We went here looking for a quick breakfast as we were leaving Banff. The breakfast bagel was decent at best and the americano was awful. We actually ended up tossing them and going elsewhere - not what you would expect after paying $25.00 for two...More

We called in here for a coffee break and it was so good that we returned for lunch. A lovely selection of sandwiches, soups & cakes all at reasonable prices.

We had been doing a bit of exploring around Banff and while driving down the street to the parking lot, we remembered this small coffee shop from a previous visit. Luckily for us (and numerous others), they were open on Christmas Day. While there weren't...More

Jump Start is the first coffee shop I saw when I parked by the library and I'm so glad I went in! Best chai tea latte in town. Free Wi-Fi too so I was able to get my emails and writing done.
