Great Cafe and Pizzeria!

Pearl's Cafe is basically where you should start all you hikes! It has some amazing breakfasts and packed lunches for your adventures. In the afternoon it changes into a pizzeria which is also a great way to finish off your adventures. It has free wi-fi for those that "need" to stay in touch. A... read more

We spent 3 days in Waterton in August 2014. By day 3 we had grown tired of the overpriced food and mediocre service at other area restaurants. We walked into Pearl's by accident. We were greeted by the staff with a warm welcome and friendly smiles. Unsure what to order, Julie recommended the homemade pot pie. It was reasonably priced... More

It's so nice to hear we provided you with a great experience during your visit to Waterton. The chicken pot pie was a guest favourite throughout the summer, I'm glad you enjoyed it too. Complimentary Wi-Fi definitely is a bonus, especially when most connections in the park are so slow. We hope to see you again in the near future. More

We appreciate you taking the time to write us a review, and it's great to hear we were able to provide you with a good Wi-Fi signal (we brag it's the best in the park). Next time you visit Waterton give one of our famous Apple Pie French Toast a try! More

The friendly staff creates a nice morning vibe, with coffee and a nice little breakfast. The bagel sandwich is perfect for a morning start. The pastries are also quite varied and tasty. This is the way to start your morning in Waterton!!!

We ordered two hikers lunches the night before. It was ready on time the next morning, but it included a "freshly baked" muffin and we were offered one from the case. Having been there the night before, we knew they were day old muffins. They explained that the baker had not come in that morning so they didn't have any... More

We visited Pearl's twice in a short stay in Waterton. Very pleasant staff drinks and food. We did not feel in any way unwelcome when we spent a couple of hours out of the way of unseasonal snow. Wifi was an added bonus as it was very poor in our hotel.

Stopped by here so my son could get some wi fi to do his fantasy football draft!! We enjoyed a glass of wine while he did that. The place was bustling with diners. Very friendly staff.

We ate breakfast at Pearls. I have never had stuffed French toast with blueberries and cream cheese. It was awesome. We had a handmade pizza for dinner and it was delicious. The wifi service was an added treat since the wifi in our room was not good.
