There were no breakfast places near where I stayed, so I was very happy to find this not too far. Ate here every afternoon and felt blessed to be on vacation in Penticton. Lovely brunch with outdoor seating. Very hospitable staff. Homey little shop.

The Bench offers daily breakfast, weekend brunch, baked goods, gourmet lunch, takeaway meals, catering, and grocery - along with the best coffee in town, made using locally-roasted organic beans. The healthy menu items are made from scratch using fresh, local ingredients. All meats and eggs are from BC-raised, ethically treated animals. And the shelves are stocked with a wide variety of unique, local artisan grocery items. Stop by and see how we're "keeping it local and making it fresh!"
