This place is situated in a sneaky location. There is not really any signage out front and it is located in the rear of the hostel. Once you find it you will be treated to great local cuisine, spectacular service, and great prices.

It's approx. 4 km from the Chateau Lake Louise to the Cafe. There is no designated path for pedestrians. The road is quite crowded as it is the only entry and exit to Lake Louise. If you are planning to visit in 2017 it may... More
