Buffet Breakfast

Buffet Breakfast was fantastic. Service was also fantastic. Egg/omelet station was a little slow, but the chef was solo and it was busy. Food for fresh and hot, and there lots of options (Fresh Fruit, muesli, fresh bread's, cereals, eggs, meats, cheeses, potatoes, pancakes, crepes, french toast).

We tried their breakfast buffet during our stay at the hotel which is served until 11am. We were there before 10am , however there is barely any food for us to choose from. At first we thought they are just in the process of bringing in some more food so we waited for a bit. There's about 2 slices of... More

We had the Traditional Rocky Mountain breakfast but after watching what was on the buffet, we would recommend going for that instead. The servers were very attentive and even gave buffet users extra boxes for take out !

I loved the breakfast here. Not only because of a good number of choices of food, but what I loved about this place was the little attentiveness. After we finished our breakfast the server would ask if we would like to have a tea to go before we went out for the day, which I found so heartwarming.

This was one of our favourite dining venues at Lake Louise - a warm and cosy ambience and so pretty with the snow outside. Server was lovely and the food was good with plenty of variety. Despite busy time of year, this was an enjoyable experience and didn't feel too crowded or impersonal.

The buffet breakfast was included in our room rate - and you never know what to expect. Well, this place is fantastic. Amazing food and presentation, great service. Excellent value.

My family of five enjoyed their meal. We had one unfortunate incident at dinner which the manager proactively addressed in a classy way. Sometimes, you can gain more loyalty and positive response when a problem occurs - seize the opportunity to make it right. Thanks, Poppy Brasserie and Fairmont.

Best buffet I have had anywhere. Excellent service by a young staff that comes to this area to enjoy the outdoors. That they keep coming back is a sign that they are treated well by Fairmont.

We had dinner here one night. The food was good and being gluten free wasn't a problem! This restaurant is on the first floor of the Fairmont.
