Although the Red Tree Restaurant is only open to the public during private functions, we're fortunate to be situated within a few minutes walk of some really fantastic restaurants, cafes and shops. Whatever you're looking for, Fernie can provide it - and conveniently for you some of the best options are our neighbours!
We provide a complimentary 'breakfast snack' in the lodge lobby which consists of coffee, tea, muffins, yogurt and fruit. It's enough to get you going but for a proper breakfast we've arranged special guest deals with our great neighbour:
Try a Breakfast made with local farm fresh eggs or a bowl of crunchy granola, yogurt and fruit to get you energetic for the day. Lunch offers freshly made homemade soups or stews (they taste just like Grandma's!) or their famous Grilled Cheese made with FOUR cheeses!
Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Big Bang Bagels
Cinnamon Raisin, Jalapeno and Cheese, Multigrain, Onion Garlic, Pumpkin Seed .... do we have your mouth watering yet? Big Bang Bagels, located on 2nd Ave (Downtown) makes all their bagels from scratch, combining wholesome and healthy ingredients, hand rolling each bagel, then boiling them to perfection. Enjoy the popular Big Banger (toasted bagel with fried egg, old cheddar cheese and your choice of ham or tomato) or try something adventurous like the Switchback Salmon (cream cheese, smoked salmon, caper and red onion). Opening daily at 7am, Big Bang Bagels is a popular breakfast spot, even more so now that they offer - bacon! Homemade daily soups and cookies are also available to enjoy.
The Blue Toque
Tucked away in the Arts Station located on 1st Ave, The Blue Toque serves an all day breakfast and lunch. A smaller and more intimate restaurant that cooks with fresh ingredients and offers amazing daily specials. During the summer, enjoy a gorgeous view with breakfast by dining on their patio.
Located on 2nd Ave (Downtown), the Brickhouse is a true favorite with their popular Jam night on Thursdays and Martini Mondays. Enjoy sitting on their sidewalk patio and dine on Breaded Calamari, Mussels or our favorite the Plain Jane burger. With homemade fries and enjoyable atmosphere, the Brickhouse is sure to please.
Central Local House
Newly renovated and providing the same quality service as The Northern, the Central Local House is offering guests a modern Italian menu. Scratch Pizzas made with authentic double zero flour from Italy. House made pasta and gnocchi. Killer panini's and refreshing salads. Open at 5pm till late everyday.
The Curry Bowl
Located just a short walk from the Red Tree Lodge, The Curry Bowl is an Asian-fusion restaurant that offers something no other restaurant in Fernie has. Their roof top patio allows for 360 degree views of surrounding mountains while you enjoy their delicious Bombay Chicken or Green Coconut Curry.
Right across from the Raging Elk Hostel you'll find El Guapo, Fernie's only Mexican restaurant. With daily specials including the popular Taco Tuesday and 2 for 12 Burrito Wednesdays, the food is not only comforting but so is the atmosphere. With recent renovations completed, El Guapo now has a new bar, ping pong table, couches and more space to enjoy great food.
The Northern offers a pub-like feel with live entertainment throughout the week. Their menu offers popular pub fare including Nachos, Pot Stickers and Wings. Lunch and dinner options include Pulled Pork Sandwich, Chicken Aioli Wrap and Salmon, all served with your choice of 2 sides. Don't worry the extra side won't break the bank, as most of the items are priced from $11 - $19.
Don't forget The Northern also features a Kegs & Eggs brunch menu from 11am - 2pm on Saturday and Sunday's. Try the Pulled Pork Hemp & Hash or the "Rock Pile" (bacon waffles with chicken, topped with maple syrup) and let your taste buds go wild.
Yamagoya, a local favourite, specializes in Sushi. For those first timers (I was one too), don't be afraid to get out of your comfort zone and try something new. Yamagoya has an extensive menu with such items as Edamame, Gyoza, Tuna Tatki, Calamari and about 25 different rolls.
Yamagoya opens at 5pm daily and always remember to be there at least 15 minutes before opening time as there's usually a line and they do not take reservations. (This allows equal opportunity for all patrons to try out Yamagoya's delicious sushi.)
