“I love the buzz in this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Everytime we come through Jasper on Via, we b-line it straight for this café to find the best baked treats. They are soooo good. This location is the larger of the two (their other store, "The Other Paw" is on Connaught Drive) and carries a large selection of baked fare, our favorites being the cheesecake and tarts. Good eats at both places. One of the few places that still sells my favorite flavored coffee, Irish cream. A tradition every time we visit Jasper. If the train arrives late and you're short on time, "The Other Paw" is a better bet since it's closer to the train station.

“Fresh Baking Great Coffee!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Great coffee and fresh baking. Tough to make decisions looking at that selection of fresh baking in the window. The cinnamon roll was amazing

“Rustic cosy bakery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Excellent baked goods and service, perfect start to-go or for a quick morning grab. Danishes, scones, really filled with chocolate chocolate croissants, savory pastries and buns, great loaves ( I tried the French Herb and it was great toasted at home for days with a hot bowl of soup. Decent prices too. Appreciate the free refill of coffee when you stay and order.

“Always for Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

We always stop at The Bear Paw bakery for breakfast en route to Marmot. The coffee is great, my son swears it is the best hot chocolate, my wife loves the strudel, and I think the breakfast sandwiches are outstanding (but don't over heat!).

We have tried virtually all of the pastries and have no issues recommending this as a must stop by and try to anyone.

“Wasn't impressed with the baked goods”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Maybe we just ended up with the day old scones or something but they were kind of dry and didn't live up to the hype of previous reviews. The staff was pleasant but not overly helpful or anything.
