I know this is the only place out in the middle of nowhere, but $4.75 for a small plastic cup of pop!!!! Almost $10 for a sandwich. 20 minute wait for my 2 teens hot dogs.

Sure it may be your only option for a rest stop when you're driving from Banff to Jasper, but you will be angered at: 1. The fact that the gas costs $167.7/L. 2.1L of bottled water will cost you $7! You should plan in advance to avoid stopping here! Save your wallet from this!

This review is for the cafe not the restaurant. The food was average......nothing more than that. I dished up the soup of the day and having spent 5 minutes in the queue told the cashier, who did not seem to know what he was doing nor did he look interested in what he was employed to do, my husband would...

The place looks like it has accommodations as well. This review is just for the cafeteria. As for the cafeteria, I've never seen more expensive food in my life. The prices will make you cringe. I mean, the only other place that rips you off on the same level is at the big chain movie theatres. I guess the incentive... More

I often just drive to the crossing for the day. This is so close to home. I am glad that' the crossing' has published the day hike brochures to help attract visitors and not just be the place to get your gas. Lot's in the area but kinda unknown.

It's difficult to say anything good about this place. We stopped here for lunch and regretted it. We went to the pub first. We decided not to stay after we found out that the overpriced menu was a "cook your own" deal. Maybe fun if the prices were lower! So we went to the cafe were the food was average... More

There are very few places to eat along the Icefields Parkway but due to my schedule, I had to stop here to grab a quick bite. I purchased a ham sandwich, which was absolutely awful. I took just a few bites then had to throw it in the trash. The real travesty, however, was the price. The horrible sandwich and... More
