Double Black


Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2015 - 2018 Winner

Location and contact

Inspired by the mountains we love, live and play in, Double Black is a repose for those who seek a life of adventure. A fusion of café intimacy and big mountain lifestyle is sure to satisfy the intrepid. From the food to the coffee or the ale, nothing escapes our search for the finest products. With over 10 years of international coffee experience, the baristas serve the highest standard of caffeinated drinks. Using the award winning beans from local producer Kicking Horse Coffee, our cup of joe is far from average. The plates are plentiful and presented gracefully using fresh natural products. If ale is your poison, we hold a mouth watering array of local microbrews. If the Horse has chosen

The food is really good with good vegetarian options. The service is really fast even when the cafe is jammed with people. Nice patio. Good, local beer. Great coffee. Prices are really reasonable for food on a ski resort. Only complaint is the portion sizes...More

In my view the best place to grab a bite (delicious sandwiches, pizza etc) and one of their DELICIOUS coffees. Just the perfect amount of crema... It is BUSY, so grab a seat as soon as possible (ski season). Very friendly staff and quick service.

Everyone else was raving about the food at Double Black, but I only went there for the coffee. Three types of Kicking Horse on brew at all times!

Double Black is located in the lift plaza at Kicking House Mountain. This is not a place I expect to find great food and coffee. Double Black surprised me on both counts and has continued to do so across the seasons and the years. They...More

What an incredible place! Located at the very bottom of the gondola, this cafe always has a good view of the action. In summertime this means seeing all the mountain bikers coming down the mountain in front and loading back up onto the gondola to...More
