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.

This the best coffee place in Lake Louise and the lines in the morning prove it. Food is also ok and what more do you need ?

Drinking warm coffee while watching Lake Louise is a must, Trailhead has the best, The lunch wraps are big and tasty. Somehow they are not afraid of the use of Garlic. I am sure that that Garlic keeps unwanted bugs away. I am not so sure about the Bears.

The have a huge menu of wraps (which they were happy to omit a couple of ingredients from to suit our preferences... No raw onions please!) that are prepared fresh and delicious. The Greek wrap is my favourite so far, but I plan to try many more... We went twice yesterday after discovering how good the wraps were! Prices are... More

We stopped by for breakfast on our way to Jasper. Unfortunately we were not happy with the food or service. The two girls behind the counter were not flexible with making even minor modifications to the menu. We were told "we only make what's on the menu" when requesting our egg sandwich on toast vs. a bagel. The food was... More

The Trailhead Cafe is a locals' favourite (not that there is many to choose from haha) and rightly so, because the coffee is amazing. It is a shame however that the cafe is so tiny, unable to accommodate the number of guests queuing. Also, the staff seemed cramped and unable to keep-up with orders also. While the prices are relatively... More

This is the place to go get a really good breakfast wrap. Fresh, fast and made to order. Do not miss this, if are in Lake Louise, or just driving through.

This place charges $10 for a wrap! No side nothing. Your want a side, it's dessert and its another $5. Save your money and go to a restaurant in town and get real food for the same price. Also they were closed today at 5:45 pm! Do don't plan on anything but an expensive lunch at this place.
