Apparently a lot of people attending our wedding in Fernie ate here, so on their advice we stopped in after the big day. I know why they stopped! Great food and amazing personal service. Oh and the chocolate pecan pie, that was an excellent finish.

For an amazing eat-in breakfast this is our first choice. Amazing coffee and a very unique menu makes the Blue Toque a great choice. Vegan options make this a very popular place and the wait can often be long on weekends but the small cafe...More

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...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...More

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...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.

Hi. Do you have dairy free options? My daugher is not anaphalactic, so food with dairy may be prepared in the same space, just not included in her meals. Any recommendations for dairy free favorites? Holly
