We also enjoyed reading the story about... More

The little restaurant is connected to the hostel in Lake Louise. We have eaten here several times summer and winter because the food is good and prices very reasonable especially in this resort town.

This is part of the YHA Youth Hostel, so the decor is plenty of wood with the odd hiking boot on the wall.  We enjoyed breakfast here twice.  The 2 eggs, bacon and toast also comes with diced potatoes which are really nice, like mini chunky chips.  We found the service absolutely fine on both occasions - in fact on...

Chosen on Trip Advisor we have been satisfied by the great dinner we had. The "pasta" menu is very interesting : salad or soup / pasta with garlic bread / ice cream. The service was nice even the restaurant was full and the waitresses had to run everywhere. A good choice in Lake Louise.

Come here all the time with my family on the way through the mountains...... Waited 15 minutes for a server or anyone to come see us...... You can see them cooking your food in microwaves in the open kitchen design...... It's really gone downhill which is unfortunate because this use to be our faborite spot

Good energetic service and superb superb menu and food quality and range. The Chipotle soup was excellent, as was the steak and the souvlaki and the thai food. Alsolute gem in the midst of fries, fries and more boring fries !

The service was nice and the food was terrific. We ate here last night. I had chicken souvlaki with a Greek salad and rice. My husband had a delicious bowl of chili and a large Greek salad. The food tasted freshly prepared and we would eat here again.

The food is good and the service attentive & fun. We've had 4 breakfasts, one lunch and one dinner and no complaints. A good, reasonably priced and friendly place to eat.
