What a beautiful building with amazing food, very friendly staff and lovely beer. Get there early to get a seat. Staff explain each cut of meat. The lobster can be ordered fresh and you can choose your meal.

Good breakfast. Good portions. Families welcome! Kids get to colour with pencil crayons while waiting for the meal. Kids served first. We had a table by the window which was great. Reservation recommended but not necessary. We didn't have reservations but only waited about 10 minutes.

We always have breakfast at Mellisa's when we stay in Banff. They have a great menu; Their service is always excellent and the breakfasts are nicely done. You can't go wrong eating at Mellisa's!

The gem of a restaurant is located just off Banff Ave. and it's amazing! We enjoyed the large menu with lots of variety. The restaurant had great customer service, and an excellent menu. The carb, asparagus omelette was mouth watering. We also topped the morning off with delicious milk shakes!

A pleasant and filling breakfast at one of Banff's established restaurants. Traditional breakfast fair at Banff prices - unfortunately there are no deals to be had unless you make breakfast yourself. They have a kids menu but still charge over $3 for a glass of milk, even for kids. Pleasant service.

Great food. Had a really good breakfast, and you can order eggs benny as a single, if you only want one portion. Always a line, but that shows what a great place this is. Home style comfort food.
