This is a great little home-style restaurant that makes daily soup, as well as borscht, and is located just two blocks off of Highway 97, in the Penticton Coast Hotel. We stopped there for a quick lunch, and were greeted by friendly staff almost immediately....More

I love freshness. It has a quality I cannot fully express. Bear's Den is freshness to a T, my friends. The lunch was great and I felt that I had experienced something unique. I will certainly go back. My spouse felt the same.

I'll be sure to pass along your wonderful comments to our staff. We source our fruit from a local fruit stand, Blossom's Fruit Stand daily, so it's great to see that our customers can notice and appreciate that! Thank you!

Visited during Canada day long weekend. When we arrived it was around 10:30am and it wasn't overly packed like other restaurants in the area. Food was fresh and tasty. Staff was very friendly and polite. Will definitely go back!

I ordered the low carb meal that did have a wrap, but was quite thin. I quite enjoyed the wrap with eggs, and bacon. The grapefruit that came with the meal was juice and sweet (for grapefruit)
