Expensive, but delicious

There's an array of offerings in this little cafe. It's all expensive, but all pretty delicious. So you get what you pay for.

The food at Pearl's Cafe was very good and reasonably priced, and the personalized, friendly service from Jantz was exceptional.

There was one server for the entire dining room. She was a hard worker, did her best, but it truly was too much for one person to handle. She had to make the to-go special coffees in addition to taking care of the dining room, making her job even busier. We ordered the soup of the day, a tomato basil.... More

We stopped here as it was across the road from our hotel. My husband and I had the breakfast sandwiches and our children had the stuffed french toast. The young girls serving were slow unfortunately. Our food and coffee was delicious but again the two young girls working seemed overwhelmed by running the food out, clearing tables and serving as... More

Went there for supper very small menu so we had pizza which was good. Not a great atmosphere would not recommend for an evening meal but I do believe they have special brownies behind the counter for the waiting staff!

Waymarker, Public Relations Manager at Pearl's, responded to this review

Even though we are Pearl's Cafe in the morning, we wear two hats and turn into Pizza of Waterton in the evenings. Our atmosphere is very casual and our completely competent staff act as such, we are sincerely offended by your slanderous suggestion. Our menu is small offering mostly pizza because our specialty is serving Waterton the same delicious pizza... More

We had lunch at Pearl's - we ordered sandwiches which were very good. To make the meal more presentable I would recommend they add a garnish to the plate - maybe a couple of pickles. The next day I went back on my own for a cup of coffee. I asked for a decaf only to be told "decaf coffee... More

We stopped on day one for a couple of beers. As noted, I recommend the black lager – I did not find it anywhere else in town. The service getting the beer was quite lacking/unappealing. We ordered two sandwiches for the next day – as they seem to be one of few places we could pick up before 8 am.... More
