Satisfy Your Cravings

We like to keep things real in the Similkameen and when it comes to our food, we keep that real too. We have real good, real fresh, and really accessible goodies to set your mouth watering. Culinary pioneers migrate to our valley. They create unique and family-run eateries, and source fresh Similkameen ingredients. We have home-style and exotic, meat shops and bakeries, and cafes and pubs. There are plenty places here to help you satisfy your craving for authentic Similkameen flavour.

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

Dining al fresco

Hedley Eateries

Get your coffee, snacks, soups, and picnic supplies at the Hedley Country Market just off the highway on Scott Avenue.

Unfortunately the Hitching Post in Hedley burned down in October 2018. No word yet if it will be rebuilt.

Cawston Eateries

Come 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 made with organic ingredients grown on site.

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

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.

See our directory for more eateries in the Keremeos area.

Princeton Eateries

Princeton - where to eat

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 nostalgic stop for history buffs and families alike. Open year-round, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner.
