Enjoyed lunch here, every meal coming out of the kitchen was steaming hot and beautifully presented. We enjoyed the Omelette special and a couple of other regular menu items.

A local recommended this Restaurant; and wow the cooking was fantastic. They roll their own pasta & bread, some years ago they were a bakery. After a delicious bread platter with butter & pesto, I ordered the mushroom risotto with duck leg confit, while hubby...More

We stopped in here after a very cold day on the mountain. We had a beer, soup and pizza and it warmed us right up! Service was fantastic and friendly.

Hi Holly, hope this isn't too late to respond. The Loaf has a number of dairy-free options including soups and salads and most of the breads. The pizza dough is made with EV Olive Oil (no dairy) and many items can be... More

The Loaf has been growing and evolving for seven years, from a start-up in a miner’s cottage to a firm favourite in Fernie’s Downtown core. Owners Phil & Claire Gadd have always designed The Loaf to be accessible and affordable, a neighbourhood restaurant where everyone is welcome and feels comfortable, no matter what the time of day. With excellent food, made from scratch on the premises daily. Now its time for some changes: updating the interior to make a more comfortable dining experience, extending the list of craft beers and offering more wines and liquor and creating an environment where the focus is on exceptional food, good company and the relaxed dining experience. “Our perfect wish for Fernie is a place with craft beers, a good solid wine list by the glass, pizzas, pasta, and some other nice mains, but nothing too fancy. And that’s exactly what we’re aiming to do at The Loaf.”
