We had elk burgers. One with side salad and the other with fries. Both had bacon added as an extra. Recommend the elk burger, but it needs the bacon. Salad was fine. Fries were the disappointment - wizened and overcooked. Apple pie and ice cream...More

The two of us went for dinner here, guided by TripAdvisor's ranking. And although it's a simple place, the food was delicious! We had a burger and Thai stir fry and lemon pie for desert - I can recommend them all. A very tasty meal...More

If you are pressed for time and want a no frills Elk burger or quesadillas and a local draft ale you can't go wrong here. Inexpensive and quick service in the hostel-located little restaurant.

My husband and I enjoyed dinner at this restaurant one evening. The tables were all full inside, so we opted to eat outside on their terrace, rather than waiting. We shared the table with another couple on a picnic table, and enjoyed each other's company...More

We ate here a couple of times while staying in the hostel after a day of exploring and hiking the area. I wasn't disappointed with anything we tried. They have some good bottled soda which is made locally and worth trying!

We stayed at the hostel in which this restaurant is located so it was convenient for breakfast and dinner. The food is good and prices are decent. Couldn't ask for more in the crazy place called Lake Louise village

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
