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 arrived at Emerald Lake and it was near lunch time. We didn't have much time at all, and the waitress went out of her way, to assist in getting us some toasted sandwiches and nice coffee. We had this at an outside table right next to the gorgeous Emerald Lake. We really appreciated the thoughtfulness of the waitress who... More

We stopped for lunch at the restaurant on July 14, 2015. Place was really busy. Have to wait for long 25 min to get in. Maddy, our waiter was pushy on us to place the order. When we ask questions regarding the portions (just want to make sure that we have enough food), she reply that the size of the... More

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
