A nice spot behind the Visitor Info Centre for light lunches, good coffee and home-made treats. Best spot on Yellowhead Highway from Edmonton, before the Mountains.

The serving size for the scrambled eggs was very small so don't expect a large portion.
The to die for oatmeal squares were delicious - so sweet and definitely filled us up after our breakfast.
Their coffee was delicious - get the backpackers blend! The best coffee we had all week.

Friendly staff and a lovely ambiance with the art gallery at the back made for a nice stop over for breakfast.

I had to pleasure to stop at this coffee house on the 4th July when I started my cycling trip from Jasper to Mexico, I had a Cinnamon Role and a Coffee and
halfway through my journey I still keep thinking about it as I never had a cinnamon roll tasting quite like that...in other words it was just phenomenal and a must stop for every visitor.
The only regret I have is that I couldn’t stay longer and taste the other great looking goodies they had on offer!
Great spot, great coffee and food and very friendly staff! Well done

We visited this coffee shop before heading out of town. It’s a lovely place with a young, welcoming staff who do a very good job of dealing with customers and preparing food. The food looked delicious and I had a granola bar - a huge square and my husband a cookie - also large. Coffee was also good. This place is clearly popular with local people. Would definitely recommend this place and I would love to go back and sample more.
