The Calamari was excellent, but that was the only thing that was worth the time. The burritos were very dry and un edible for the 2 of us that ordered them. The 2 different sandwiches my friends had were terrible definitely not worth going back.

My family travels frequently between British Columbia and Alberta throughout the year and usually stop around Golden for meals between the trek.

Visiting from the States and stayed at the nearby Cedar Chalets, which is a great relaxing property. Lunched here after a day of hiking and it was terrific. '80s music playing inside brought back plenty of memories!
