Super-interesting menu in this casual diner in the Fernie Arts Station, right on the train tracks. Lunch items range from eggs benny-style, to soul bowl healthy eats to sandwiches. Also omelettes. Everything comes with either tons of fruit or hash potatoes. Dinner menu is super-interesting ranging from gourmet mac 'n cheese to Asian bowls to pot pies. Nice ambience. Check... More

We eat at the Toque regularly for Breakfast, lunch or Brunch. It's location is ideal and the food is made from scratch and so good. Because it is homemade, it does take a little longer in the prep, but it is worth the wait. Tonight we went for dinner. They are open Thursdays through Saturdays for dinner during the winter...

This place does breakfast and lunch. It's located in the historic train station a short distance from the CPR mainline tracks. Sure enough, a train came by while we were dining to add that authentic atmosphere. The dining area is small but we had no trouble getting a mid-morning table. We made a reservation but the place was only about... More

Thank you Rick for your kind review. I'd like to clarify for other readers that we do not accept reservations. It is my guess that Rick's group signed up on the waiting list which allows diners a call back service if there is a line-up. More

Choices were numerous and enjoyed the specialty of the house. Only one piece of toast and noisy background detracted from the experience. There were three people with blue toques on in the restaurant. I left mine in the car! I'd go back.

bluebabyFernie, Owner at Blue Toque Diner, responded to this review

Thank you outofsocks for the kind review. I'm sorry about the toast. Our bad by not informing you about our toast policy. In an effort to reduce food waste we only provide one piece with your meal, but we will bring you as much toast as you would like free of charge. See you next time. Tanya Carre, owner/operator More

Stopped in for breakfast on our way through. Couldn't be happier! Fast, friendly service, to die for food. The hot buttered cider was amazing.

Big portion but it was so yummy I had to finish it. The service was so friendly and the restaurant was full but... More

Eaten here a few times, this was the first time in the summer and the menu was very different. Food was good as it always is. Coffee is delicious and I had a ceasar which was quite refreshing. Always a reliable place for a filling breakfast.
