This bistro is one of my favourites. It close to our home and usually is a really good place to have breakfast. We visited this past Saturday and it was the breakfast buffet. $15.00 is a little overpriced for what you get considering kids are only charged $1.00 when they waste the most!!! There was a small child two tables... More

Your critique seems to focus on a small child’s behavior while eating in our establishment. Firstly, children are always welcome in our bistro. We apologize if this child was disruptive and therefore the reason why you to referred to our bistro as being “unsanitary”. Cleanliness is a priority at Specialty Bakery & Bistro. We follow and exceed all of the... More

Stopped in again and grabbed some bread. I have reviewed this location previously and thought a new review just based on the bakery side of things was in order. What can I say other then the breads and desserts are made from scratch with quality ingredients and skilled staff. Fezzwigs and specialty bakery make my favourite breads in Kelowna and... More

Found this tucked away at the end of HWY 97 N and decided to check it out. Glad we did! There is a nice cafe inside with the special of the day being a steak sandwich. We bought a Kelownan(?) donut and it was honestly the best donut I can remember having! Looked like it was made by hand! There... More

We buy the best gluten-free bread in Kelowna here at the Specialty Bakery. It is delicious. Bread Co.'s version (on Bernard Ave.) comes second. I looked around and tried the chocolate cake (average) and coffee (average). There are many other appealing items, pies, cakes and quiches. We will try some the next time. The basic breakfast buffet is $12.00 for... More

Great eggs Benedict; fresh, freshfreshfresh in-season Okanagan fruit, good choice of coffees, and cinnamon rolls I'd swear are delivered by angels. It's a BAKERY, too, so there's scads of take-home quiche, breads, muffins (including some gluten-free choices). The four of us left, happily groaning. I'll be back!

My husband and I each ordered a sandwich. The bread was fresh. My husbands turkey Panini had 2 slices of turkey on it and 2 thin slices of bacon on it for 12.50. For that price I can order something in a restaurant with full service. My sandwich was ok but it was 7.69. I prefer subway and I get... More

Thank you for your comments. We take great pride in what we serve our customers here at the Bistro. Comments help us improve our menu and customer service. At $12.50 I believe you are referring to our “Grilled Turkey with Bacon & Provolone Cheese” made on a freshly baked Panini bun. To be fair, this sandwich does come with a... More

Saw some great reviews of this lil hole in the wall and thought I better give it a try. Absolutely no regrets! The Saturday brunch buffet was way to good and to end it we tried their infamous Kelownut. This thing is to die for! We literally brought a giant box home! They also have lots of fresh bread options... More

Popped in for brunch this Saturday and we were very impressed. The buffet was stocked with all of our brunch cravings and the staff were very welcoming.
