It's a new location which is slightly bigger, has a larger kitchen and offers an expanded menu from the previous location. The daily soups are amazing as always, I had the Butter Chicken Soup which... More

It was my first time there. It was very busy even though we went there at 1145. Very friendly and quick service. The food was delicious but I think it is a tad pricy for what you get. I will certainly go back again.

I am a regular at the Hobo and have always found their lunch menu delicious. I was in for breakfast yesterday and had the french toast, eggs and hashbrowns. They served the meal with REAL maple syrup and the hasbrowns were made from scratch. Now, that's impressive!!

In a city where so few places make the sauces from scratch, it is fantastic when I learn that someone is doing it. Excellent eggs Benedict all from scratch. I have been twice recently and had the house hollandaise and real breakfast potatoes. Delicious. Only Curious Cafe, L'Oven, and the 4 hotel restaurants make it daily and year round (MTL... More

Recently moved to Kelowna and heard about this place from many people. When I got there it was busy but the staff got through the line quickly while also paying attention to each customer. You can tell the staff love the environment. The soup I got was very tasty and seasoned well and the sandwich was fresh. Would go back... More

This place is the best! Everything is home-made and yummy! Sandwiches and soups are always great here. Prices are reasonable. There is a reason this place is always packed, because the food is consistently AMAZING, and has been for decades. Recently moved to a bigger location!! They make this peanut butter marshmallow square that is to die for!
