Fairly usual tourist cafe at Lake Maligne but it is the location that makes the excellent rating - however the bowl of soup was also excellent

We reached here on our coach tour from Jasper, in time for an early lunch prior to a boat trip on the lake. There were no queues, although later on some queues had built up. The building houses a gift and souvenir shop as well as the cafe/restaurant, which operates a counter service. From the wide range of choices we... More

We popped in here after canoeing on the Lake and we expected mediocre food and expensive prices. We were therefore highly suprised to have a choice of soup, clam chowder and vegetarian chilli. My husband had the chowder, I had the chilli, we each had a couple of rolls and a drink, plus a large cookie and a s'more. The... More

Stopped off here for a coffee and cake. Muffins were really fresh and the hot chocolate was hot and not warm as we've had in most places. Clean restrooms too.

When visiting Maligne Lake, this is the only option if you want some refreshments. We had coffees here which, despite the isolation of the place, were reasonably priced.

We drove out here to see Maligne Lake and discovered this was the only place to eat!! The weather was beautiful that day so we chose to sit outside and have an ice cream and a coffee - wonderful scenery!! The soups looked good, too!!

This is the only place to eat anywhere around Maligne Lake and it is cafeteria style with a wide selection. Soups and chili and stew along with a wide variety of pre made sandwiches. Bowls of fruit, salads, and many different kinds of baked goods round out the menu. The view of the lake is great and we appreciated the... More

We stopped here after hiking around Moose Lake and we already had sandwiches so we just got some chili and soup. It was nothing special as it's more like a cafeteria than a restaurant so it's fine for that reason, but if you can wait then just head back to Jasper for a real meal.
