The Skipper!

Best Breakfast in Squamish

Well, Fergie’s Cafe has done it again!

First, we’re exceeding expectations with our home-made sausages, and pulled pork.  People have been visiting on weekends from as far away as Chilliwack just for the food!  Now, Fergie’s has been voted “Best Breakfast” in the annual local newspaper’s Reader’s Poll awards.  A big title to wear, in a town with so many great options for breakfast!  Is it the Dubliner Eggs Benny?  The Pulled Pork Benny?  The Southern Spicy Salami Hash?  The Skipper???  All of the above?

Not sure, but we know we’d like to say a big THANKS to all who voted for us!  It’s been a long couple years trying to get established, and this really makes us feel like we’re taking a step in the right direction!  Special thanks to Fergie’s staff:  Pixie, Brad, John, Dustin & Stephanie!

You can view Fergie’s menu here and see what might entice your taste buds!   Seeya soon!

Squamish Cafe

Fergie’s Cafe is open daily for fabulous breakfasts and lunches (9am-2pm weekdays/3pm weekends). Cozy up inside by the fire or relax on our sun-drenched deck and enjoy the fabulous views of mount Alpha whilst you feast on fresh, locally-sourced and lovingly prepared food.

Our blackboard menu changes with the seasons, here is a snapshot of what we have on offer for breakfast at the moment…

BREAKFAST Fergies

Why “Fergie’s”?  Well, before Sunwolf ever existed, it was a very well-known fishing hotspot called Fergie’s Lodge.  Fishermen came from all over BC and northwestern Washington to fish the Cheakamus, Squamish and Ashlu rivers for Salmon, Steelhead and Char.  Today, people are still coming to these rivers for the fishing, so why not give them something to relate to?  Fergie’s Cafe it is!

Our Local Suppliers

As a Squamish Cafe we are very lucky to be just down the road from some great organic, free range farms in both the Squamish and Paradise Valleys.  Here’s just some of our wonderful local suppliers:

10 Mar ’11 · by admin · Sunwolf Eagle Floats

The eagles have returned, but they are only here for a short time each year.  Call or email us today to reserve your seat!

$100/person  ($65 for children under 12)
Trips depart daily from Sunwolf at 10am.

The Scoop:

Every year, Brackendale hosts one of the largest populations of bald eagles in the world. In 1994 the highest concentration of bald eagles ever counted gathered here – over 3700. Starting in mid November and continuing through February these magnificent birds feed on the salmon that spawn in the glacial fed Squamish and Cheakamus rivers. During this spectacular season, Sunwolf provides the opportunity to view the eagles from a remarkable vantage point – the river.  As you gently float by, our experienced and knowledgeable guides will educate you about the life cycle of the bald eagle and the salmon it depends upon, along with the incredible flora and fauna of our environment.  This is a wonderful trip for all the family, especially those interested in wildlife viewing, bird watching or photography.

Our Eagle Viewing Floats finish at Sunwolf’s cozy riverside lodge, where we will serve you a hearty bowl of steaming chili beside the fire.  Bring your bathing suit and enjoy fantastic views of the Tantalus Mountain Range from our hot tub!  Trips depart daily from Sunwolf at 10am.

Included:

Coffee, tea, hot chocolate & baked goods on arrival
Homemade chili & desserts for lunch (veggie options available)
All necessary rain gear & safety equipment
Professional & Knowledgeable River Guide
**Pickups Available from Whistler, departing from Gone Bakery at 9am!
