It took a while to seat us even though there were plenty of available seats. Our food took a while although the waitress did apologize. We also paid before our table was cleared.More

Find this gem in the old train station. Creative and delicious food, tons of selection. Great patio and atmosphere. The owner and server provided fantastic service and the kids were entertained by the chalk and bubbles.

I arrived in Fernie late in the morning on my bicycle and was really wanting breakfast. I stopped in and had an exquisite omelet and pancakes. It has great atmosphere and the food was stellar.

Make sure you stop here for a breakfast or lunch option. So many great choices made with fresh ingredients. We really enjoyed it and the patio offers great views of the mountains. A+++

We thought we'd give the blue toque a try for a weekday breakfast. With only 1 other table, we thought the service would be good. We were told to sit at a table for 2 in case they got busy, no problem. Except the next...More

Hi Chris, We still have a dog lounge and are always happy to have furry friends. Dogs are still not allowed in the dining areas of the restaurant or patio as per health regulations in BC.
