The Bright Spot was a friendly, warm and inviting atmosphere combined with great tasting food and warm service, It is rare that I can go to a restaurant and eat ANYTHING I wish on the menu-they have it ALL. I suggest the Pizza and Greek dishes, since everything is homemade, you really do not find this often anymore. The food... More

Just leaving the restaurant and will NEVER look back. Service was ok, friendly enough, but my brother-in-law ordered a hamburger steak and eggs and received the house special instead. Not a big deal, he ate it. We were seated close to the kitchen door, we could see the pass from where we were sitting and the cook kept coming out... More

This is my favourite place to go for breakfast when in jasper. Ive been many times and will go many more. Lots of menu options at a good price. Its a bit of a quiet family atmosphere so its best to keep the heavy swearing used to tell story's of the previous nights shenanigans at a minimum. The place is... More

Mom & pop style, good simple food at a fair price. Service is usually right on par. Doesn't look like much from the outside as its attached to a gas station but overall good food.

Tired of the restaurants,located in Jasper's "Tourist Downtown",that mainly cater to tourists with credit cards,that have high or no credit limits,then drive over to the west end of Jasper,to 701 Connaught Drive,where you will find the diner-style "Bright Spot Family Restaurant",attached to a PetroCanada gas station.This is the kind of nondescript restaurant,that you will find in most small towns of...

We went here for a better breakfast than the free continental breakfast at our hotel. We were happy with the food and the service. It is your basic breakfast place and they make excellent french toast.

Even restaurant owners go to the bright spot for breakfast. Well run, family affair. Great food. And the chef makes a great gravy

Is a must go attraction in Jasper. I went with friends on sunny day. We booked the tickets in advance to beat the ques. It is taking about 15min to get to the top. Views are breath taking. Mountains, lakes, woods and whole town of jasper you can see from there. Great photo opportunity. Will visit again when I will... More
