During a recent trip to Banff we ate there twice. Once for dinner and another time for breakfast. Dinner - had a nice steak - well cooked which comes with bread and salad. Service good and satisfied with meal. Breakfast - unfortunately very disappointed. Server grumpy and disinterested. Eggs benedict soggy and very average.

Nice salads for lunch - tasty food. Atmosphere is that of a mid-class family restaurant and amenable to those enjoying the outdoor activities of Banff Park. Decent service and good price point for Banff.

A very good place for a substantial breakfast with a friendly atmosphere. The Eggs Benedict were particularly good and I really enjoyed the fact that you could choose 1, 2 or 3 eggs. Good coffee and the Bucks Fizz (Mimosa) was great too.

Wow is what I can say about my breakfast, everything was absolutely perfect and I don't think I have ever been able to say that before about my breakfast. Especially considering when we arrived there were probably 20 other people waiting ahead of us for a table, it was a very busy Saturday morning. Well worth the wait!! I had... More

This is the best place for all day breakfast in Banff! Eggs and bacon done just right with hash browns with a little bit of green onion for flavour!

We ate twice at Melissa's during our visit to Banff, even waiting almost half an hour on New Year's Day we loved it so much. The setting is great - nice high ceiling with flags from around the world in a ski lodge feel. Breakfast menu options are plentiful. Eggs Benedict and Salmon Benedict were perfect. Fantastic fruit bowl loaded... More

I'd heard so much about their brunch that I was really expecting the works. They have an interesting assortment of choices and most of them are what you'd expect to see. Honorable mention to the different variations on "bennys" - or eggs benedict. I tried a couple of them and found them to be nicely prepared, though I certainly didn't... More
