Best breakfast ever

Went for breakfast on the way to Lake Louise and it turned out to be the breakfast I've ever had. The squashed was delicious and the eggs looked free range. Would definitely recommend this bistro.

Excellent food and chef provided small portions for those who can't eat the giant meals that it provides.

Didn't get the usual warm welcome here - coffee was good and used the facilities and free wi-fi so cant complain really but didnt get the impression they were keen to have the passing trade - maybe wrong might just have been a bad day

Hubby and I had dinner here recently as we had heard so much about this Bistro. The interior is cozy and very typical login cabin style. Dinner was good, well presented and tasty but I have had better fine dining experiences. Do not underestimate the power of a white table cloth I say.. Our table was clean but the varnish... More

We stopped by for lunch and the bistro is wonderfully quaint, the food is good (though not exceptional) and the service is very friendly! I had chicken fingers and those came with a homemade chipotle aïoli and my mom had a BLT sandwich (on request as it is not on the menu). It is definitely a place to see, the... More

Ate two dinners here. The first night our food was fabulous. The next night was busier and the food was less than expected. Our burger and the chicken on the waffle were very over done. The staff were very friendly and efficient. I would recommend the tomato salad, the vegetarian eggplant cannelloni and the waffle chicken dish.

Been here several times before over the years, this time I had Bison Stroganoff, spouse had wild salmon. Salmon was good, but expensive. Stroganoff was absolutely wonderful, and at a very reasonable price

Fifteen of us came for dinner tonight. One of my friends asked specifically if the chicken on the chicken waffle had vines and he was told that yes it had bones. He did t want to fight with them so he ordered a steak. The steak was mediocre. The others who had the chicken waffles had no bones and they... More

Hi Thank-you for putting up a review, I am glad overall you had a good experience. I would like to address some of the issues you have brought forward; we had two large tables (one being yours) book last minute that afternoon. I had two servers on for the evening, one of which was new (this is not your concern)... More
