The food was excellent. We didn't expect such a delicious, well prepared meal in a breakfast/cafe restaurant but we were pleasantly surprised. The escargot appetizer was unique in its taste and presentation and the salmon crepes and duck l'orange with fresh roasted vegetables were tasty...More

This facility is attached to the Days Inn. The food was very good, the service was pleasant and the dinning room was pleasant. Some tables have windows that face the mountains. We ate breakfast one day and dinner another. A little pricey.

We stopped for a quick breakfast on our way into Banff with friends. This place was misleading from the outside but elegant and crisp on the inside. The service was great and prices were even better. For where this restaurant is located and what they...More
