We stayed in Blairmore between February 6th to 13th and during this time we had extreme snow storm and cold weather. This cafe was such a welcoming place to go and such great atmosphere and great home cooked foods and baking. What a lovely small town cafe that made us all feel so welcome even with three noisey children. The... More

Perhaps the only thing better than their matrimonial bars is their rhubarb version. Or their peach/raspberry version... or... the scones... (Confession: I'm in the habit of buying several at a time and freezing them, then I ration myself until the next time I'm thru the Pass!) Definitely a must try!

Supposedly this is a "healthy" place on TripAdvisor. That is only if you compare to KFC. Preprocessed salad dressings, over cooked egg omelette, and mediocre coffee. Ugh. The sad part is, a Mexican place in town that I've frequented has way better food and they're closing.

I have visited this great restaurant many times throughout the years & every time I've received great food for a decent price & excellent service! The staff always services up a smile & a little conversation. No doubt about it, it's a gem!

Always a welcomed stop just off hwy 3. The coffee is always on and the baking is always fresh! Stopped in with our family and they were more than accommodating with our small children; offering up toys and conversation to keep them entertained. Well worth the slight detour!

Not the most important feature of the cafe but greatly appreciated nonetheless is that this awesome little joint doesn't blast the local country-music-playing radio station overhead everyday, all day. This little cafe offers surprisingly very good food (for a small cafe) and a fun atmosphere with excellent servers! Stop at Stone's Throw next time you're in Crowsnest Pass!

I am so happy our little town has this gem right on main street. Every time we have ever gone here the food (and latte's) have always been delicious, served more quickly than anyone could ever expect, and always with a joke or a smile along with it.

I absolutely love Stone's Throw Cafe. I usually eat breakfast or lunch there at least once a week, sometimes 2-4 times a week. Steve and Jessica Atkinson, as well as their wonderful staff, go out of their way to make people feel welcome. The food is always fresh and the baking hand made. If you know anyone in the Crowsnest... More

First of all, if you are tired of Tim Hortons, this place has a real espresso machine and does very good lattes. If you have been eating at highway fast food places, that alone makes this worth the trip into town. Atmosphere is a bit like an old farmhouse kitchen. From the way the locals were greeting each other, it's... More

Located on sunny main street Blairmore, this popular little cafe was established in 2003. Relaxed and kid-friendly, we're a great choice to eat in, with our comfortable atmosphere, but there are always options for the grab and go crowd. Get off the highway and find us on main street...You deserve better than gas station coffee!
