A nice casual dining spot with a great view

A perfect place for lunch while at Lake Louise, whether you sit indoors or on the patio. Both have views of the lake and the food is very good.

Though we had to line up, the wait was worth it. It was quality food through and through. We had the best omelette and smoked salmon. The rest were also of high quality and delicious. The service was also great...they provide a complimentary tea/coffee/pastries while you wait. The staff were prompt and efficient.

Was in the exact room shown in one of the first posted pictures highlighting the two large windows facing the lake. From that regard, can't beat the view. While the rest of the experience around service and food quality was not bad, it just left much to be desired given the potential to really stand out with the backdrop of... More

We ate here for Breakfast and with a tight time frame to eat to be ready for our tour that day I found the 30 minute wait too excessive. Yes there were a lot of guests, but they must have known there would be. When we finally got in we had to gobble our food and not enjoy it as... More

We had one buffet breakfast here while at a conference. The food was awesome and the presentation was as well. We certainly enjoyed the view from the table. Keep in mind the restaurant is on the lower level close to lake level so you will not see the entire view but then, after your meal, head outside or higher up... More

We stopped in at Poppy's for a quick snack and a coffee on our recent visit to Lake Louise. After being seated it took 15 minutes for the waiter to come to take our order. It then took another 30 minutes to deliver a simple garden salad and the coffee we ordered we had to remind the waiter 3 times... More

Basically the problem here is that this is just a long dining room that is not a brasserie . The price is good . My steak was fine but as with most of the massive hotels it lacked intimacy and atmosphere
