Although a little pricey for a sandwich and potato chips, it was good! I had the ruben and it came on a marbled bread with lots of meat. laid back atmosphere made it a good stop and relax for some lunch. service was quick and attentive

Went with friends and we found that it was just an expensive sandwich with a few chips on the side. It was in the basement and quite dark -haven't returned since

My family recommended we go to a vegetarian restaurant. That doesn't work for me. We ended up here instead. I had the triple decker ( minus avocado). Other sandwiches enjoyed were smoked salmon, ham and cheese, and the reuben. We enjoyed our lunch so much Friday we went back Saturday. My only gripe is that they are switching from Coke... More

Squish. Who would imagine that it'd be a name of a sandwich shop. Like all else in Banff, this place is a little pricey. I ordered the Tuna Salad sandwich and switched out the coleslaw for extra chips. The server was super fine with that! I'm not a food expert so I'm not sure what kind of bun they use... More

Was very very disappointed in this basement place. I had the reubin sandwich and would say it was the worst I have every tasted. The meat was in thick chunks, the sandwich was soggy and I had to ask for mustard. Did not matter since i did not eat much of it. My friends were also disappointed in the daily... More

Finally decided to try their expensive sandwiches for a picnic, so the order was for takeout. Disinterested server took the order ($13.75 for most sandwiches) and suggested that I take a seat to wait. Instead I had time to go find a nice bottle of wine nearby, chat with my waiting family, and head back downstairs to the unimpressive shop.... More

Was very delicious and a great amount for lunch! Not too expensive either and staff was accommodating for gluten free options. The atmosphere is very Cafe like and nice to sit at.

Banff is a resort town, so expect resort prices. The Montreal Smoked Meat Sandwich is #1 on their menu and it is easy to see why. Good, substantive sandwich with lots of flavor. We also got the Salmon sandwich to take for later and it was again very good.
