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.

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

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.

We primarily visit the Blue Toque for breakfast/brunch. Food is creative and good. The atmosphere is casual and friendly. You may have to wait for a bit for a table but it is worth it.

Happiness is finding a perfect spot in an interesting location to enjoy a meal! Couldn't ask for more. We ordered a variety of different dishes for a healthy, yummy breakfast. Everything was delicious and beautifully plated. Each dish came with a generous bowl of fresh fruit. We sat outside on the deck enjoying the fresh mountain air and sunshine! Service... More

We were in Fernie for a family vacation and one of our group really wanted to try the Blue Toque. Ten of us showed up a bit before noon on a rather warm Tuesday. When we asked if they had room for ten, the server blanched and said that they usually don't take parties of more than six as the... More

Lovely server, amazing food options. Vegetarian, Gluten free, Dairy free options. We sat out on the lovely patio and had the pleasure of having a train pass by and the conductor waved! The restaurant is in an old train station. Highly recommend!
