This is a great cafe, located at The Crossing Resort, Icefields Parkway. It's very visible from the road, has plenty of parking, petrol and washrooms, as well as accommodation. An attendant actually came over and filled the car for us, which was a nice treat. We were passing through the area, and called in for a quick lunch in the... More

Avoid this place. If your unlucky, you might have to stop here and use their dirty washrooms. We ate at their restaurant because we planned poorly and didn't bring food with us while driving on the Ice Field Parkway. Our 40$ meal was ridiculously over- priced. We had to wait while one of several bus loads of folks got feed.... More

We stopped for lunch so the dining room was not open. The choices at the cafeteria style setting were not great and the prices very high-almost $9.00 for a single sandwich. We will try to avoid tho stop in future.

We had expected a resort on the Jasper, Icefield Parkway to be really expensive but while expensive, it was not overly so. The rooms were interesting, if a little rustic and the facilities at the resort were adequate. This resort has fuel, so if you are running short, there is a great assisted serve pump on site. There are also... More

Stopped in here for a break during our Canadian Rockies tour and were made very welcome. Huge gift shop with a huge range of trinkets, souvenirs, clothing, jewellery and local merchandise coupled with a great range of food options makes this the ideal place to take a break from the drive through this amazing area. Plenty of parking and spotlessly... More

Surely you remember from all of your road trips---those souvenir stops that you just love--because they have unique and sometimes "campy" gifts---and a great little restaurant for a meal. And anything and everything else that you might want for your journey!! Cold bottled water---souvenir jewelry---hunting knives--snacks of all sorts---a giant stuffed bear or two--chocolate bars--crackers--chips of all types---cheese snacks--magazines and... More

We spent several days in Crossing lodging and ate different meals at the restaurant. Food is average; service in evenings wasn't as good as morning service. Thought food was expensive for what was offered. Good ice cream though!

Had cold food for two meals; pasta for supper and eggs with hash browns for breakfast. Service was indifferent. Decor is dated and shabby.

Concessionaire food in national parks usually doesn't impress, but the hamburger basket and bacon cheese hot dog in the cafeteria were truly appalling. My son will usually eat a hamburger anytime anyplace, but even he couldn't stomach this one. And the gelatinous process cheese food covering the hot dog was repulsive. How 'bout a tablespoon of real grated cheese? If... More

We had read previous rewiews so knew not to allow the tank to fall too low and have to fill up here - it is very expensive for fuel so read the reviews and don't get caught. We decided to stop for a coffee and toilet break and found it busy with several coaches doing the same. The coffee was... More
