Not your traditional restaurant, this just makes good food. They have a good selection of pastry and gourmet food items, but the star is the fabulous wood burning oven that makes great pizza delicious. We found the staff were friendly, and our meal was delicious - the wine was excellent and not that expensive for a restaurant. Without carpets and... More

Had supper with family. This is not a service restaurant, you have to stand in line to order at the counter and then pick up your own order. The food was ok but fairly expensive compared to other restaurants for what you get. The atmosphere is cold. People at another table were acting inapproprate and management didn't react.

Absolutely delicious! Gluten and dairy free options, I even snagged a gluten free chocolate chip cookie before we left, so scrumptious! Exceptional service, clean, and a sweet restaurant layout. Would definitely eat here again!

Decided to try a new spot on a Saturday evening and my Wife thought this one was worth a shot. Not much in the way of signage but just off the highway and several vehicles in the parking gave us the green light to go in and check the place out.The interior is warm and well furnished with local artwork...

Every five years or so we have found a restaurant that draws us out and charms is. This has been that restaurant. The sandwiches and salads are good. The carrot cake has the texture of a coffee cake and but is amazing. My wife, who is a health fanatic, loved the beat salad, quinoa and other healthy options, which actually... More

Great place for breakfast , but we changed it up and went for supper. The meals were awesome as always. Try their homemade berry ice tea. The deserts were okay , but theh meal was enough.

Description
From Scratch – A Mountain Kitchen is a market bistro located in Fairmont Hot Springs, BC that is a haven for food lovers offering delicious, fresh and seasonal products to dine in, take out or shop away.

Our approach to this business is to avoid ordinary and average. We create joy and fun in all aspects of the business from how the in-house product line is presented to menu design to customer service level. We are creating items we love hoping we are not alone in our taste! We also oversee outside catering, cooking classes, launching a retail product line and participate in the local Farmer's Market.

From Scratch – A Mountain Kitchen is a unique space consisting of a production kitchen, 30 seat bistro and retail area as well as an outdoor patio for seating to enjoy the Purcell mountain views. The touch and feel of the space is designed with modern rustic elements.

We believe in low food miles supporting a local food network by creating positive relationships with local farmers and growers. Many of our ingredients are seasonal being sourced throughout British Columbia and Alberta. The creation of delicious products also requires passion and quality ingredients. Our Chefs use the finest ingredients combined with simple techniques to bring out the natural flavours of seasonal foods. We have an appreciation for the difference FRESH makes and incorporate this value into the work of the kitchen. As many of the ingredients are locally grown, harvested and raised, the concept of Farm to Fork is regularly featured on our menu. Fresh, local, seasonal with some organic ingredients where it makes sense; ready to cook meals and soups, in-house menu featuring a wood burning oven, fresh baked bread and other delights, a great cup of coffee and a small feature wine/beer list the accompanies our in-house menu.
