“Big sandwich, definitely not a snack.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

Yes, everyone is right, this place is a bit on the expensive side but the amount of meat that is in the smoked meat sandwich is HUGE. So good vaue. Don't go there unless you are hungry. The service was prompt and friendly but not a place to linger too long. It had a big range of cold drinks and a soup of the day too.

“Great sandwich”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013 via mobile

Great sandwiches. Great service. Loved the sense of being out of the hustle and bustle. Smoked salmon sandwich is very very good.

“Not to be missed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

If you google 'best sandwiches in Banff' Squish is what you get on the search. They are quite pricey at around $13 (plus GST) but are made fresh with loads of filling. I opted for the prawn which was full of huge succulent prawns & made fresh. Staff very attentive, atmosphere & music very good. Definitely not a place to miss whilst in Banff.

The gentleman that served us (I think it may have been the owner) was very lovely and the milkshake he recommended was delicious!

“Great sandwiches!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013

Found this place by accident - just wanted a little something. At $13.75 for a sandwich, I though that was a bit expensive. That said.... its Banff, so I guess that is expected. Anyway, the $13.75 is for a meal, the portions are so generous! The Triple is fabulous, and the Montreal Smoked Meat - is authentic! Yummy. At first the woman at the counter didn't seem very friendly; a bit gruff or at least unenthusiastic - almost as if taking our order was a major inconvenience! When I said that maybe we should go elsewhere, her real and very friendly personality came shining through! She told us about the delicious ingredients of the sandwiches, started to kid around with her employees, and now seemed genuinely happy to have us come to her establishment! As she said, "there are 100 other places you could go to eat, but we have the best sandwiches!". Other reviews have mentioned she is a bit gruff, but give her a chance, and I know she will make you feel as welcome as she made us feel! Try it out - hopefully there will be enough seating because that is in a bit of short supply, but the food is fresh and delicious!
