Good food, reasonable prices, limited seating

We ate at this "restaurant" several times while in Lake Louise. I found the food to be good, especially breakfast, and the prices very reasonable. It has limited bar type seating for 8 to 10 people. There are picnic tables nearby which we used a couple of times. They open at 7 am.

A nice, solid place for breakfast. There are relatively few breakfast restaurants in Lake Louise, so expect it to be crowded. Seating is very limited, but all orders can be made "to go." Good food at reasonable prices.

When visiting Banff NP, we got sandwiches from Trailhead to take to hikes. We loved everything we picked. They were delicious. We were truly impressed with the sandwiches/wraps they serve. Do try them. You will not be disappointed. A elk stew was mentioned in some reviews. They sold out quickly. We finally got to try it on our third visits.... More

we don't enjoy coffee in USA or Canada. This was the exception. The best coffee for the whole trip. CURE wrap was also excellent.

Great tasty food. A nice alternative to the many French fry and hamburger places around. They take your order by iPad while you stand in line to speed things up. Good vegetarian options

The place is in the Lake Louise mall area. It's a small joint but serves the best coffee and omelettes in town. We've stayed for 2 days in Lake Louise sightseeing and we've chosen them for breakfast. They also have a good sense of humour as you can see in the photos. Definitely worth paying them a visit for a... More

We picked up wraps here before heading to The Lake. They were delicious. Full of fresh ingredients and made to order. We watched them make some breakfast bagels and they looked amazing as well. It was very busy and it is a very small cafe, there really isn't much place to sit. But who wants to sit there when the... More

Great place for breakfast if you're staying in the town of Lake Louise. The eggy breakfast wraps are amazing and the pastries are tasty too. I got the veggie wrap with ranch dressing every morning and split a cinnamon roll with my friend. The coffee was always hot and fresh and, thought I never tried one, the mochas and espresso... More

We went to this cafe in the Lake Louise village plaza for lunch. It was raining so it was quite busy. They had a number of interesting wraps. The veggie wrap was really good with cheese and egg. The Cajun wrap was terrible as it had hardly any meat in it. The pizza wrap was delicious and so was the... More

Om nom nom nom......the Trailhead sandwich blew me away with how good it tasted. I was laughing quite hard at one of the signs, "Unattended children will be given an espresso and a free kitten". You should head here for a quick and delicious breakfast, while keeping everything at a reasonable price.
