Tasty wraps and sandwiches

Finding good value in Lake Louise is well nigh impossible. Everything is expensive and Trailhead Café is no exception. And yet, for a small place located smack down in the middle of Samson mall, this café offers some delicious treats at prices that don't always break the bank. Their wraps and... read more

This cafe is located in the little shopping center in Lake Louise Village and offers a quick, inexpensive place to get a really delicious sandwich, soup and/or salad. There are also some delicious treats available to finish up your meal. This little place is always busy but you can usually find a spot at a nearby picnic table in front... More

The first time we visited the cafe, there was an employee there preparing food who was coughing all over the place, she had a cold, but she was still preparing food spreading her germs all over the food so all their customers would share her germs as well. She wasn't wearing a mask or any gloves, and she made a... More

Nothing special, really. You can buy better coffee at the gas station. Overpriced, just because of the location. Staff is nice.

Rueben sandwich and the chicken, ham and salad wrap very good. Healthy option and just did the trick. Seems like the place to go as very busy. Friendly service.

THIS PLACE IS AWESOME!!! The ladies working there are a HOOT! My husband and I both had the Reuben sandwich. Probably, it could have been enough for two people but we got one each. They have baked items that looked so good. Don't miss this place!

Best meal we found in the off season (during October.) Cozy feel to the place. Good breakfast and sandwiches. I'm sure it's a very busy place in summer.

We were directed to this lovely little place during our trip in August 2014. We stopped in on at least 3 different occasions. The wraps are tasty and hearty. The apple / cinnamon muffins are awesome. Coffee is pretty good. I stopped in again whilst up n the mountains during my unexpected trip back to Canada in March 2015 -... More

This little cafe offers a reasonable variety of food but does not fulfill the menu board's promise. Service was a bit slow and our food was not well presented and a bit bland. If one is hungry it will fill a hole. Going over the menu was mouth watering, but eating was disappointing. Price reasonable.
