Staying in hotel across the road but decided to eat breakfast here after seeing prices for breakfast in hotel. We were not disappointed - great bacon and as usual loads on plate - sets you up for the day 😀

The food was terrific, e.g. the soup of the day, the quesadilla, and grilled chicken burger were all outstanding. Also terrific was the way the wait staff backed each other up, so when yours was busy helping another of their customers, another wait staff was...More

We arrived on a Wednesday evening in mid-September and only had to wait a few minutes to be seated. Casual atmosphere with a good variety on the menu--everything from soups/salads/sandwiches to a limited number of entrees. The quesadilla was outstanding--chock full of veggies, in addition...More

Located inside the International Alpine Hostel we were so happy to finf Bill Peyto's in this small little Lake Louise area where there aren't that many choices. The servers and chefs were young, bright people, the food like the hostel has an international flair -...More

We enjoyed Bill Peyto's Café - actually went there twice on our trip. Once in the afternoon for a late lunch on the deck then the next day ate there for dinner.

Visited on the recommendation of our hotel. No reservation just turn up. Food was reasonably price, and the beer was good. The apple pie and ice cream is to die for, will be going back tomorrow night

In Lake Louise everything is overpriced. This cafe was not as expensive and had a good selection of food. Breakfast filled us up for the day. Big portions and coffee refills. No queues at breakfast but expect to wait in the evening .

We arrived at 6:30pm and they sat us right away. This is a quaint cafe with a view into the kitchen and attentive friendly staff. We both ordered a burger and red wine. It was tasty, enjoyable and reasonable. Nothing fancy but a nice place.

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

Hello- I just have a question for you! We are planning a visit to your area this summer with the Lakeside Lutheran Marching Band. We will be staying at the Lake Louise Inn on July 10, 2016. The next morning we will be leaving for the Columbian Icefields and then on to Banff. Our issue is lunch for the 11th. My question is: do you make cold lunches to go, meaning we could take them on the busses with us and eat them later in the day? If you do, could you please give me a price range and options that we would have? Thank you, Jeanette Jensen Lakeside Lutheran Summer Marching Band
