Vegan, Vegetarian, gluten-free and raw options are always available.Our Specialty coffees are organic, fair-trade and served in a ceramic mug that invites you to stay in the warm bakery atmosphere. If you are keen to get out and explore the national park, know that our take-out packaging is made from biodegradable, compostable, and recycled materials.In the evening, you may well find a unique community event hosted at Wild Flour.

“Breads worth stopping for”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

We try to organize our trips through Banff so we can stop and buy a few loaves of this excellent bread. For best selection, must get there early in the morning. Our favourites are mixed grain and 100% whole wheat. The Wild Flour is a happening place, always bustling and great service. Give yourself a treat and stop by.

“Best cafe and bakery in Banff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We do not live in Banff, but we visit the Wild Flour bakery every time we go to Banff. The wild flour has outstanding breakfast options as well as very tasty vegan chocolate cake. The cake does not have any dairy products but tastes amazing.

“Great place for a light lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

My husband and I had a light lunch of soup that came with their terrific bread. A cup of soup + bread is only $4! The soup was excellent. They have interesting sandwiches as well. We had some of their date bars and fig and anise cookies, and they were very tasty. We think this is a great place for a light, quick healthy lunch in expensive Banff.

“Cold coffee! But great potential!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013 via mobile

Hard to rate this place. Very lively and busy. The bread was great! I ordered the waffles for breakfast with a latte. Although both tasted good, the waffles were cold and the latte luke warm! I would give a higher rating if my food and hot beverages were the appropriate temperature.

“Great lunch/cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Stopped in for lunch and had the soup and salad special. They always have a menu that is changing for specials. This spot is reliably good for a quick lunch or snack. They have great coffee and teas. The desserts are my favourite . I love the healthy selection of dessert "balls" they have too.
