An absolute MUST! If you're a meat lover, you HAVE to try the Rocky Mountain wrap! Coffees are also delicious and so are the desserts! There's more than enough seating space.. however, free wifi and some toilets would be nice :)

I had a reuben sandwich and a coffee, and both were great. The mustard on the sandwich was a little on the hot side, but it was filled with well with a lot of meat and sauerkraut and the bread was tasty and well-toasted. The service was great - friendly and knowledgeable, the food well-made and the coffee hit the... More

We ate breakfast here twice and enjoyed it both times. They offer breakfast wraps or bagel sandwiches, traditional breakfast plates (eggs, hash browns, bacon/ham/sausage and toast). The BLT was also really good. Add an espresso drink, and breakfast is complete! Eat here instead of the pricey Fairmont. One thing to note, there are only counter seats along window and one... More

We popped in for lunch and while it is a little cozy on a busy day, it was great. The food was fresh, tasty, and hot. We will go back and I'd recommend it to anyone.

I have friends who live in Lake Louise and introduced me to the Trailhead. Now every time I am close by I stop in. The breakfast wraps are delicious. So is the London fog, and the staff are friendly and very efficient. 5 stars!!

Hit this place every morning for breakfast before hitting the slopes of Lake Louise. Be ready for questions on fillings, type of wrap and type of sauce and whatever your choices you will have the most tasty wrap (or bagel) you have encountered for a while! Enjoy! p.s. they also have a wonderful choice of tea if coffee if not... More

Superb coffee and sandwiches, lots of locals coming through so you know it's good! It's a small place so you might have to wait a little.

I always visit this place whenever I travel to the Canadian Rockies. It was always my favorite for 4 years. But 2 weeks ago when we visited Lake Louis again, we went there twice, each time our order were too salty, not tasty any more.

Good place to stop and grab a quick and easy breakfast or lunch. We had the donair and falafel. Both were tasty and reasonably portioned, with a good amount of vegetables in each. Note that while there is some bar seating around the edge of the restaurant, there isn't much. Not a sit down place.
