“Simple and Incredible”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

Little Hobo does what so many places (especially chain restaurants trying to pass off as "fine dining") forget to do: put love into your food and cook what you know.

Everything on the menu is simple, but done right. The sandwiches are enormous, the soups are incredible and the chilli is sweet, spicy and savory.

The husband and wife owner/operators are friendly and make a genuine effort to get to know all their regulars. Their love for their food and customers is reflected in their interactions and warm flavors. This is a definite once a week for me place.

“The Best”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

Took my visiting nephew, who is a picky eater, here for lunch. Loved the Meatloaf Burger. Awesome!!! Have never had a bad meal here. Always stop in when in Kelowna. Friendly, fantastic food, like stopping in to visit your best friend.

Thanks for coming into the Hobo and for submitting your review!! We really appreciate it! I am glad your nephew got a chance to come in and enjoy the Meatloaf Burger... we do that one up every so often on our " Whatever Wednesday" The day where Steve and I have no set menu specials and just cook whatever we feel like! Thanks so much for your second review!! Crystal :)

“Very friendly little restaurant”
Reviewed 23 May 2014 via mobile

We really enjoyed our lunch here. The borscht was incredible (I want more ) and the portions were huge. The staff were incredibly friendly and actually introduce themselves to you and seem to genuinely care about their customers.

Thanks for coming into our shop and submitting a review on trip advisor :) I am glad you liked the Borscht... thank you very much! We make two kinds of Borscht at the Hobo. Tuesdays we make a classic Red Beet Borscht and Fridays we make a Doukhobor Borscht... and of course many other soups through out the week! Steve and I feel as though our customers are like our family... and want them to feel at home when they come in for a visit. Looking forward to seeing you again soon!
This summer we have decided to open Saturdays: JULY AND AUGUST we are going to be open from 11am to 3pm for lunch!!! Hope to see you at the Hobo!! Thanks again... Crystal :)

Reviewed 9 May 2014

Good food, generous portions at a good price. Owner is friendly and remembers everyone's name. Nothing fancy - good for work breaks.

“Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives got to visit here. This place is Awesome!!!”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

If you want fresh, homemade, delicious soup and sandwiches, this place is awesome. I only visit Kelowna twice a year for work, but I make sure to visit this place every time I do. The owners are such warm, wonderful people and I enjoy chatting with them every time I visit. Today, I had Three Sister's soup which was outstanding and went great with the fresh turkey clubhouse. I also saved a slice of their homemade cranberry lemon loaf for my afternoon snack and it was yummy. You can't go wrong with anything you get here. This is comfort food at its BEST!!!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review on Trip advisor. It was lovely to see you two ladies again this season! Thanks for swinging in and having lunch with us when you are in town! We appreciate it. Steve makes a wonderful clubhouse with fresh turkey... it's my favorite sammie he makes. When we first started dating we would go on random clubhouse searches...lol... our date night... checking out every dinner... drive in... and dive.... looking for that perfect sammie. lol. So the clubhouse at our shop has a special meaning to both of us... thanks for highlighting it in your review!! Hope we see you soon... and again our sincere thanks for eating at the Little Hobo!! Crystal
