This is a great place for those tired of the usual franchised options right on the highway, especially in Merritt, where nothing is right on the highway. Very good coffee and hot drink options. The apple fritters are a delight.

Breakfast sandwich and some bagels when we stopped in for a snack before heading for the coast. Pretty quick service, decent food, and a local eatery.

We stopped for lunch on our way to Kelowna. Unfriendly and unhelpful service, poor value for mediocre food and no kids options. We always try to support local, but we won’t be stopping here again!

This place always delivers. I work in Merritt in the winter and they have great coffee. The best part of this place is the keto options. They have bagels and treats, all keto friendly. It’s super hard to find places on keto without saying, “what...can I eat here”. The staff is friendly and they make everything themselves.More

We stopped in for a quick lunch after a hockey game. The kids enjoyed a cinnamon bun. I enjoyed the tuna melt on a bagel. The Mrs. enjoyed the latte. Overall it was good, quick, and had a cool vibe inside. They had some Keto-friendly...options - which is good to know!More

Stopped off there for an early lunch on my trip from Logan Lake, BC to Vancouver. Cosy little coffee house that was able to produce a fresh sandwich and soup for a light lunch at about 11 AM. Reasonable value and would stop there again...next time am passing through Merritt.More

There are very few times we come to Merritt and we DON'T stop at Mandolin's Bagel & Coffee House in the Railyard. This time around I had a local eye exam and we were in town early, so I suggested to my wife, Brenda, that...we swing around here for a hot drink. The place was mostly empty (unusual whenever we stop here) but welcoming just the same. We both had mochas to which Bren (a former barista and coffee shop owner) noted hers had little, if any chocolate in it. I was happy with mine. The baked goods looked awesome, although we didn't grab anything. We did find the pricing a bit on the funny/strange side with items costing $7.51, $7.54 or 7.94 (just a few examples). Regardless, service was great, the place is always neat, tidy and the washrooms are spotless. Expect to see us here again. Thanks!More

I have not been to this place for years and remembered it as having good food so stopped to get a quick sandwich. I had a toasted egg salad sandwich and it was disgusting. The white bread was either very stale or the toasting was...hardly done because it was just 2 slices of white stale bread with egg salad that was maximum 1 egg. My wife's tuna melt was at best OK. There are still Christmas decorations in the place and it has the appearance of " I just don't care anymore"More

Stopped in for a quick lunch. Had the turkey sandwich and soup. The sandwich was on very fresh sourdough bread. They put some nice cranberries in the sandwich. Very nice. The soup was beef barley, and it was very good. I would have liked a...little bigger bowl of soup, not just a cup size. They had some yummy looking cinnamon buns but I held myself back from them !Would definitely recommend.More

This is a great little coffee shop and sandwich bar. The menu, the staff and the great photos on the walls all add to the experience. The bagels melts are great, the coffee is good (although I would have preferred a fuller dark roast) and...the staff are super friendly and very efficient. I absolutely recommend this place if you are passing through or visiting Merritt.More

If your looking for a great coffee house with the hum of the local vibe. This is the place. It has been here for a while and has every type of people showing up here. It has business, family, and average Joe show up here...for the wonderful lunch's and brunch type foods. Coffee is made on the spot and there is always a concept type meal offered every day of the week. The menu changes and it is never boring here!More

We stopped in to Mandolin's for a bite to eat on our way to Kelowna. The menu has a lot of sandwich and bagel options, some salads and pastry/bakery choices as well as an extensive coffee menu. The ladies behind the counter were really friendly...and accommodating. I'd definitely visit again.More
