We have been here numerous times- the food is amazing. It is always fresh and there are tons of healthy choices. Also, the menu changes constantly- they always have different soups, salads, and other entrees on special which can be nice because it adds variety and an element of surprise. Their muffins are also great- regardless of the kind, they... More

We were looking forward to a leisurely early morning breakfast sandwich with a great cup of coffee. We got a miniscule sandwich which didn't taste very good and the coffee was ho-hum, but the price tag was substantial. Not kidding when I say that MacDonalds would have been the better choice. At least I know I enjoy their breakfast McMuffins... More

This is a wonderful place for great food and ambience. We enjoyed the quiche yesterday, went back for a breakfast sandwich today. Use fresh ingredients, free run eggs, organic coffee. Great, friendly staff. A great place to stop in for a visit with friends. One of our favourite places to meet friends for a coffee and visit.

This is a wonderful little cafe. Lots of selection! It was warm and cozy too. My one complaint would be that everything (especially the baked goods) were a bit pricey.

My sister brought two soups, a cookie, and a muffin from this location up to my room while I was in the hospital in Kelowna. All of it was excellent and such a treat from hospital food. Real food with depths of flavour and well prepared. Looking forward to stopping at their restaurant in person next time I am in... More

Called in for some take out sustenance. Gorgeous bread and delicious cheeses. We took the opportunity to have coffees while we were here. All good.

Eating here is better than Moms place. Nice to be treated like family . If you don't like to make lunch sometime this is a great idea. Just wanted to sit and enjoy a couples lunch this was perfect.

Went to Bench Market with relatives for lunch before going wine touring. Was pleasantly surprised with the quality and taste of the food. Sandwiches and salads we tried were awesome. Service was good even though they were extremely busy when we arrived. Would not hesitate to go again

The Bench Market is set at the entrance to the much-travelled Naramata Bench winery route. The Bench offers daily light breakfast, weekend brunch, baked goods, gourmet lunch, takeaway meals, catering, and grocery - along with the best coffee in town, made using locally-roasted organic beans. The healthy menu items are made from scratch using fresh, local ingredients. All meats and eggs are from BC-raised, ethically treated animals. And the shelves are stocked with a wide variety of unique, local artisan grocery items. Stop by and see how we're "keeping it local and making it fresh!"
