We primarily visit the Blue Toque for breakfast/brunch. Food is creative and good. The atmosphere is casual and friendly. You may have to wait for a bit for a table but it is worth it.

Happiness is finding a perfect spot in an interesting location to enjoy a meal! Couldn't ask for more. We ordered a variety of different dishes for a healthy, yummy breakfast. Everything was delicious and beautifully plated. Each dish came with a generous bowl of fresh fruit. We sat outside on the deck enjoying the fresh mountain air and sunshine! Service... More

We were in Fernie for a family vacation and one of our group really wanted to try the Blue Toque. Ten of us showed up a bit before noon on a rather warm Tuesday. When we asked if they had room for ten, the server blanched and said that they usually don't take parties of more than six as the... More

Lovely server, amazing food options. Vegetarian, Gluten free, Dairy free options. We sat out on the lovely patio and had the pleasure of having a train pass by and the conductor waved! The restaurant is in an old train station. Highly recommend!

Travellers! Sick of the same old "2 eggs and hash browns" for breakfast? Come to a place that will start your day with imagination. We were sent here by a local who works in another restaurant - one of the best tips we got on a month-long road trip. The eggs can be served up Moroccan or Turkish styles, or... More

We stopped at The Blue Toque on a chilly, rainy Friday, looking for some comfort food and a friendly atmosphere and boy did they deliver! We were served quickly and efficiently with freshly cooked meals (at the right temperature) from smiling staff who cared about what they were doing, at a cozy clean table in a popular restaurant that is...

I visit regularly! fresh cooked food, not fast food! if you like to know that you are eating fresh healthy food this is the best by far in the valley. fun friendly staff, not pretentious. ocasional excellent specials and unique cousin. if you need a post or pre ride or ski meal it is hard to beat!

Whenever we are coming or going through Fernie we stop at the Blue Toque. It never disappoints. Fresh, quality ingredients, delicious coffee! Always delivers to our expectations.

Great little place in the restored train station. Nice friendly service, huge portions of food. Much different menu than the breakfast places I'm used too. Will be back.

Let me start off by saying I was a server for 8 years, I get being busy and I get when it's the kitchen's fault and not the servers. But my fiance and I went to this restaurant this past Sunday and we didn't have a positive experience. We sat down and did not get greeted, we didn't even get... More

bluebabyFernie, Owner at Blue Toque Diner, responded to this review

This was an off day for service. Unfortunately the person serving was filling in and was not very familiar with the menu. She was trained for spare board in July and since that time the menu has changed. We removed tables to try to keep the pace manageable for a "newbie" but the weather gave us rain and that makes...
