Cool place with a great menu. Unbelievably slow though. 10 minutes i waited for 2 coffees. The servers I think were tired from partying too much the night before. Too bad becuase the food looks good. I would not go back again.

Lots of customers but line moves fast. Great to get sandwiches for packing a lunch but we ate a hot sandwich outside.

The baked goods and calzone were good the half dozen times I stopped by in July and another time in August (2012), the service kind of abrupt, bordering on rude. As was the case when I ordered a decaf coffee. The server laughed at me and offered the other (non-decaf) brewed selections. Upon clarifying that I can only drink decaf (heart condition) I was offered a decaf americano for a higher price, with no offer of charging the brewed coffee price (as has been my experience in other places when there is no fresh decaf available). FYI: the other place has brewed decaf and it has always been fresh.
This was after waiting in line for 12+ minutes.
For a place that relies on tourists, many of whom are seniors, this experience was surprising.

Stopped in for French Toast, Wraps, Coffee, and such. Nice place. Good Food! Would recommend. Convenient location in the central spot in Lake Louise. Picnic tables, garbage and recycling nearby. Parking lot can be crowded and hectic. I seem to remember that there was a specific exit you needed to use if you wanted to turn in a certain direction. Believe that one of the parking lot exits leads to a road with a boulevard that you can't cross.

The locals seem to like it over the competition, cappuccino was good, service a bit slow? Nothing much more to say..
