We ate here as we were staying next door at the post hotel. The staff were lovely, the food was tasty and affordable. We were able to sit next to a lovely little fireplace.

This is a great place to eat. The day we ate there the black bean soup was the best and the meal was even better. Yes I recommend this retaurant to the max. Staff was really cool as well.

Brilliant friendly and tasty food. Generous portions of freshly prepared food - can recommend the Thai. Relaxed ambiance, busy yet efficient service. If you are there don't miss out.

The restaurant is located in the Hi Lake Louise Alpine Center and is not easily visible from the road. It is right across the street from the Lake Louise Inn. The service was laid back. It was not full, but we waited to be seated...More

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
