We enjoyed dinner here. It was great value for money in Lake Louise (where everything is overpriced). Staff were very friendly and efficient. Great casual setting. Would definitely recommend!

We were at Bill Peyto's Cafe in the afternoon, and had a bad and disappointing experience. The menu didn’t include much vegetarian options, and the staff didn’t agree to change some dishes. The food itself was much too spicy- the Arrabbiata pasta was uneatable. The salads also weren’t good, and didn’t seem to be fresh. So if you visit Lake... More

We had several meals at this cafe. Absolutely excellent. Great quality, great taste, great service! I had the chilli, super thick and tasty. My hubby had a Ruben, lots of meat and well seasoned. Breakfast is also very good. Atmosphere is super comfy.

Nothing overly special about this place, but very solid restaurant, especially given the area (Most places are touristy & overpriced). The food was of great quality without breaking the bank, the dining room had a great feel, and the drinks were delicious.

Unique place in Lake Louise. Pastas come with garlic bread and ice cream. My bison burger was good, and my husband's chicken curry was quite tasty. Get there early because it gets crowded. There's no sign on the main road, so it's hard to find. It's in a hotel or youth hostel complex.

Good food and super service for a fair price. The burgers are very good, and the traditional ale is a good beer to end the day.

My husband and I stopped here for lunch after looking at the menus and prices. With everything in LL being so overpriced and pretentious, I am so glad this place exists. I had the pesto chicken sandwich and let me tell you, it was awesome! My husband enjoyed his meal (can't remember what it was) enough that he decided to... More

I took our entire extended family here for dinner, and couldn't have been more pleased. Everyone thought the food was excellent, and compared with other restaurants in the area (where we had looked at the menus) the prices were a bargain. It had an incredibly interesting mix of patrons, but that's probably because the restaurant is attached to a hostel.... More

We ate lunch here after visiting lake Louise and moraine lake. They had a very small sign in the side of their building, but we were hunting for anywhere to eat. It is a small dining room attached to a hostel. The food was fine but not anything spectacular.
