We came here for a late lunch. The grilled cheese was very tasty, much nicer cheese than typical North America places. Lovely choice of loose leaf tea, in nice big cups too. Could not resist sharing a slice of coconut and carrot cake which was delicious. We've already decided to come back another day!

Great local coffee shop with in house baked artisan breads and treats. When in Banff this is the place to start your day.

Just had the most delicious bakery goods I have had since my visit to Paris. The almond croissants were to die for, perfectly crispy with yummy almond paste. The muffins were moist and flavorful, the cranberry chocolate scone was tasty, and the breads have just the right amount of crispy vs soft on the inside. Wish they had one by... More

We had a Ham & Swiss cheese sandwich which they toast ...very good. Finished with a brownie from the bakery assortment. Downsize was the selection of beverages (exotic health) which had no appeal. We did happen to have water in our pack so suggest you bring your own soft drink if that is your bent.. Very popular with locals so... More

I stopped in one morning for coffee and picked up a few macaroons. They have two flavors - chocolate and almond. The chocolate one was the best I've ever had. I actually stopped by on our way out and purchased a few to take home.

I stopped in with my wife for a late lunch and the food was quite good, albeit rather expensive. I had a breakfast sandwich which was decent, although the cheese was spongy and bland. The kale and quinoa salad was excellent, and so was the coffee. The food was very good, but I'm not sure I would return because of... More

Popped in here because they had Gluten Aware bakery items. Had a couple of their GF muffins and they were delicious. Also tried their GF chocolate macaroon. Definitely to die for! Staff were accommodating and excellent at explaining their Gluten Aware menu choices. Cute patio area for dining outside and a small area inside to sip your coffee. Would head... More

We have visited Wild Flour several times on our current visit to Banff. Everything has been excellent, from the coffee to the delicious scones and granola. A must visit if you appreciate the art of baking.

We ordered breakfast for 2 and ended up costing nearly $35. The food was good but felt a little expensive for what we ordered. Would recommend if you're looking for good homemade food in Banff.

My review is short because I only ordered one small thing on a recent (quick) trip to Banff. We stopped in and I ordered a very average tasting brownie. Kind of bland. Maybe it was gluten free? Anyway, I wouldn't order it again.

Thank Silverwoods
