Wish we had found this place at the start of our trip, when we were looking for reasonable price coffee and breakfast. Definitely one to try any time of day.

We were delighted to have great coffee this morning! Everything we tried was super delicious, home made sandwiches, and fast friendly service. Highly recommend for a quick bite and coffee before heading out on your adventures in the beautiful Banff National Park.

Prices were right but service is ok. The servers did not appear to look interested to serve their customers.

Great sandwiches! Very nice place to stop for a quick bite. Soup was great too. Men at the service counter were both very pleasant and efficient.

We wanted a no fuss humble sandwich and hot drink. What we got was that and a view over the Bow River towards Sulphur Mountain to invite a second visit.

The coffee is far from being good. The espresso was bad, and the cold American wasn't as good at other places. This is not a place for real coffee lovers

On Canada Day, I stopped here with my family. We had some good coffee, and it was really a nice place to stop. Staff is friendly. Coffee is not super, but fine.

After a good hike along the Bow River was ready for a cold coffee and a chance to sit down. Excellent coffee, friendly service, comfortable seating. Exactly what I was looking for.

Dropped into Jump Start today for the first time in a couple of years. It used to be one of my favourite stops after skiing in Banff. Was disappointed to find they are now making their regular brewed coffee extremely weak. And I tried all...three. I won’t be returning.More

This place is located in one of the least busy areas in Banff. If you're not into the crowd at Starbucks, Evelyn's or Wildflour, definitely grab a cup here. The store is owned by an incredibly kind Korean family. They're a very dependable business.
