Best coffee and sandwiches in Lake Louise village

There isn't much competition in Lake Louise village, but they make good espresso drinks and solid coffee. It's a good place to buy wraps and sandwiches to pack for a hike and the baked goods are nice as well.

Great breakfast. The pancakes were so light and fluffy. Staff very friendly. Good place to stock up before a hike. Easy parking.

Went to the "other place" in June 2013 but we weren't impressed so decided to give Trailhead Cafe a go this time. So glad we did, the wraps were delicious. All made to order so the wraps were still warm when we got to our picnic site a few miles away. We can thoroughly recommend the Chicken Ceasar Wrap, the... More

Popped in here and it was really busy. Bought a cheese pepperoni twist, some Elk stew and a white hot chocolate. The place is clean, busy but well managed and amusing reading some of their signs and posters in the store. The white hot chocolate was lovely do I popped back for another one. Nice place to stop whilst at... More

picturesque setting, friendly, prompt service... i believe they include local ingredients in their dishes. they didn't serve coffee or tea at the time we were here... overall, we enjoyed the food here more than at the fairmont.

The cafe has a great menu for you to pick up lunches and dinners. They do close rather early, I believe due to staffing shortages which plague most places of businesses in Lake Louise. Our family really enjoyed the food and appreciated that it fit our budget.

This place is a gem! Best breakfast wrap ever. Portions were huge, price is appropriate. Good alternative to the over priced tourist visited hotel dining.

There are very few places to eat in this town. The trailhead is a small cafe that offers, rolls, sandwiches, desserts and drinks. No beer. If you are a vegetarian,read the menu board carefully, it might include eggs. Service is fast and the food is not bad. There are a few informal stools. A quick eatery to grab a bite... More

You can go here for a quick bite but during season time its always crowded and takes a while to get your food. Not too much seating either inside or outside spare a few benches. The sandwiches are good and so are their falafel. My order got messed up twice as the first time around it was taken by another... More

We stayed at the Mountaineer Lodge three nights. Their coffee is terrible so we made a point to hit Trailhead Cafe each day. Great coffee and awesome lunch sandwiches! I recommend the falafel for sure.
