Great place for breakfast , but we changed it up and went for supper. The meals were awesome as always. Try their homemade berry ice tea. The deserts were okay , but theh meal was enough.

If you haven't yet been. You need to go!! Fabulous little find. The fare is limited but very very good - as the name suggests - from scratch (or close). The treats are pricey but worth it to savor the experience. The seating is limited and I'm hoping they can expand that as the service and staff are friendly and... More

Pricey restaurant to grab lunch. Some good food, some not so good. Too much focus on organics and specialty products which sacrifices flavour and increases costs sometimes. My companions beet dish was burned on the top and the waitress didn't offer to get a new one even though it was plain to see. I decided to give it another try... More

Tasty, welcoming, honest, great set up with tables.. I had chicken curry with panini bread and rice. Very tasty. The group then shared an Eton Mess. The chef Adrian, and his partner were friendly and welcoming.

We have yet to be disappointed with the food when choosing to make the drive to Fairmont Hot Springs. Always great food and now that we have been there a few times we have figured out the menu /seating / order system and really enjoyed ourselves! It's a great find!

From Scratch – A Mountain Kitchen is a market bistro located in Fairmont Hot Springs, BC that is a haven for food lovers offering delicious, fresh and seasonal products to dine in, take out or shop away.

Our approach to this business is to avoid ordinary and average. We create joy and fun in all aspects of the business from how the in-house product line is presented to menu design to customer service level. We are creating items we love hoping we are not alone in our taste! We also oversee outside catering, cooking classes, launching a retail product line and participate in the local Farmer's Market.

From Scratch – A Mountain Kitchen is a unique space consisting of a production kitchen, 30 seat bistro and retail area as well as an outdoor patio for seating to enjoy the Purcell mountain views. The touch and feel of the space is designed with modern rustic elements.

We believe in low food miles supporting a local food network by creating positive relationships with local farmers and growers. Many of our ingredients are seasonal being sourced throughout British Columbia and Alberta. The creation of delicious products also requires passion and quality ingredients. Our Chefs use the finest ingredients combined with simple techniques to bring out the natural flavours of seasonal foods. We have an appreciation for the difference FRESH makes and incorporate this value into the work of the kitchen. As many of the ingredients are locally grown, harvested and raised, the concept of Farm to Fork is regularly featured on our menu. Fresh, local, seasonal with some organic ingredients where it makes sense; ready to cook meals and soups, in-house menu featuring a wood burning oven, fresh baked bread and other delights, a great cup of coffee and a small feature wine/beer list the accompanies our in-house menu.
