Purchased a number of bakery items. Was shocked at the total bill. Bought apple fritters based on reviews but totally disappointed. They were a big dough ball. No cinnamon and very little apple; two small pieces in each. For half the cost Tim Hortons are a whole lot better.

Was at Specialty Bakery last summer and had to go back this summer when in Kelowna. As soon as I walked in it smelled like moms homemade bread and tasted fantastic. Their bread and all baking is so fresh, nothing like the prepackaged stuff you get at the grocery store but prices are close to the same. They even have gluten free. We made sure to stop for the Saturday brunch. I haven't found anywhere you get the variety of fresh breakfast items continually being cooked at such a fair price. Of course I had to finish my brunch with their iconic Kelownut. The donut, croissant mix filled with bavarian cream and dipped in glaze are phenomenal. Had to bring a box home to share with all my friends and relatives. Thanks for a great experience.

Heard about this place from friends. Popped in for some baking for a road trip. Great selection early in the day---but goes fast. Nice seating area for dine in breakfast. I understand they supply baking to local retailers like Kelowna fruit stand. Will stop in again.

Wasn't much available when we went in but it was later in the day. We bought a GF loaf of bread and Alpine snacks. Hard to get my son anything as it has to be nut free and GF. The hamburger GF buns are made of gold by their price. Going to try out their Saturday breakfast buffet this Saturday. We will make sure to go more often. We were hoping they had more GF items at a better price. I guess you can get better GF bread but not at a better price.
