We drive 30 KL. to this bakery, and it's so worth it. We really love the Jewish Rye. The croissants are large.

Ben's food is absolutely fantastic. The shakshuka is my favorite but everything is great. This is my go-to spot for Saturday morning brunch. Ask for some zhoug (hot sauce) on the side to kick it up a notch. Also their coffee is very good.

Walla is a constant when visiting Penticton. Scrumptious food and a great atmosphere. We went family style sharing the Pastrami, mushroom ragout and the chreime (Incredible fish dish). As always top quality and flavour from Walla.
