Great breakfast, hot drinks and baking. Friendly service and nice outdoor patio seating. Great to have such a good breakfast after camping! We had the breakfast with eggs, toast, hashbrowns and bacon. Their lunch menu was larger than the breakfast one and I’m sure their...lunch is good too.More

A friend and I had lunch. It was not as fresh tasting as we wanted. Soup tasted over salted/processed and sandwich meat was not fresh. Something tasted off with grilled sandwich.... possibly margarine or omega margarine. Very disappointedMore

Had lunch here on Friday. I ordered the lunch special. The sandwich was good. The soup tasted good, but it was barely luke warm. Portions were small for the price. A little disappointed as I had eaten here a few years ago and was very...impressed. Not impressed todayMore

Hello, Sorry I somehow missed this review! We are certainly able to re-heat soup if it arrives not piping hot. I hope you asked us to do this for you as it's an easy fix! We take a lot of pride in serving delicious food...More

Stopped in for a quick lunch. Ordered a wrap which was actually a pita or naan bread folded in half - too dry and wasn’t what I was expecting. Ordered an iced coffee which was average. Not sure if I’ll return.More

It alway pays to veer off the highway and explore the downtowns of little towns in the Crowsnest Pass area. Blairmore has a nice downtown, lots of historic buildings and little park with picnic tables. Across the street from the downtown park is this nice...cafe. We needed a coffee for the drive home, and we very happy with the ones we got. The decor is really fun, and there's lots of space for social distancing. A good sign: they have buckets of water outside for those arriving with their dogs! Next time we're in this town, we'll try their food offerings.More

Me and my family stopped by for lunch. The girl who took our order was friendly and pleasant. I ordered an Iced Chai Latte with Almond milk. The girl who took our order let me know they were out of almond, and asked if soy...would be okay instead. I don't drink soy, so I asked what other milk options they had. She said that she would go check for me. A few minutes later an older woman with glasses and yellow hair started to yell at me from behind the bar. "FOR YOUR ICED COFFEE; IS WATER FINE?' I looked over and said "for my iced chai?" She continues to yell "YES, IS WATER FINE? do you have other milks? SOY. any others? SOY. do you have just regular milk? YES. REGULAR AND SOY." So I said that regular was fine, and she barked the order back at the other barista who took our order. She continued to yell at the girl that she was taking orders wrong, and barking orders at her. The poor girl looked so flustered and stressed, and was clearly new. My experience went from a 5, to a 1 as soon as I got yelled at. Me and my family will never be back, and I encourage others to support other local cafes instead.More

I read about how good Stones Throw Cafe was, so I decided to stop there with a couple of friends. The food was average, the prices were excessive and the service was slow and unfriendly. I must admit that I was very surprised this cafe...wasn't much better.More

The most interesting review I’ve read in a while! I think you are the first person to ever say our prices are excessive and service unfriendly! There’s a first for everything, I guess.
