The decor is very lovely, very welcoming. It's always filled with happy-looking people. I had the salad with the (canned) beets in it, and I think it was a pecan, maybe two, slathered in dressing that I had asked for on the side. I was...More

Love the new menu especially the sharing plates. Good value for the money. Service is not the greatest. Feels very impersonal, almost like they want you to leave asap.

Although the food is really good here, the service tends to be hit or miss. For as amazing as some of the servers are they do have a few that should look else where for employment. A big disappointment is that they closed the bakery...More

We came here, several occasions, lunch, drinks and dinner. The smoked meats and lamb shank were amazing, best creme brûlée and delicious pasta! Cocktails fun, but the selection of local B.C craft beer was a highlight. The vibe and service excellent!

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."
