“Fabulous breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

We were staying at Tunnel Mountain Lodge and only found out about this hideaway through Trip: what a find! Amazing cooked breakfast and a delightful member of staff serving. We were made to feel very welcome and we were made up for the rest of the day exploring Banff.

“Hard to find - but worth it in the end!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013 via mobile

We went here as a family of 4. We had read about it on the Internet as a local attraction but it is situated inside the Banff Alpine Centre - a hostel and was quite difficult to actually find it - you knew you were near, but the entrance is actually inside the centre ! The food was amazing and presented so well considering it was just a young lad doing it all - taking the order, cooking and serving! We were made v welcome and a gent alone on another table was v friendly and talked to us about the different ski resorts in the area. The food was reasonably priced - would recommend this place for an informal meal.

“A perfect 'pick-me-up' breakfast.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

We were staying at the hostel and Cougar Pete's provided the ideal post-travel/jet-lag breakfast!
freindly staff as in the reast of the hostel, accomodating and wnt the extra to help me work out what I could eat off the menu (being lactose intollerant).
Not a large venure, I'm not sure I would drive up from town especially, but a huge bonus to have on site for the hostel guests!
