Graffito Pizza
502A 8th Ave

Graffito Pizza has been a labour of love since day one. Starting with humble beginnings on the back deck of The Royal in October of last year. Guy Lee and Aileen Shipley looked to bring wood fired, Neapolitan style pizza to Fernie. Soft fluffy dough, a bright fresh tomato sauce, fior di latte mozzarella and carefully selected toppings. But would folks like it?  Does Fernie need more pizza? Yes! Which brings them to their new location - the front yard at Earth’s Own Naturals! Pre-orders recommended or they welcome you to stop on by.

Visit to peruse their menu and make your order, and follow them on Facebook and Instagram @graffitopizza.

North Coal is working with the Ktunaxa Nation to integrate traditional knowledge and values into mine designs and plans. This involves commitment to meaningful engagement with Indigenous Peoples including the Ktunaxa Nation, Shuswap Indian Band, Treaty 7 First Nations and Metis.
