Good place to stop for lunch

At Emerald Lake. Great bread basket, salads, Canadian draft beer. Pulled pork was quite spicy but good, bison burger good, potatoes very undercooked.

We had take out sandwiches from here one day and the girl behind the take out counter was just rude and unfriendly, the sandwiches on the other hand were excellent. We had lunch in the restaurant and the service was great. The food was average.

My family and I stopped at the Mount Burgess Dining Room for coffee and desserts after completing the Emerald Lake loop track. The desserts were superb.

Set in a wonderful location and looking very attractive we went into this cafe/restaurant that, at the time, was deserted. We were turned away and sent to an outside window to get our coffee as, at that time, we were only looking for coffee. Perhaps the management need to advise their staff that its customers who pay their wages and... More

We happened upon Cilantro at the end of a walk. We stopped for a late lunch and had a round of fantastic buffalo burgers and some delicious salads. The beer the server recommended was fantastic and the service was very warm and friendly. This place comes strongly recommended.

We had lunch here and it was great. I had the salad with scallops that were seasoned and cooked to perfection. Along with it I ordered the soup of the day, a potato chowder, which was extremely tasty. My husband had a sandwich with fries and he thoroughly enjoyed it. The server was friendly and the service was very good.... More

The food is pricey, of course, but in a place like this half of what you pay is because of its location; the menu is outside, so there's no reason to complain about the prices after you've been there. The terrace was lovely, but you don't really enjoy the whole view of the lake, which is actually behind the building.... More

We ate here for a late lunch recently after a days hiking at nearby Lake O'Hara. The food,being kind here..was mediocre at best. We ordered a Caesar salad,pulled pork sandwich and Quesadilla. Firstly the Caesar salad was possibly the worst we've ever eaten...a lettuce heart cut in quarters with a very vinegary dressing drizzled on top along with one strip... More

The food is alright but slightly expensive. No vegetarian options. There is a cafe attached which sells cheaper food like sandwiches on the side. We overlooked it otherwise would have dined there. Lake view is the only thing good there.
