“What a joke...overpriced junk...Gas station food is better...”
Reviewed 2 April 2012

Wanted to try the rave reviewed Patricia's deli however it was closed. Settled for this place. Although it looked good from the menu and they had some baked cookies that scented or masked the air... We thought we would give it a go. Ordered the nicholson pita melt, nachos, and a large bottle of pelligrino water to go. Bill amounted to $27! The Nachos were basic microwave nachos with canned refried beans, black olives/ jalapeños sparsely sprinkled, and melted cheese that was partially burned. Also upon further inspection ... There were remnants of sour cream (which i requested to omit) which was obviously added and removed. They were to lazy to remake it! The "pita melt" was basically a flat bread junk food pizza. It also failed to come with the menu listed side of tzaziki sauce. It was basically microwaved flat pita bread with grocery store ham, cheap white cheddar, and 4 slivers of red pepper and old avocado. It was also overcooked and quite hard, although the grease from the cheese seemed to soften it a tad. Truely disgusting. It was one step above eating food at a gas station.... Or maybe equal! Now that I think of it... Go with a gas station and save your time and money!!!!

In addition to the overpriced prison food, we ordered a double latte and hot tea to the sum of $8. Really didn't think the place could be any worse until I was told to pick my tea out of the BAGS of Lipton tea and two other generic teas. Really?!?! $4 for a freaking Lipton "do it yourself" tea?!

Needless to say, I hope those of you heed my warning when I say to go somewhere else. There are tons of really cute shops in jasper and this isnt one of them. They are trying to tap into the tourist wallet which would be fine if they offered a product worthy of doing so.

Ultimate Fail... Go to Subway before going here!

“Pricey but great food!!”
Reviewed 17 January 2012

Been here numerous times for both sit down and take out food. The cafe has a relaxed atmosphere and modern decor for a quick lunch or breakfast. On the way to the hill before boarding we often grab a 'salmon breakfast sandwich' which are almost 7 dollars but great tasting. They also have sandwiches with avocado, fresh salads and a variety of hot drinks. The menu has numerous options so is sure to offer something for everyone. Staff are friendly and there are many healthy options, freshly made food and we have never been disappointed. Only con is the higher prices but don't mind paying it because we are always happy with what we have gotten. If your more into a quick low priced 'fast food' this is not the place for you.

“A must do for lunch!”
Reviewed 3 January 2012

Awesome food, relaxed atmosphere. If you're in jasper, be sure to stop in for some lunch. One draw back, is no fountain pops or free water.
