Concierge.com's insider take:
The Blue Toque"toque" is a Canadian term for a woolen winter hat (i.e., nothing to do with chefs)serves the best breakfasts in Fernie, with massive plates of hash browns, eggs, and veggies. It's also a nice place to chill out over a cup of joeand to survey the work of local artists. The café is housed in Fernie's Art Station, a former Canadian Pacific Railway station built in 1908. Painters, quilters, and weavers work on the upper floor; photographers and ceramicists occupy the basement studios. Their creations are displayed in the station's former lobby, as well as inside the Blue Toque.
