This place needs a bit of a tweak as chairs and tables are very same as when it first opened many many years ago. Service just ok, food ok but what got me was to have to listen to kitchen staff talk over and over again that I could not have lettuce on my BLT. I tried to mention I... More

There are not many old fashioned diners around anywhere..this market sector has been taken over by national chains and eating at them a bit numbing after a while. So nice to find a place where the food is good, service friendly and prices right. Meet Debbie's Diner...located in an industrial area in south Penticton (helps to have GPS or a... More

Found this diner on trip advisor and thought we would give it a try. It is a little out of the way but worth looking for. Service was very friendly and quick. The food was terrific especially the pancake. Have to say it was the best pancake I've eaten. Light and fluffy with no heavy feeling after eating. We will... More

I've eaten breakfast here twice. Food is fairly inexpensive and typical diner fare. This is the most authentic diner in Penticton!

It's in the industrial area, you seat yourself. Menu is simple, relatively small. Service was fast and friendly. Ordered short stack pancakes, aka 2 giant fluffy ones, and hashbrowns, which were chunky potatoes. Spare tire burger, fries & gravy. Good was all just good/meh. Would only come back if I really wanted breakfast foods as there aren't many places in... More

This little diner sits in the middle of the industrial part of town. There's a bulk fuel depot across the street and the Penticton Foundry is around the block. It's a working persons place. Don't imagine a greasy spoon however, this place is brightly lit, clean and features large windows. It's airy inside. The absence of blaring music came as... More

A bit out of the way in an industrial park but well worth the drive. I had a shrimp and goat cheese omelette that was delicious. Good coffee, friendly service.
