Awesome little coffee shop to rest after shopping. Just on Main street so in the thick of things and easy to access.

This place was just what we thought we wanted for a cup of coffee whilst visiting Banff! What a mistake! Tables were dirty and staff were thoroughly unhelpful (most unusual for Canadians!) Food was disappointing - cold despite being warmed in a microwave. I can't even give them the excuse of them being busy because it wasn't - no excuse... More

Not sure what happened to Evelyn's - when we came to Banff 2 years ago, it was a favourite of ours. Lovely staff, delicious coffees. Now however, we've been disappointed both times we visited. The staff are disinterested, unfriendly, they just seem really bored and not willing to engage with the customer at all, or even smile. Bit of a... More

Me and my girlfriend stopped by to have coffee here during our visit to Banff based on the good recommendation in the lonelyplanet. Unfortunately we were more than disappointed. The staff was very unenthusiastic and not very friendly, the homemade cookies were okay, but not great. My normal coffee was good, but my girlfriends moccacino was so bad that she... More

You will not find a better coffee in town. Properly trained barrista's not just button pushers. They have 2 in town and both were good.

I have been away from home (Australia) for a year and a half and this is literally the best coffee I have had yet. The service has always been great and it's such a cute little coffee place. Love it. I will definitely be coming back for this :)

My sister, who lives and has eaten her way all along Banff Ave, introduced me to Evelyn's years ago. I've been spoiled rotten now, and, no cookies have even come close. I'll give a strong second place to the chocolate chip walnut cookies at Le Gourmand on Spadina in Toronto--but, Evelyn's makes mammoth cookies that need to be nibbled at... More

Stopped by with some friends en route to some hiking around lake Louise. The line up was massive as it was the weekend of Melissa's run in banff but the cashier and baristas were efficient and we were able to order faster than expected. Cappuccino came hot and with almost enough foam (can't get enough of it!). Atmosphere is bustling... More

Stopped for a coffee and an afternoon treat. I ordered my double espresso, Ma ordered her cappuccino. This is the real stuff, not like the pods which are becoming so common nowadays. Enjoyed our beverages very much, but was disappointed that no attempt was made to draw a rose or smiley face in the crema. My double espresso was a... More
