends it isn't a quick process.

“Farmer's breakfast or lady's lunch in an orchard”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2013

Once just a fruit stand and now a local favourite for breakfast and lunch, featuring in-house baking and local fruits and veggies. Pyrogies, borscht, and Mennonite sausage, are menu staples. As soon as weather permits (often by early March until late October), tables are out on the patio, surrounded by orchard. Orders are taken as you enter, and brought to your table. The pace is relaxed, and it is worth it to linger over a pastry or piece of pie. Baking, a small selection of local fruit and vegetables, some preserves and prepared, frozen meals are available for purchase. Open 7 am to 5 pm ,7 days a week.

“Happiness is...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

Home cooking and a little something for everyone including a great selection for your freezer! Our company comes from a Mennonite background and just had to have the Menno special!

“You will return!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013 via mobile

Was looking for a good place for breakfast with my parents and found some of the reviews on tripadvisor. At first I was mad because the pin that's placed on the map is NOT ACCURATE and you need to drive another 5-10 mins down Kalamalka Lake Rd. to find restaurant. But let me tell you, when your meal is over you won't regret it. If you've read the other reviews I don't wanna sound like a broken record but this place has fresh food, cozy atmosphere, hot coffee, and a delicious sounding lunch and dinner menu. I can only imagine how nice it would be to sit on their patio in the summer and enjoy brunch. If you want good food, GO. You won't regret the extra kilometres you had to drive.
