We were looking for a simple lunch in downtown Banff an happened upon Squish Sandwitch Cellar. This cool little "hole in the wall" was a real surprise. Nicole whipped up a beautiful toasted bagle with tasty fresh filling and provided fresh home made soup with bread at really reasonable prices. The great atmosphere and background music were an added bonus... More

Wow! Reminds me of Montreal... Only better! I had the Smoked Meat on rye and would highly recommend it. Thick slabs of perfection.

As we usually have a larger evening meal, we wanted something light for lunch and saw this soup and sandwich cellar. When we entered it was quickly obvious that it was value for money. Ordered two soups (6.95) which came with bread and help yourself to the meat, vegetable and potato soup. Just what we needed.

The vegetarian sandwich did not look anything like the display. It was expensive. Tables were not cleared or cleaned. No decaf drinks unavailable.

The place is in a cellar so a bit out of the way. The sandwiches were very good and I would have given 4 or 5 rating if the price was not that high. to change 13 Canadian dollars for a sandwich is a bit too much. we were 5 people and ordered 4 sandwiched all were very tasty .... More

Turkey sandwich was ok, others not so much. Long wait for service and food prep took a very long time. $3 for a can of pop, we ate and waited for refreshments. Overall expensive and a bit of a let down.

Smoked meat sandwich was very nice but wish we knew they charge extra to share, but they give you an extra bag of chips, Cole slaw and pickle. One of the best values in town.

The sandwiches were good and fair, a little sloppy, with all the condiments falling every which way, which made it hard to eat and enjoy. Nothing stood out about the sandwiches, very average, fair selection. They also don't have fries, which was a disappointment. The side is just bagged potato chips, that you don't get to pick the flavor of.... More

We had a late lunch, so stopped in here for a light dinner. The homemade soup was good, and so was the price.
