Stone's Throw is our regular stop as we travel the Crow's Nest on the way to and from the east shore or Kootenay Lake and Battleford. It results in between two and six stops a year. The decor is "lay back" quaint. The pre-prepared food is great and the freshly prepared food is equally good. The owner-managers, Jessica and Steve... More

Yum, yum. Friendly service! Sit outside if you get the chance - when busy it is a little warm inside! What a beautiful mountain view. We had the grilled cheese sandwich, soup of the day (clam chowder) and a ham and cheese sandwich. Check the pics! Mmmm. Complemented with a triple berry and orange-strawberry-banana smoothies. Next time we are trying... More

Previous reviews had me expecting more! Order at counter if you can get someone's attention. Prices not bad but food is average. I hate it when you request soft basted eggs & they come out sad & hard. Don't ask me how I want them if you're going to cook them how you want. It took us a while to... More

Wow, right down to the wobbly table on our sidewalk. I don't know what to say! The concrete was poured long before our time. I will pass all of your other comments on to our staff, though. They work hard to give everyone great service, but there are times when we are busy and might not instantly notice someone ready... More

Finally found a awesome cafe off the highway. Coffee good the date square I had was great. The seats outside make you stop and breathe, take in the view and pause. Thank you Stone's Throw. I'm coming back with my family and friends.

I love the vibe in the Stone's Throw Cafe. They have tons of local artwork hanging up on the walls, and their chai tea latte's are so good! The Cafe is definitely one of the more popular places in the Crowsnest Pass.

Excellent breakfasts, lunches and great place to sit and have a coffee. The bakery goods are fresh right away in the mornings, coffee variety is fair. home made sandwiches are the best as are the desserts. Welcoming workers and owners.

On vacation and staying with family in Blairmore, so went to this restaurant for a late snack and coffee. Lovely little place light and airy and a nice welcome. Ordered sandwich plus home made confectionary and coffee. Excellent value and quality

Started my day off with a breakfast wrap served up in a warm pita chock full of fresh veggies and eggs. So good!! I couldn't resist a fresh cinnamon bun later in the day...I shared mine, but don't feel like you have to! Locally roasted coffees are featured and coffee drink choices are endless!

Description
Located on sunny main street Blairmore, this popular little cafe was established in 2003. Relaxed and kid-friendly, we're a great choice to eat in, with our comfortable atmosphere, but there are always options for the grab and go crowd. Get off the highway and find us on main street...You deserve better than gas station coffee!
