Satisfy Your Cravings

You can tell a lot about a place’s culture by looking at its cuisine and culinary practices. This stands true for the Similkameen. Our region’s rugged, rustic, and homely characteristics are mirrored through the Similkameen’s food scene. Everything served to you in the Similkameen is real and cultivated with passion. Brilliant culinary minds have migrated to the Valley through the years, and we expect them to keep coming. Unique, family-run eateries that source fresh Similkameen ingredients are born from these passionate people. Expect home-style cafes, farm-to-table restaurants, and traditional bakeries and pubs. There are plenty of places here to satisfy any food cravings you may have, and more than a few that will help you discover new cravings altogether. Get ready for authentic Similkameen flavour.

Taste your way through the Similkameen. Here are just a few of our eateries.

Crowsnest Vineyards, Cawston
Crowsnest Vineyards, Cawston

Cawston Eateries

Eat in the Organic Capital of Canada. Klippers Organics in Cawston is home to Row Fourteen. It’s cuisine from the earth, the way nature intended. The menu changes with the seasons and is made with organic ingredients grown on-site. Be sure to try their freshly baked bread and let the chef decide your table’s spread.

Other Cawston eateries include the restaurant at Crowsnest Vineyards, offering traditional German and European Cuisine, and Seven Stones offers special winemaker dinners.

Benja Thai, Keremeos
Benja Thai, Keremeos

Keremeos Eateries

Benja Thai

It’s one of the most unexpected restaurants in an unlikely location. Just ask anyone who’s enjoyed lunch, dinner or take-out at Rick Chaicomdee’s Keremeos restaurant, and they’ll tell you, it’s definitely “Thai worth the drive!”

Rick will probably greet you right at the door with a big, wide smile. Then he’ll ask you about your day while he prepares to serve you authentic Thai dishes made from his own family recipes.

Billy’s Restaurant, Princeton
Billy’s Restaurant, Princeton

Princeton Eateries

Billy’s Family Restaurant

A Princeton institution, Billy’s has been a favoured stop just off Highway 3 for generations of travellers who appreciate family-friendly fare. The restaurant was named for the notorious Gentleman Bandit Bill Miner, a Princeton resident until his fateful heist in Kamloops. Since then, the restaurant has been a nostalgic stop for history buffs and families alike. Billy’s is a no-frills type of traditional diner, but boy is the food ever quality. You’ll never leave Billy’s disappointed or hungry, for that matter. Open year-round, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Thomasina’s, Princeton
Thomasina’s, Princeton

Thomasina’s

Who could resist a place that first started as “Knead Some Dough”? Stop by Thomasina’s, where she and her husband, Jerome, have created the kind of place you’d like to sit and stay awhile. They serve up home-style sandwiches with artisanal bread baked right in the shop. Thomasina’s is located in Princeton’s heart and is the perfect spot to enjoy a cup of tea or lunch and watch the world go by. Open year-round, serving breakfast, lunch and an extensive menu of just-baked treats.

This are just two of the fantastic eateries you will find in Princeton and area. See our directory for more eateries.
