Glad We Tried Trailhead

We had lunch here and were definitely not disappointed. Tried the homemade mushroom soup, elk stew and a wrap. The food was very savory and quite inexpensive. Not much for seating....a few stools at a counter. This place can be busy at times but is a great choice for a take out.

I tell all my friends to go here when they visit. Most menu items are made into a sandwich or wrap. Great great value for money

...and it is on the way to Lake Louise, so if you plan to visit the lake early in the morning (what you should do, otherwise it is crowded), you pass Trailhead Cafe on your way there. Consider stopping, grabbing some food and head on to the lake to enjoy your breakfast there!

Best coffee in town, friendly staff, quick service and great food from sweet to savoury. Place to drop into as you head up to or back from the lake or ski fields. Nice work Manager Emm and the team.

An easy sandwich/wrap cafe that makes them on the spot. There are lots of chicken options, or if you're vegetarian like me you can sub in falafel's for chicken to any wrap.

This place has a clear personality. A toonie on the counter and I can have a med coffee and make it my way. The people are nice and I feel welcome there. Love the cure wrap and the date squares. They also make an excellent expresso and chai latte.

I have yet to find somewhere to make as good a breakfast wrap as trailhead. I have tried since 2007 when I first went there and it just hasn't happened. I talked them up so much to my husband ahead of our trip and he said after having one, that I should have talked them up more. We ended up... More

My oldest son, husband and I ordered breakfast to go here while vacationing in Lake Louise since it was an easy walk from the Post Hotel where we were staying. It was smaller than I expected, with little room to sit, but they had some interesting items on the menu. We had the banana bread, yogurt parfait, breakfast sandwich and... More

I bought a wrap for $10, its decent, i wasnt expecting anything and nothing out of expectation. Small sweet little cafe, its cute. I would come here for cheap food in lake louise area and after that grab another piece of dessert to go.
