They had a nice variety of food on the menu. Four of us had 4 different items from the menu and we all liked what we had. Server was friendly. Our son and wife had eaten here earlier in the week and liked it so much they took us there.

Located at Lake Louise Hostel. Recommended by hotel reception. It was excellent for food but service a little slow but food worth waiting for. Would highly recommend the Asian wrap and the veggie burger.

We had breakfast here. The food was good but took an age to appear. The tea was a cheap tea bag with far from boiling water so it produced very little colour and even less flavour. We must learn to drink something else at breakfast!

The waitress was happy and knowledgeable, serviced us quickly and the six different choices were all good or excellent: curry, fish and chips, wrap, chilli, burger and one other - a good mix. Good selection of beer. Location is fairly central though unexpectedly in the local Youth Hostel. If we... More

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.

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.
