About Papa G's Café and Diner

Proudly Located in Kamloops BC

Papa G's takes pride in offering gluten free options for those have allergies to gluten and most home made soups are gluten free. Many of our loyal customers and friends have followed us downtown and love the new atmosphere in the new restaurant. Papa G's vision from day one has been to provide top quality food with excellent customer service at a fair price for everyone. This vision has not changed in the move to downtown Kamloops. What has changed though, is the menu offers dinner along with the great breakfast and lunch the customers have been accustomed to. The name was also changed to Papa G's Café and Diner. Papa G's catering service is your number one choice for breakfast, lunch and large dinner events. The new downtown location can accomodate 55 people in the private banquet room for small weddings, birthdays, business meetings, anniversaries, christmas parties or family reuinions. Call us at 778-471-4799 to book our banquet room today for your needs.

The new location at 258 Victoria Street in beautiful downtown Kamloops is very inviting, comfortable and a relaxed atmostphere where friends come to meet and enjoy a great home cooked meal. Along with the 55 seat banquet room upstairs, the main floor can seat 60 people.

Papa G's Cafe and Diner has worked extremely hard at building repeat business and it shows in the reviews given on social media. You can read the reviews on our Papa G's Cafe Facebook page, or Google and Trip Advisor as well. Come in for yourself to see what our customers are saying and to taste our homemade food. You won't be disappointed.

Gerald Thiessen - Owner & Operator

Gerald Thiessen, Owner and Operator, started Papa G's Café in October 2013 as a small quaint café in the McGill Rd Industrial Park in Kamloops BC. In August 2018, he closed the McGill Rd location, moving to Downtown Kamloops where we now manage a spacious restaurant at 258 Victoria Street.

Gerald Thiessen first found his interest in cooking in high school, taking basic cooking classes. At the age of 15 he started as a restaurant dishwasher, and was eventually mentored by his employers and fellow employees in the art of fine homestyle cooking. Many years later through hard work, business experience and perseverance, he created the Papa G's Café brand. It is through his brand that he shares his personal flair for cuisine with his customers.

Gerald has never been afraid to take risks along the way, experimenting with new flavours, different techniques and courses. As a family tradition, he does what it takes to persevere in whatever he does in life, from being a business owner, creating the perfect meal..to establishing a memorable experience for his customers.

Delicious Home Cooked Meals is his motto and the proof is in the soup!
