We stopped and had ice cream. Yummy!! Don't get gas here, way too much money. Cost 1.89 a litre. Make sure you get gas before you head to the ice fields.

Prices for lunch food in the cafeteria are higher than airports, but there is literally nowhere else within many miles. Quality is fine (in fact the chili is pretty good) but good place to have a picnic with the stuff you brought with you from Banff.

We stopped at the diner to get lunch after visiting the Icefields. Way overpriced cafeteria style food, bus groups use the facility as a rest stop - bathrooms looked it.

Classic example of the "greasy spoon" roadside diner. This is the only restaurant for miles around … the prices are inflated / the food is greasy and inedible / the service is indescribable. I have numerous food allergies and could see on the menu that everything was served with copious amounts of "sauces". Requested a grilled chicken breast with a... More

This plain, nondescript cafeteria is conveniently located between Banff and Jasper. Decor is sparse and verging on unpleasant. Food is average quality but portions are generous. Prices are much too high for the quality of the food. If the location wasn't so convenient there would be very few return customers.

Located halfway between Jasper and Lake Louise this place has a monopoly on the icefield parkway. There is a cafeteria, gas station and souvenir shop. We didn't dine as we always like to take a picnic and enjoy a peaceful stop with a view. As we were there off season there was some bargains in the gift shop. All I... More

The Crossing is located half way between Banff and Jasper and there are no other choices for many miles. There are two parts to the restaurant, a Buffet and a Cafeteria Line. We tried both. The Cafeteria line has a lot of fried food choices and very little healthy food to choose from. The Buffet has selection of overcooked meats... More

They have a little of everything and at reasonable prices. I like to top it off with a popcorn to go.

The crossing had good food, much better then the Icefield, and it was a good portion but it is very expensive. We ate in the cafeteria, they have a restaurant but every time I've been there, they are also a good bathroom break, it's been closed for a private function. I wish it wasn't so expensive, they get to take... More
