“Great eatery - has moved to 2nd Ave”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012 via mobile

Based on a recommendation from our B&B host we went there this evening. They have moved to 641 2nd Ave in Fernie, BC into new upscale digs, very nice. We were early and the first ones eating there tonight but very soon the place got real busy and ordering our carrot cake desert (very yummy) took quite a while. We enjoyed a light meal of fish cakes and carrot and ginger soup and some white wine. A very nice place to eat. We will recommend it.

“Pleasant Surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

We arrived in Fernie without a clue as to where to eat. We came upon Loaf and it looked inviting. We could not have been happier to start our Thanksgiving weekend here! The waitresses were extremely knowledgable about the new menu and the kitchen staff were even joking with our children. Excellent food, service, and atmosphere. Well done!

“The best pizza ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

We visit fernie often and make The Loaf one of our mandatory stops. The pizza is the best we ever had and the bread and baked goods are the bomb.

“This was the best salmon I've ever had. Not overcooked, tasty with home made polenta.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012 via mobile

I really enjoyed this meal. It's a clean, light, modern interior that serves high-quality food. Definitely recommend them for dinner.

“Maybe it will get better”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

OK, went to this place the second day it opened at its new location. I ordered the top entree - steak. Now, this is just when the restaurant started so you would think that the chef would have down the process of cooking a steak and put in a little extra love. You would be wrong, the steak was sent back for being raw - yes raw. Seared that's it. Ridiculous for a steak that costs as much as it did. Here's another eye-raising tidbit about this place...it is a bakery and we asked for some bread and butter because we were starving and just in from a log day fishing. THEY CHARGE FOR THE BREAD. $1.50/slice. Anyone out there ever, in their life, remember being charged for bread at a restaurant? How about at a bakery no less? How about during its grand opening? Ridiculous and clueless place.

I regret that you had a bad experience when you came to eat at our restaurant and unfortunately didn't received your food how it was ordered.

We were overwhelmingly busy that weekend and we strive at all times at Loaf Bakery to offer the best service we possibly can. Unfortunately this time I can only apologise for the experience and invite you back to confirm that we have improved on your first impressions

Also I would like to confirm that 98% of our customers leave our bakery with only praise and compliments for the level of food and service they receive.
