Had our first date there, and again I proposed there!

My fiance and I went there on our first date. We loved the coffee, and the atmosphere. Evelyn's has always been a special place for us, so last week I chatted with the owners, and they let me use the coffee shop for the set of my proposal to my best friend! It was incredible, and they even had... read more

This place was open at 7am - nuff said! The coffee was good. The baked goods were nothing to write home about. Went back a few times.

We were drawn in by the advertising it was voted best in Banff. Service was a bit slow but no problem. Hot chocolates looked great but was only lukewarm. Raspberry muffins were delicious and fresh. However coffee was subpar and in last mouthfuls full of grounds- necessitating water to rid mouth of both taste and texture. Banff might want to... More

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 :)
