Kaslo, a gorgeous little village sporting lots of charming Victorian architecture, courtesy of the town's late-1890's mining heritage, sits on a chunk of spectacular alpine real estate, complete with fabulous beaches along the shore of fjord-like Kootenay Lake and the snow-capped Purcells scraping the sky across the water. Anyone visiting who wants to soak up some genuine Kootenay culture while tucking into a plateful of yummy food definitely needs to beat a path straight to the Bluebelle.

Its decor is warmly funky (complete with a wood stove, perfect for those chilly evenings out after some backcountry skiing), the food's fresh, there are lots of Nelson Brewing Company organic beers and ales to choose from, and as others have noted, their desserts are stellar -- and they serve Oso Negro coffee -- 'nuff said.

The Belle often features live entertainment, especially Fridays & Saturdays, showcasing local and touring musicians in a fun, intimate atmosphere.

Bottom line: if you're from Somewhere Else -- especially a big city or suburbia -- a visit to the Blue Belle Bistro may well be one of the high points of your stay in Kaslo. It's uncannily like the (fictional) restaurant in the hit 90's TV series, Northern Exposure -- check it out, I doubt you'll be disappointed.

this is pretty much the hub of kaslo for locals and tourists alike. the food is fresh and health-conscious, but still delicious. portions are mostly generous. frequently have live music, and display local art and crafts. it has a lot of character and heart. a necessary stop if you are new to kaslo. :-)

This restaurant came recommended hands down by several people we had met and I have to agree; fresh food, very good deserts (try the lemony lemon cake!!) and good coffee. I really enjoyed the chicken Caesar and we also had the soup of the day and sandwiches. Very fresh and good ingredients. Local art displayed in the cafe is very charming. Will come back again!

My husband and I popped in for lunch, very nice atmosphere, casual, friendly service, wonderful aromas. Their turkey vegetable soup was made in house with real turkey and loads of veggies - delicious. We shared a large pizza which was very fresh with a wonderful crust and ample toppings, we had several pieces left to take home. We would recommend this restaurant, it truly was an unexpected delight.

Arrived in Kaslo en route to the grizzly bear ranch and stopped for lunch at this delightful little bistro . Enjoyed the chicken Caesar with their special dressing. Good service and reasonable prices.
