We came here for a quick lunch last weekend. We had the chicken sandwich to share and it was delicious. I'd definitely come back if I was in the area.

A laid-back kind of place. Plenty of tourists (at this time of year) as well as locals. Decent offerings and good coffee.

The Bench came highly recommended as a breakfast spot in Penticton and it did not disappoint. We returned to the buzzing patio for 2 of our 4 mornings in town. Both the salmon eggwich and the yogurt and granola were delicious, I highly recommend.

A favorite casual haunt for locals all year. Great coffee and delicious breakfast and lunches. Unfortunately, 'the Bench' is becoming so popular that tables are sometimes in high demand. Worth a wait, though.

Went for brunch on the weekend and had their smoked salmon eggs benedict. It was great! Tiny, homey layout. Very busy, but for good reason.

Fantastic local stop. Fresh food and great indoor and outdoor space. Multiple food choices and lots of take-away selections. Worth the visit if you're in from out of town and looking for a quick healthy meal.

Food, pastries, drinks and service are fabulous. I hike this side of Penticton so I can enjoy a goodie here.

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!"
