“Exceptional veggie panini on homemade focaccia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013 via mobile

Try the grilled sandwiches. They are outstanding. We ordered our sandwiches to go at 10:00 and they were still delicious at 2:00 when we ate them at the top of Ink Pots. Yum.

“Best coffee we had in Canada”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

After a 2 week holiday we can say this was the best coffee we tasted. Just great. Once we found this we came at least once a day while we were in Banff and the standard of coffee never wavered. It's also a nice place with friendly staff and good food (it's also a bakery). Lots of local customers which is always the best sign. In fact the one day we went back for lunch it was bursting at the seams, and this was before high season when most, if not all, other places were pretty empty. Great to see an independent coffee shop doing so well.

“great sandwiches and pastry”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

This place at lunchtime is packed. There are folks waiting for your table. healthy food. They won't take US money, so bring your plastic or Canadian money.

“could this be the best coffee in North America?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

2nd visit to a wonderful little coffee shop that seems to be always busy. Great panini and soup selections that tempt your tastebuds. The coffee is the best I have ever had in Nth America - and I am a coffee snob being from Melbourne and all.... people who like starbucks will be greatly dissapointed
