In the beautiful town of Fernie this place is a scar. The washrooms are falling apart and filthy, the dining area is in total shambles. My chair was so dirty it was gross, every edge had dust floor was dirty cobwebs in corners. No pride in ownership. Put a downer on my otherwise great trip to Fernie. Don't eat here... More

Mugshots features fresh and delicious sandwiches, hot breakfast, soups and treats. The Redneck Breakfast is tasty, as are all of the sandwiches and croissants. The portions are big, and the service always friendly.

Cobb webs in ceilings, my chair had sticky stuff on it, bathrooms were horrible and the place was in general dirty. It took over 40 min and it was just eggs. Service was ok until i mentioned that the bathroom was... More

Laid back, unique atmosphere, used books to browse and board games to play while waiting or for all I know other times. Yummy all day breakfasts, wraps, sandwiches and more. You place your order and are given a large wooden spoon with your number on it, then the food is brought to you, there is a tip jar. Closes at... More

We called in for a very late lunch, in fact as they closing. My food choice was finished for the day (soup) but our server very kindly heated some up for me (and not in the microwave!). The food was really great, beaten only by the caring, attentive server. Would come back in a heartbeat. Come try it!
