What a view right? This was the exact view we had as we tucked into our yummy breakfasts when we visited Fergies a few weeks back. I have been wanting to go to Fergies for such a long time, but a fire early last year caused it close down for renovations and then the pandemic hit, meaning we didn’t travel into Squamish for a very long time.
Fergies is located on the river, at the end of the road that is opposite the turn-off to Alice Lake. It has a huge outdoor area; our minds jumped straight to summer evening gigs as it was just the perfect set up. Loads of picnic tables, some undercover and some open air. The river was only a stone’s throw away and the cafe’s bathrooms were downstairs too. Usually there is a wait, but as we visited mid-week we managed to skip that line.
We chose to sit inside by the bar, but there was also a little cabin style area, as well as a patio out the front. We instantly fell in love with the view from our seat – looking at directly at the Red Tusk, the smaller sister mountain to the Black Tusk. We got right in on the filter coffee and just sat, soaking up the view.
Our meals were both well priced and tasty. I had the vegetarian breakfast sandwich (aka burger) that came with haloumi and guacamole both. Andy ordered eggs benedict, but it was a glorified version with a lot more substance than usual! On Sunday’s, Fergies offer a roast dinner (with a vegetarian option available) that I would definitely be interested trying if I was in the area. It was just a really relaxing spot and it was so nice to feel off the beaten track.
