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.

Indian/Asian curry's and some western fare. if you're on the road between Calgary and Banff/Canmore worth the stop. very friendly service too. I'll be back! We had this place recommended by a few people in Canmore that got their curry's from the Canmore farmers market.

My son surprised us one night bringing some Indian food from the Café. Who would of thought such a little out of the way joint would have such flavourful food.

Family dinner meant we all tried a wide variety of starters and main courses - from the excellent samosas and chips to gorgeous chicken dinner and a flavour packed vindaloo. Definitely worth the little cruise away from ever busier Canmore. Also try their dishes at the Canmore Mountain Market on Thursdays.

Great samosas and chutney. A great spot to avoid the crowds in town and the menu is ideal for new comers to eating curry

I have heard that the Junction House, was a "delicious gem" from many people and I love curry, so I was very excited to stop there for lunch. We walked in the door and were certainly dazzled by the warmth and atmosphere of the converted house, into a mecca of coziness and warmth. We were told by the woman at... More

We've been to the Junction House 3 times and the first time we happened to got here it was a real positive surprise. Being used to eating and cooking curries at home, we weren't expecting to find something better eating out in Alberta. The subsequent visits were just as good. The samosas are excellent. The spices in the curries are... More

I was happily surprised by this little restaurant in the quiet hamlet of Dead Man's Flats. I have to admit my expectiations were not very high when first walking up to the place. I have to say the restaurant was very cozy and the staff were very friendly. A good selection of Indian dishes were on the menu-the butter chicken... More
