“Good Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

Four of us ate a very satisfying breakfast here. Portions were huge and well presented and this place can be recommended for satisfying that bacon and pancake craving!
Service couldn't have been more efficient or friendly and the cost was very reasonable.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

stopped in for breakfast on our way to the airport. we had a party of 8. service was perfect, all by a waiter who took all of our orders without writing it down. always amazed at how some folks can do that. breakfast was excellent.

We had a lovely meal and a fabulous evening. There was plenty of choice on the menu so plenty for the fussiest of eaters. The staff are so helpful and very friendly.

“No Missteak at Melissa's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

If you go to Melissa's more than likely there will be a line up. This family restaurant and building has been around for many years. Melissa's serves great food and large portions and at very reasonable prices for Banff. I've been here for breakfast and lunch and recommend the Eggs Benedict everytime. My son enjoys the Joe Canadian Burger with bacon, sauted mushrooms and Canadian cheddar, with a mountain of fries and my husband had the Chef Salad which was huge! The interior is of a log cabin, and has a real homey, comfortable feel.

“Yummy Steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

The price and value is decent at this resturant especially for Banff.

Filet Mignon was excellent and the peppercorn sauce actually contained peppercorns. Steak is served with salad and two sides so the price is on par with what you would get at Caesars in Calgary.
