Friendliest restaurant ever, with excellent food and portions to match. Although unassuming from the outside this is a "MUST STOP" place to eat. From the moment you walk in you'll receive a whole new level of customer service that I doubt you've yet experienced anywhere. This place is busy but personal attention doesn’t get lost in the hustle. The same... More

Great little sandwich shop! This place knows what it is and pulls it off spectacularly. Loved by tourists, laborers, and hipsters alike.

Since last review I have tried the meatloaf with mash and gravy, breakfast clubhouse, big breakfast, the burger, and 5 different soups with my new favourite being the beef stroganoff. They have yet to disappoint and I look forward to trying the rest of the menu items.

Simple and delicious meals, one of my favourite spots in Kelowna. The owners and staff and wonderful. Remember to bring cash as they don't take cards, can get a little crowded peak lunch time, but the food is well worth the wait.

Never disappointed with the variety of food for a small business. They are heart warming people who have run this restaurant for years. They are a go to restaurant in downtown Kelowna

A bowl of soup, a great sandwich or the Daily special, everything I have eaten here is most satisfying. Two blocks off the main street it is worth the walk. Super friendly staff and a long reputation it is in newer digs with lots of room. Enjoy!

A feeling of family and great home cooked foods. I had the yam soup with a bun that seem to be enough food. Food from the old fashioned kitchen of simple goodness. Great community.

The lady makes a mean soup. She's one talented gal. I've never had a soup I didn't love from the Little Hobo. We brought a group of 9 and she accommodated us in her old location that was tiny. So warm and welcoming. Great place for a bowl of soup that tastes like home.

This was my first visit to Little Hobo and I had the Borscht soup and biscuit. It was fantastic and the service was out of this world. Nothing was too much trouble. I will be back.
