We eat here often, mostly for breakfast but also dinner. Very cool interior. Log home on Kicking Horse River. Owner Petra is a delight as are all their staff. We enjoy the eggs benny and omelettes, as well as their varied dinner choices.

The restaurant was very pleasant! The building is a log cabin kinda place which is nice and fun to see. The food was excellent. The soup was great and the Caesar salad were both excellent. Caesar salad was quite different than anything I’ve had before...More

The patio overlooking the river was perfect. Service was great. Food was awesome. I would come back here just for the patio but the food was delicious too! Goat cheese phyllo with salad - loved it. Bison burger was awesome!

When we arrived there were no tables for two available, but they quickly offered to seat us at the end of a larger table. The atmosphere was very cozy with that log cabin feel. My steak was good. The server made me a special Sangria...More

Interesting little restaurant - stopped for lunch. I had the Falafel wrap - you don't often see falafel on the menu! It was good. Ate outside on the patio (downstairs), but unfortunately our dog was not allowed even there - so I would say not...More
