This is a very popular bakery for sure and was lined up for most of our visit . The coffee and treats were great ! Our only concern was the lack of covid protocol. There was no one cleaning the tables when guests left ,...the door knob was never wiped after the multitude of guests constantly touched it , the coffee machines were self serve and never cleaned , there was no hand sanitizer to be seen until you went near the washroom - but it was empty … there were very busy but these little things make a difference… It was concerning as this is the day after Alberta decided to shut down …More

They often have lineups, and for good reason, their pastries are really good! They do open early, so you can go early if you want to avoid lineups. Pro tip, go to the express window if you only want coffee (and not a specialty drink).

Bakery items and specialty coffees were delicious. Very busy place and the size of it doesn’t really accommodate its popularity. They do have another location called the other paw but it offers a reduced selection of baked goods. Recommend going early to avoid large lines!

Lovely little café in the heart of Jasper. There pastries were really good and bread was super fresh. They make their pastries and bread on site. The coffee was OK. I would recommend this little café if you’re in the area and want some thing...outside of Tim Hortons.More

I tried the apple squares (amazing!!!), raspberry white chocolate scone, pumpkin maple square, cheese stick... and they were all really good! I didn't get to try the coffee. The sandwich wasn't bad, basic but decent. This place is always so busy!

I was recommended to pick up some cinnamon buns from here to enjoy while touring the area and arrived at 9 am on August 28 2021. This is a small bakery and it was jam packed with tourists not wearing masks and shoulder to shoulder...waiting in a looped line to buy baking. I held my breath and bought my treats which were tasty indeed but not worth catching COVID over. I will wait until the pandemic is over or their protocol improves before I will return.More

Did not live up to the reviews or the long line up. We waited at least 20 minutes in line and then grabbed breakfast to go. Almond croissant, plain croissant and raspberry white chocolate scone. The croissants were not good. They did not taste like...they are made with butter, bland and dry. Thankfully the almond croissant was not day old with filling added, but still not very tasty. The flavours of the scone were good, but it was dry and over baked. We brought cinnamon buns home and those were good, not great.More

Highly recommend their sticky cinnamon buns. But everything is so tastey! Their lattes are also delicious. Many people get their sausage rolls also. Highly recommend!

They provided a fresh bakery. Highly recommend eating the pastries, scones and muffins on the same day. I tried the signature bear paw bun the next day, it was not as good as I ate with freshly baked. It's a bit hard.
