I was so glad I went in and ordered a sandwich to go. This place has delicious and natural foods. Everything is fresh, the service is great, and the food is amazing. I definitely suggest the BLT sandwich!

Great for takeaways which you can then take to the benches near the river to eat. Elk Stew was delicious and inexpensive. Friendly service and a good choice of light bites.

Omelet mix is tasty sweet bell pepper, tomatoes and bacon how can you wrong match that with coffee and a killer mountain view on a sunny summer morning. Only set back is very limited sitting like 6 inside the cafe then 4 at the patio.

We liked this the best of the food places in Lake Louise. Great tasting wraps. We would go here to get wraps to eat later when we went exploring the back roads and trails. Union Market is a few doors down to supplement your picnic...More
