We had a nice lunch at Bill Peyto's Café last week. The waitress was friendly and helpful, and our food was served hot and in a timely manner. We will return when we're at Lake Louise again.

We stayed at the Chateau Lake Louise but were getting tired of the food being so expensive so I did a little research and found this little place. What a find! They have a nice menu with a good variety of choices at a reasonable price. The burgers came with a hearty amount of fries or a large salad and... More

We ate dinner at this cafe three times in three days and we were never disappointed. We tried the lamb souvlaki, fettuccine alfredo, chicken coconut curry, Peyto burger and caesar salad. All meals were delcious and passed our expectations. Some items included salad, garlic toast and ice cream for dessert. What incredible value! The rustic surroundings were pleasant and the... More

Cafe is good value for money. Good choice of food and beverages to suit most travelers. Rustic decor but always clean. Staff are very friendly and attentive. Give it a whirl, you won't be disappointed.

During our visit, we actually ate at Bill Peyto's twice. The atmosphere was great, service was good, and the food was surprisingly great for such cheap prices. We loved that they served local beers - it was just a fantastic place to kick back at the end of a day of hiking and not feel like you were breaking the... More

One of the better values in the area. Good service, quality of food, and large portions. Lounge area above the restaurant meant for hostel residents, but good for a quick break.

The place offers good value meals for the location but the service was too casual. The waiter dropped hot tea on the table and accidentally wiped it off on my husband's lap without acknowledging or apologizing to him.

We stay at the Lake Louise Hostel annually over New Years and make sure we have a meal at Bill Peyto's each year. The decor is rustic and charming and the service is good although there have been times when the place was understaffed. The food is basic, tasty and filling. Prices are very reasonable given the location in a... More
