Had a fabulous breakfast here for a decent price, especially compared to many places which had ridiculous prices. Service was good, decor was lovely and most of the art is for sale. Nice place.

You can get breakfast, lunch and dinner here. It is reasonably priced. If planning a hike, go for breakfast as soon as the restaurant opens. It gets crowded at times, especially at supper.

Stopped through Lake Louise for the night, stumbled across this place in a hostel. This place is a lot cheaper than most restaurants in lake Louise. We went for dinner and for breakfast. Friendly staff and good atmosphere. Recommended if your on a budget on your way through.

We were passing through looking for some affordable eats in Lake Louise. Found this restaurant and were very pleased with the choice. The special when we were there was a jalapeño cheddar beer soup (very tasty). The chicken quesadilla was stacked with veggies and very tasty. The chicken burger was really good, too. Our only disappointment was that the fries... More

Ate here with our family of four and found the food and service very good. Great kids menu and varied main menu. Small but tasty selection of local beers. The food was great tasting and great value and although it was tricky to find it was worth the effort.

Small bistro style restaurant with some different menu choices. Don't be put off by the fact it's located within a hostel. Staff were friendly and food freshly cooked and tasty.
