“Great place for breakfast!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Wonderful spot for breakfast with good food and coffee. Warm and inviting, the service was quick, but not rushed. Close to the museums we planned on visiting that day, so that was a plus. Clearly a mix of locals and visitors which is always a good sign.

“Large portions of comfort food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

For dinner, this can be a busy place, as it is big enough to take coach parties. But the service is swift and friendly, although we had a couple of inaccurate or forgetful servers. The steak and seafood is good, if not outstanding and the desserts likewise. The loaf of bread brought to the table for starters takes some getting through. Banff is not a cheap place to eat and this is mid-range.

“Great breakfast in Banff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

We had a great breakfast here during our stay in Banff. We sampled one of the special apple pancakes which was delicious if you have a sweet tooth!

Our waiter was very friendly and the prices were very reasonable.

Recommend place to eat if you are staying in Banff.

“Great staff, good value, good food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

We were steered toward Melissa's by a local, and he sure did us a favor. We ended up having breakfast and dinner there, twice! Breakfast wasn't hugely imaginative, but the quality and quantity were there in abundance. For dinner we ordered the beef stew and the beef stroganoff and both were excellent. We had so much we took half our orders back to our cottage for the dogs, who enjoyed the entrees as much as we did. Highly recommended, good value, good service and atmostphere.
