We both started off with the soup of the day which was a carrot, coconut and coriander home made, thick soup. It came with very delicious garlic bread and was so cheap ($6)!! We then both moved onto the elk burger with extras of bacon...More

We were staying at The Post next door, and wanted something simple. I ordered the flapjacks which were delicious. The place is a typical ski type eatery, but filling and great. Nothing fancy. Service was very very good, they were extremely attentive.

It's approx. 4 km from the Chateau Lake Louise to the Cafe. There is no designated path for pedestrians. The road is quite crowded as it is the only entry and exit to Lake Louise. If you are planning to visit in 2017 it may... More
