we had a 10 minute queue but it was worth the wait - Mrs Bain had calamari and i had french onion soup. Then a massive salad and loaf of bread. Mrs Bains steak was cremated as requsted but was one of the best she had ever tasted. My steak was a little underdone but tasted ok. No room for... More

My husband and I had dinner here. The service was efficient and fast although the restaurant was busy. I had delicious beef stroganoff. Unfortunately I found some sharp,hard pieces in the sauce. The waitress told me they shred the beef on a machine and pieces of bone had accidentally fallen in. I was not charged for either my main course... More

This was such a popular place to eat and breakfast and supper are the better meals. I try and rate a good restaurant by the club house sandwich and that was the only down fall to this restaurant. The sandwich was not good but the breakfasts were outstanding.

In a very old log building, the attached hotel is scheduled for demolition and replacement, I truly hope and expect there will be no impact on this location. Good full breakfasts of the fancier variety, I ate there twice in the week we were in Banff. Very good meals and service was good.

We came for a late lunch - DH's burger was good but the bun to my seafood burger was burned so I just ended up eating the seafood patty, which was ok. Service was pretty prompt, but the place was also fairly empty. If you're looking for basic food, they have it covered here. Its basically a large coffee shop.

We stopped by Melissas for the first time for breakfast at around 11:00. The place was very busy, with only a few spare tables. It was quite unusual for the area in that it provides a true waiter service breakfast. The service was very good and the food was with us very quickly. We wil return next time we are... More

It's a popular eatery and centrally located. However, the food is just average, at least our breakfast was. Nothing was bad, just ordinary.

Visit here and sit outside, enjoy being off the craziness of Main St. Good food, handsome talented waiters, home style cooking with fresh local ingredients. Nothing to find fault with!
