Hunting for good breakfast spot on Easter Sunday was never going to be easy but wow what a find with help from TripAdvisor. Cute little place in Fernie's old train station serving great food, very pleasant staff and obviously a popular destination. You might have to wait but it's worth it.

Pretty good portions sizes of interesting food that is often slow to arrive. The 'intimate' space crowds in lots of hungry patrons. The service can be slow when there are so many people in there, but when it's not so busy things run much more smoothly.

bluebabyFernie, Owner at Blue Toque Diner, responded to this review Thank you Donna Marie for your review. It can certainly be challenging to produce and serve food during the busy tourist season. To add to that challenge we do not pre-make, microwave or deep fry- so the final product will always take a little bit longer. Most of our guests... More

Came here for breakfast for my birthday with friends. Excellent food and very excellent service. We were in a hurry and the waitress made sure she got our orders through quickly.

We thought we'd give the blue toque a try for a weekday breakfast. With only 1 other table, we thought the service would be good. We were told to sit at a table for 2 in case they got busy, no problem. Except the next table of 2 that came in were seated at a table for 4 by the... More

We are sorry Suzette that you felt ignored and offended. As a team we have discussed this event and feel your description is biased. Firstly you did not wait to be seated at the front door as the sign suggests but came right in to the dining room. While you were self seating the server called over to you to... More

Arrived with 3 friends for a Sunday morning breakfast and was pleasantly surprised to not have to wait for a table. Probably because everyone else was up enjoying the fresh powder on the hill! We all loved our meals which included French toast, Victoria's, Marrakesh, and the Masala scramble. Wonderfully different breakfast flavours that were amazing! The service was also... More

I am never disappointed with a trip to the Toque. From start to finish the meal is amazing. Great drink and cocktail menu, always a perfect americano! Fresh ingredients and nothing is pre-made, a rarity you will not find in most restaurant kitchens. The menu is creative and unique. Plus the staff are the best and treat all the customers... More

Stopped in on our way out of town and am pleased to say this place surpassed my expectations for a memorable breakfast. Welcoming & attentive staff, extensive menu, delicious specials. I had a meal of savoury waffles (corn with jalapeno), eggs, pork belly with a delicious spiced/garlic yogurt sauce and I believe a chili/maple syrup to douse things in. All... More

I hadn't been to the Blue Toque for years and was delighted to find that it is in the same location, and still serving up great food. Eggs of all sorts, poutine, eggs benny, and all sorts of dietary accommodations can be made. I had a vegetarian (maybe vegan?) dish and it was just fabulous. And filling. Good food, good... More

Visited on Jan. 21, 2017. Apparently the restaurant has only recently started serving dinner, having previously been a breakfast and lunch spot. Small restaurant, really interesting, quiet atmosphere in the old railway station. Very nice original artwork on the walls for sale. The menu had very good variety and interesting options, including good gluten free dishes. Asian and N. American... More
