We've been coming to Fairmont for the past seven years and each visit to Smoking Waters gets worse to where it isn't on our list of places to visit anymore. Service and the food is poor. The table we sat at hadn't been wiped and had a nice crust of dried food on it. We want to support local but... More

Went there for breakfast and was not disappointed. Coffee was good and the eggs bene was top notch. The homemade hollandaise sauce put it over the top. Enjoyed the meal so much we returned the next day and had their 'to die for' sticky buns. Great atmosphere and friendly owner and staff. Highly recommended.

When visiting Fairmont Hot Springs make a point to find this little coffee and lunch spot! It is a little bit hidden but worth the find. Great coffee and wonderful baking! The cinnamon rolls are fresh daily and to die for! Other items like the scones and sandwiches equally good. During the summer there is an outdoor patio which overlooks... More

The sticky buns are to die for...really. They sell out every day. During the high season if you don't preorder one the day before it's a 75% chance you won't get one. Atmosphere is good with decent wifi.

Absolutely LOVED the place when we visited in Oct '12. As others have mentioned, the fireplace setting is gone, and the attentive, engaging service seems to have gone with it. Breakfast was excellent, but pricey... and we waited nearly 10 minutes just to order (while a local person was delayed while they tried to sort out a question with the... More

A quaint stop for a cool and refreshing drink. The staff was friendly, it got quite busy while we were there, only 2 staff working. One was cooking and the other was serving customers. She was very apologetic for a bit of a wait. It wasn't a problem for us. We could see she was trying her best. A few... More

Friendly staff, clean interior, good atmosphere, fair food, but took sometime to receive our order and the grownup cheese sandwich was a bit too greasy. I wonder if there's white/brown bread option? they just came in brown. Good americano/espresso, but brewed coffee was just so-so.

Very charming café! Very friendly staff! Sausage eggs Henry was SO delicious! And I have never had a latte with as wonderful presentation before, especially with one that tasted that heavenly! I slowly sipped it to savour the flavour. I think my son was getting tired of hearing me say "mmmm" with every bite of my breakfast and sip of... More

Best breakfast wrap ever! Good coffee and pleasant service. Why am I required to make the review so long?
