They make fresh pasta everyday, we were looking for a nice supper in Fernie and ended up at The Loaf. What an under rated name. Someone must have learned to prepare food in Italy because the fresh pasta was amazing. The next day we went...More

If you're heading through Fernie anytime after 10 a.m. and feeling in the mood for better than highway fare breakfast, turn into Fernie's downtown and look for The Loaf. The decor is great, the staff welcoming and efficient and the cooking is on a par...More

I was out looking for a place to get a bite to eat and came across the Loaf. The Brie Burger that I had there had possibly the best tasting beef that I've ever eaten in my life. It was darn good!

Outdoor seating, great waiter, very clean place, good food, good value and nice live music. Sitting outside in nice weather you eat while bikes whip by you on Fernie's main drag. It was cool.

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."
