This cafe is a nice option, as it offers some alternative to pasta, pizza and burgers served in nearby cafes. It is not easy to find, as it is hidden and there is no sign on Village road to this cafe. We ordered chicken souvlaki...More

This was such a fantastic restaurant! We went based on TripAdvisor reviews and were not disappointed. It is located at the Youth Hostel, which accounts for its lower prices (very affordable). We'd read that it can get very busy, but we had no problems getting...More

Great food and service. Close to lake louise. Very reasonable prices. This place is inside a hostel. It's one of the few places in Lake louise where you can sit and enjoy a meal at a reasonable price.

It's approx. 4 km from the Chateau Lake Louise to the Cafe. There is no designated path for pedestrians. The road is quite crowded as it is the only entry and exit to Lake Louise. If you are planning to visit in 2017 it may... More
