My boyfriend and I stopped at Evelyn's coffee bar on our way through Banff and it was a lovely little place, with a wide selection of drinks and cakes. The staff were friendly and efficient , and the wifi was good!

While in Banff I didn't just want to go to a regular coffee shop that I would go to at home. I stumbled across this place, literally, as I was in need of coffee. I enjoyed the coffee so much, I went back the next day. Although I didn't sample any of their food, it certainly looked good. Service was... More

After a long drivers arrived in Banff in the rain. Unable to book in to our accommodation we sought refuge in Evelyns, what charming staff who even under pressure of hordes of soggy customers were pleasant and greeted each customer. After a light lunch and catchup on FB with free WiFi we were ready to go!

Stopped here twice for coffee and cake - which were excellent both days. However, they need to train up more people to make the coffee as the wait was too long!! No good if you are on a short break!

First good coffee in Canada! I know it may be controversial but trying to get a cafe latte anywhere in US or Canada is rather difficult. For Aussies who love coffee, this is the only place to come to in Banff. Cheers to Evelyn, Aussie baristas probably work here too I'm guessing!!

This cafe was extremely busy and the staff was disorganized and slow. It took 20 + minutes to get service. The food coffee was fantastic and the cheese cake was great. Prices were high but that's what you expect in Banff.

Made a quick pit stop here / it was ok for a quick coffee but the service was quite slow and whilst we were queuing one helper was serving with one making the coffees and about ten people waiting - behind the counter was the boss and several other staff chatting and organising supplies but not contributing to busting the...
