Several meals later, we determined that this was the 'most food for your money' in Lake Louise. The top notch service and general ambiance of this rustic and interesting eatery make the delicious food for eat-in or take-out all the better. A friendly owner and cook and waiter staff rounds out the reason why we kept returning. But the menu... More

I had the Aisan Wrap, while the entire family chose the burgers. Whatever your taste is, you can't go wrong.

Somewhat pricey but you get lots of food for your money. Definitely worth it, the food is delicious, the service was great and you can't beat the atmosphere. We will be back.

Waited over 45 minutes to receive our food and when our food finally came the waitress forgot to put one of our orders in.... Our friend waited another twenty minutes for their food.... Service was slow unfriendly and hostile at times...... Asked for a refill on my pop and the server rolled her eyes at me.... Will never darken their... More

WE were surprised that everyone was happy wight heir meals. WE weren't sure what to expect after waiting unacknowledged at first. After that waitress was lovely but not the speediest kitchen of the food. Overall a good place to stop with a family.

This is in a hostel, with rustic, rugged seating--which fits in perfectly with the character of the room and the area. The prices were reasonable, especially for the Lake Louise area. Parking was very limited and we had difficulty finding a spot. We waited a bit for a table, but not too long, and once seated, were fairly comfortable. I... More

This place is in the International Youth Hostel and has only a small sign itself. Can hardly see it from the road and the phone and car GPS both had it in the wrong place. Coming from the 1, turn right at the stop sign and it is down the road on the left. Coming from LL turn left at... More

We went here for dinner based on TA reviews and were not disappointed. My only criticism is that the chicken noodle soup I had was just warm and not hot. I had penne arriabiata and it was spicy and my husband had the chicken curry which he liked. The service was good enough for a 20% tip too.

Ticks all the boxes, good wholesome food, value for money, clean and friendly staff. The gluten free bison burger was so good last night I went back and had it agin for lunch. No frills but altogether these guys have got it right. Congratulations

We had one breakfast at this cafe located inside a hostel in town. The food was good (typical eggs, pancakes etc though they also had some more spicy and unusual selections). It is likely the least expensive place in town to eat. We went back for dinner one night but the wait was so long we didn't stay.
