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.

Dropped in here for 2 cups of hot chocolate. The drinks were lovely and the ambience was rather good. The only thing that let the place down, in my opinion, was the girl serving us was very grumpy. Perhaps she had just had a bad day or bad customer. It was a shame because other than that it was a... More

We enjoyed the service and high quality of this coffee bar which caught our eye because we have a good friend with the same name. Good quality coffee, a wide range of snacks and friendly efficient service. What more could you ask for?

Found Evelyn's while staying in Banff recently. Although a little small it was a great place for breakfasts and lunches. It's served delicious pastries and a range of good coffees and light snacks. The place had a nice atmosphere and seemedto be popular with locals.
