Oct 15 2018, 8:21 pm

After much-loved Squamish spot Fergie’s Café went up in flames in the early hours of April 3, 2018, loyal patrons weren’t sure if they’d ever get to enjoy the 70002 Squamish Valley Road eatery again.

While no one was injured in the blaze, the building itself has suffered massive damage and only the trailer was saved from the small cafe located on the Cheakamus River by the Squamish Fire Rescue.

Now, six months later, the cafe’s owners have finally received permission from the District of Squamish to rebuild, and construction officially begins today, October 15.

“We’re really excited to start work on building Fergie’s 3.0,” says Jake Freese, co-owner of Fergie’s Cafe and Sunwolf Riverside Resort. “The new building will be very different, but the spirit of Fergie’s will remain unchanged.”

Plans for “Fergie’s 3.0” include new measures to reduce the cafe’s energy consumption but will offer the same locally sourced and inspired menu, and the family and pet-friendly dining experience we know and love.

The cafe has been operating out of a food truck to provide catering for weddings held at Sunwolf Riverside Resort during the summer, but visitors and locals will be excited to hear the eatery is making a comeback in a big way next year.

Fergie’s Café is set to open at the end of May 2019, we’ll keep you posted on an exact opening date.
