We stopped in here during a road trip across the country, on a very rainy day and were so happy to discover this gem of a cafe. The nature artwork on the walls creates a great ambiance. The staff was very professional and patient, despite...the cafe being fairly busy. The salads and sandwiches were excellent, as were the smoothies. There are also many delicious baked goods. Make a point of getting off the highway and stopping here!More

We stopped on our way back to Alberta and enjoyed a delicious breakfast, cooked just right, fresh and tasty. My coffee with Oat milk was great and we would definitely eat here again when in the area.

Well let’s just say I’m super picky about the cooking of my eggs, runny yolk and cooked whites, no slimy whites! And I know it’s not easy to nail the cookness every time so let’s just say “NAILED IT! “ the eggs on both of...our dishes was perfect!! And the coffee was amazing as well! Even with their internet down! Going back next time we drive thru for sure!❤️More

So fresh and delicious. The baked goods looked exceptional, but we were too full to try them. A surprisingly great find in such a small place. Some nice local art and crafts inside as well.

Of course the coffee is quite good and I enjoyed my chorizo omelet. Their breakfast menu is just right for starting your morning and it's a good idea to purchase some bakery items for your trip. The artwork on the walls are lovely. The only...advice I'd add is to offer a choice of bottles of sauces to enhance the potatoes. Also, feel free to offer a free coffee refill during breakfast. I'll be back soon.More

This tiny place in Salmo, B.C. is one of a kind. Amazing photos of landscapes and animals by Canadian photographers cover the walls. And then there is the pastry case.....oh how to choose. Definitely try this gem.

The best coffee place in the Kootenays. In all the time since it has opened I have been a customer when I travelled this way. Never have I ever had anything less than outstanding friendly service or anything less than excellent coffee or snack or...meal. Kudos to the owner for maintaining such high standards in staff, service and products for the past 17 years. I recommend Dragon Fly to all my friends.More

Terrific menu, had a hard time choosing. All four of our meals were great. Got the brownie to share. We sat outside and enjoyed the weather however the inside is nicely decorated with pictures and artwork. Was surprised to find such a gem in this...small town.More

Stopped in for breakfast as I was contemplating my route home due to a road closure of the Kootenay Pass (vehicle fire). Staff and regular patrons were friendly and helpful in finding the best route home. I had the eggs Benedict and a black coffee...which filled me up for the day's drive. Tables were a socially acceptable distance apart during this time of covid-19. Patrons with to-go orders were asked to wait outdoors. Hand sanitizer was available upon entry. Barriers were in place for ordering. Walls were covered with beautiful photographs and art which one could purchase. Would definitely return when in the area.More

We ate breakfast at the Dragonfly Cafe last week and were very impressed with the quality and size of the ham, carmelized onion and cheddar omelette. It was our first time there and we each had an omelette with perfectly cooked eggs wrapped around a...generous serving of ham, cheese and onion. Kudos to the barista who made our lattes - they ranked up there with those served in Australia (big coffee culture in Aus!) and better than Nelson’s Oso Negro. The staff were lovely and service was great. This charming cafe is highly recommended.More
