Offering daily curry specials and samosas, along with homemade soup, sandwiches, other non-curry grab and go favorites, great locally roasted specialty coffees and organic teas, craft beer and regional wines, we hope you find our little cafe & market a great place to stop for a quick snack when passing by, a comfortable meal when meeting friends or family, or the place to go to buy all your favorite Mad Dog Products for your pantry or freezer. Here we now have our booking office and meeting place for our dogsled clients, a casual counter-service cafe with the food that we have become best known for at our markets, and a larger retail area interspersed filled with our own Mad Dog Quality Products and other local market favorites.

Yummy Indian and Artisan Coffee!

The Mad Dog storefront in Dead Man's Flats is a little hidden gem! If you like Indian, just the smell of this shop will make your mouth water! They sell spice mixes, Nature'l teas, beautiful coffee and more! They also make meals, snacks and grab 'n go. There are tables if you have time to enjoy a... read more

In a odd little building we found this unexpected delight... 'Don't judge a book by it's cover!' Beautifully arranged with a direct view of the mountains and your choice of delicious small dishes. A little bit pricey, but I would visit again.

We found this little gem by accident. It says 'grocery' so we were looking for water. It is mostly specialty spices. My husband was feeling a bit hungry to ordered a small stew and we all got a taste, it was amazing. All home made. It also had a proper Barista coffee bar which I wish we would have been... More

This place is delicious! Been going for a few years now and I'm hooked! I'd never had curry until I had Russell's and WOW is it delicious. The cafe had a cozy atmosphere and you can either sit down and enjoy or grab to go. I highly recommend the butter chicken as a "starter" curry then you can work you... More

On your way west and need a bite? Coming home from the ski hill and want to eat? Skip Canmore and seek out this restaurant at Dead Mans Flats. On the westbound side of highway 1 but accessible from the eastbound lanes as well, you will get great sandwiches, good beer, very good Indian and a welcome smile to boot.... More

Very nice atmosphere, great service, delicious food, good prices; hard to believe we were only one of three tables in the restaurant. Only reason I can come up with is location. It is about 5-10 minutes from Canmore but SOOOOO worth the drive.

This place is just outside of Canmore, AB and we found it by accident. (Asked the clerk at Copperstone Resort , just a two minute walk away, about restaurants, ).It is located on a tiny turn off from the TCH, just east of Canmore at Dead Man's Flats.). The name of the place does not accurately reflect the fact it... More

We've enjoyed Russell and Dawn's Canmore curry nights at the pub, and lunches at the Farmers Market, long before they opened their Junction House restaurant. This time we had a large group of friends hungry after a day of skiing, so it seemed like a perfect night to try the restaurant. Junction House is located in Dead Man's Flats, less... More

Had heard good reviews, so maybe went in with expectations too high. Curry was just ok, kinda bland, not great depth of flavor & pretty single-note. We all said we were good with lots of spice and heat and to "bring it on" and we ordered the beef vindaloo and it was the wimpiest vindaloo I've ever had the misfortune... More
