In our four days in Banff this was our lunch destination on more than one occasion. Whether it was the shrimp with cocktail sauce or the piled high turkey, these are huge sandwiches with huge flavor. On the pricey side but almost big enough to split. And certainly worth the splurge.

Had the sandwiches been made in a more timely fashion - you know like 10-15 minutes max - they might have been fantastic. But after waiting at least 45 minutes I would hope it would be the best sandwich I've ever eaten. It was a good sandwich, but I wouldn't wait that long to have one again.

Spotted a recommendation for squish and so went there on our last day in Banff. Sandwiches were all freshly made but service was still excellent. There was a good choice of filings and I could have any of the found in a gluten free bun. The gluten free sandwich was excellent and this included the bread, why can we not... More

Stopped in for a quick lunch - we thought. It's in the basement of a building on the Main Street. The service was slow & the sandwiches expensive, but then Banff is a tourist trap. One of our party of 6 found a hair in his sandwich, but aside from that the sandwiches were pretty good. (It should be said... More

We were headed to the airport and placed an order to go. It took almost 20 minutes to put together 3 sandwiches, yes I looked at my watch. The “chips” consisted of a total of 6 potato chips, yes I counted. The shake was about 80% filled, yes I looked. My daughter thought the Ruben was fatty and ate only... More

Very good sandwiches. We both got Montreal smoked meat on rye. With spicy mustard. Very delicious, best smoked meat I've had in alberta. Although almost not worth the prices. Almost 40$ for two people to eat lunch is pushing it in my books. Service was good and the atmosphere was as well. Coleslaw was top notch.

We went here for lunch, restaurant wasn't very busy. We ordered 2 sandwiches, they were very pricey... Actually way overpriced. We also waited a really long time. Although we weren't impressed with the prices and the wait Squish makes some of the best sandwiches we've ever tasted. If you aren't in a rush and don't mind paying a little extra... More

The sandwiches were nice but why so expensive? the little effort of a salad was nice if your going to give crisps/chips on side too give people more than a pinch from out of the bag you opened this morning. If it gets too busy the staff don't look prepared for it and easily mess up orders. The coach driver... More

Expensive and a long wait. Worth the wait in the end but a tad too expensive. Needs something to occupy time while sitting. Some of the best sandwiches around with kind staff!
