Great food, friendly service, you may have to line up but it is worth it. We were missing a good cup of coffee since we left Australia and we loved the coffee a well

When our hotel disappointed with breakfast we came down to this place. They had an excellent selection of coffee which we enjoyed while sitting on the patio enjoying the fresh mountain air Breakfast can be a meal that is hard to impress with but this place did a great job! I had the omelette which was packed with flavour and... More

We loved this tiny cafe. The wraps and coffee drinks were wonderful! Fun to sit and read the trail guides while we ate. We like small local places with local charm and this cafe filled the bill perfectly.

No matter what time of day I came here--even early in the a.m.--there was a long'ish line. They make food to order--and it smells and looks very good--but all I wanted was a cup of coffee (actually two of them to go, so I didn't have to stop somewhere so soon again). I found even the lighter roast was kind... More

The food here is great, but you have to get there early if you want to sit down as there are only 8 chairs. Many people do "take away". It's great!

Always busy, they make a good capuccino! We did not eat there, but the food looked very good, fresh and homemade. There can be long lines at lunch time so get there ahead or after and you will be find.

Hands down the best coffee in town, great service, lots of friendly locals, and a simple and tasty menu. The donair, the pizza wrap, and the BLT sandwich are the must eats! Come in winter when less tourists are around, its a small space and the line can get aggravating. Top notch food served by a top notch crew.

I have been to the trail head cafe plenty of times and I love their wraps....however I get angry every time I watch them make my items. Sometimes the girls who take your money start making your food and don't wash their hands first and then you have the guys making the food wearing gloves but never changing them. I... More

Breakfast and lunch wraps, some sandwiches. Willing to customize wraps, omitting certain items and adding different sauces. Coffee smelled great. Picnic table and some outdoor seating available. If you want a typical sandwich, try the bakery in the same strip mall which also seemed to have mac 'n cheese and of course baked goods.

If you are after a yummy breakfast or lunch and great coffee head to Trailhead Cafe. It does not look like much from the outside but the food is excellent and staff very pleasant. Worth a visit if you are after something basic but yummy.
