Could not believe how economically priced the breakfast was when we dined here. Genuinely friendly service. Wonderfully prepared food. An absolute delight!

Good breakfast, good lunch. Try the Alpine Stack for lunch. I enjoyed it so much I had it 2 days in a row. My husband's chicken burger was exceptional - a whole breast of chicken. The service was prompt and staff very friendly.

You don't come here for gourmet meals, but the atmosphere is old-timey and facilitates chatting with people at neighbouring tables. We had burgers and fries, which were quite good (the sautéed mushrooms were fresh and tasty) and an absolutely fantastic sticky toffee pudding which was worth the trip right there. Service was friendly, prices reasonable.

More of a cafe than a restaurant. Very quiet when we arrived but was overflowing within 15 mins. Only two waitresses serving and one had her arm in a sling but was doing a good job. They lost our starter order, which made our stay much longer. My main of fish and chips was really good, the fish had not... More

We travel between Vancouver and northern Alberta quite often using Valemount or Jasper as a stopover most times. In Valemount we tend to alternate between Great Escape and Cariboo Grill for our dinner. The food served at the former establishment is about average, and the best thing about it is that you can order a small portion if you are... More

We stopped for lunch on way through. My buddy had a clubhouse, I had a veggie sandwich. Sandwiches were great. Onion rings were ordinary. Coffee needed help. Service was fine. I'd probably stop again on the strength of the sandwiches.

The cafe portion of the restaurant was the only part open at the time of the visit. Food was great and staff as well.

Not fancy - more of a diner, but a good meal & good value: dinner for two with beer & large glass of wine for under $40. Spaghetti & meatballs was great - home cooked meat sauce.
