Enjoyed our early evening meal here. There were no crowds at that time. Soups are homemade daily. Prices were reasonable. Note: may be hard to notice as it is downstairs.

It was a rainy day and lots of people had already filled the cafe's up and down the avenue. We ventured down the stairs to find the Squish with open tables. My son enjoyed a Canmore brew and we all had the tomato basil soup!...More

We had a quick turnaround and needed a quick place to stop. The sandwich only was around $13 CAD. A little joint in the basement of the shopping area. It took about 10-15 minutes to get our sandwiches.
