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 vibe makes it worth the wait.

We decided to try this restaurant. The waitress was nice enough but when it came to ordering I asked if I could have cheddar cheese rather than swiss on my pastry. I was told the kitchen would not make amendments. My daughter asked for no mushrooms with her meal and was asked if this was because she had an allergy... More

Thank you Fiona for your feedback and also for giving us an opportunity to further explain our "no amendments" policy.

We introduced these onto the menu a few years back to address the growing trend of... 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 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.
