We visited friends who have lived here for decades and Evelyn's was where they took us. Guess it must be OK. Good size coffee, very hot. Taste fine. Service spotty perhaps employees are transient? Excellent location, close to everything.

The coffee and cookie were nice but the service was really poor, you got served very quickly but we waited nearly 20 mins for a large Cappuccino to be prepared.

I love my coffee and this place nailed it. Every morning without fail this was the first stop before our days of exploring

Stopped here for coffee and desserts. Have to say the pies looked much better than they tasted. We had apple, mulberry, and strawberry- rhubarb. Nothing noteworthy about any of them. Service was not great. Fly sitting on pie as it was given to me, whipped cream container ran out for third piece of pie and staff couldn't be bothered to... More

We ordered paninis for our lunch which were ok but literally served on a plate just that (no side salad or crisps etc.). However, they do great coffee! The bakery items looked good too. Service OK, a little slow and not all that friendly (which we found to be unusual for Banff).

...this is where you go. Well, maybe not a pint, but a large latte really was a large latte. Nicely made too! We ate/drank in this and the sister store three of four times during our two days in Banff and were impressed each time. The coffee and smoothies were delicious and the sandwiches were really great value (as were... More

Evelyn's coffee is conveniently located centrally on Banff Ave. While the location is wonderful, their coffee is not. My husband had a cup of brewed self-serve coffee that made your standard gas station equivalent seem gormet. It had clearly sat in a burner for far too long. I had an very long wait for my Americano, which was a terrible,... More

We really like Evelyns, some have nice outside tables and one of the only places that carries earl grey lavendar tea and white pear tea. Staff always are friendly and helpful.
