“Kicking Horse is KickAss Cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Traveling and we always search for Starbucks - not because they are the best but because they are consistent. Kicking Horse Cafe is incredible and reminds me of Stumptown. They make their own coffee from grounds. It is smooth and rich. I had the cafe latte and my husband had the Chai. They even have gluten free bakery. We love this place!

“History in the Making”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Coffee connosures will delight in the many different varieties served up at the modest cafe set right inside the flagship factory of Invermere most famous company. A real built from the ground up success story in the making. Along with the wonderful aroma, you can almost feel that vibe the second you walk through the door.

“Impressed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Went here on a Tuesday morning. Easy to find and lot's of parking. The place is quite large and it was pretty busy. We did not have to wait very long for our order. I had a mocha and brownie. The mocha was good and the brownie was out of this world. My partner had one of the sandwhiches, she loved it. I was sad, I didn't order one.

Great to hear you enjoyed our Cafe, you must have had a nice sugar high after the mocha and brownie. Next time you're out for a visit you'll have to try the sandwiches. Hope you enjoyed the beautiful fall weather.

“Always good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

I have been several times but usually just for coffee but this time we decided to have a sandwich. The crusty roll it was made on was so good fresh and chewy. I had the turkey and it was real turkey which was a pleasant surprise. The cakes look rally good but portions are huge.
I had a mocha to drink and it came with a really cute design but tasted better than it looked.
The only issue I had was there was 3 staff behind the counter which made things go very quickly but there were several dirty tables and we had to clear away dishes so we could find a clear table. When we left we saw that outside people had done the same thing all the dirty dishes were piled on one table.. Over all very good.

“Great place for great coffee!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012 via mobile

Traveling through Invermere to Panorama I have stopped here for a caffeine fix and some coffee to take home. It can be very busy, but there is usually enough staff to make the wait time short. Mochas are excellent and they offer several types of coffee beans. Always willing to answer questions, and I will continue to come here when I am in the area.
