My awesome "last supper"

Great cafe here. Service is awesome. Pizza was amazing. It was my last meal before heading on the trails for a week and I was so happy with the choice.

Attempted to have a coffee which they advertised on a sandwich board outside. Server did not seem interested in serving us at all. Music was very loud and obnoxious. We took the coffee. which we eventually got and went outside to get away from the atmosphere

After a long day of hikes was nice to find this quiet cozy little restaurant with patio and friendly staff. Thoroughly enjoyed the "Greek pizza" and a cool beer.

We stopped into the general store for supplies after a long hike. The 2 efficient young cashiers suggested Pearl's for the best pizza in Waterton. They were right. We got some wine and a medium specialty pizza and it was superb! The service was friendly and kind and we left happily fed.

I was with my wife. A casual atmosphere and very friendly staff. We got a huge very tasty pizza: Blackiston with ham, pineapple and cheese.

I was underwhelmed. Not a lot of baked goods and the coffee was actually not drinkable but it was too late as we had already gone back to the campsite. The cinnamon buns were good though.

We're sorry to hear you were disappointed during your visit, sounds like you must have caught us on a busy day when we had ran out of baked goods (our bakers work as fast as they can but great baking takes time!) We apologize you didn't enjoy the coffee you were served, we are working with each of our baristas... More

Besides good food, they have tons of hiking info. Don't miss it! They sponsor the Triple Crown award which can get you on their board of honor plus a t-shirt.

Bagel BELT for breakfast was delicious, as were the muffins. The coffee was not very good on this visit. My latte was just not made properly at all, and the coffee tasted much weaker and more watered down than our visit last summer. The staff were friendly but seemed overwhelmed (maybe short staffed?)

We went here for lunch. It was very tasty. My husband had a pizza that was very good and I had a chicken panini. We ate on the patio and enjoyed warm day and the scenery. The service was great and so was the food.
