A great place to pop in for a well crafted coffee and lunch. Their soups are my favourite!! Conveniently located right across from the Visitor Info Centre for those that visit from out of town.

Nice place to take a break from the drive. Relax, have a coffee and look around a bit. Lots of cool items hanging up - pictures, sayings, etc. There is a small store attached with tourist items for sale. Well worth the stop.

Nice place to pick up treats to eat on the train that was going back to Jasper AB. Didn't have time to sit and eat but our tour bus driver seemed to really like his lunch :) The banana bread and muffins were great! Very friendly staff.

This restaurant is located in the town railway station, built in the early 20th century by the Grand Trunk Pacific, which went broke and became part of Canadian National. Anyway, there is a souvenir/art shop in the building. The restaurant serves up nice, homemade fare. Local art-for-sale adorns the walls.

This is the town's Visitor Center/Train Station (still active), gift shop, and cafe. I read other reviews about surly managers, etc, but we had very friendly service, some of the best home made food we have yet had, with very friendly, happy to please waitress/cook. All the locals ate there too, which speaks volumes. We had homemade corn chowder, and... More

Had to cancel our order because we didn't have cash and didn't realize they would not accept plastic until we sat down and noticed a small sign. Waitress should inform before the order.

I would not recommend this restaurant. The lady at the counter did not appear to want our business. They had fly things on the doors with the doors open. There was a cold breeze. She did make any attempt to fix the problem. Others in the cafe were wearing jackets and coats. She was busy talking to locals. My spouse... More

I have never experienced a restaurant quite like this one. The ordering was so confusing and the lady working there (possibly the owner) was very unfriendly. We were told that this was the best place for breakfast but when we first came up to the counter, we only saw coffee and pastries. We were then told (by another customer) to... More
