Best latte I've had in a long time in Canada. Milk wasn't overcooked, actually sweet from not steaming it to kingdom come (I'm talking about you Starbucks). Coffee was of high quality, freshly roasted. We also had a Ruben brisket sandwich, fantastic. Highly recommend.

Nachoes are overpriced chips. No cheese. We came here after skiing for a snack. We ordered nachoes which did have letters afterwards to indicate they were vegetarian and gluten free. Ok. I still expected cheese on them because NACHOES. They came with a white sauce...drizzled over the chips. Probably to hide the lack of cheese. They were topped with half an avocado and corn. This was the ‘salsa’ and ‘guacamole’ We did return them to ask for more cheese and to have the mystery white drizzle on the side. They came back with marginally more cheese and the mystery sauce on the side. My average rating was for effort. Nachoes need to have a few adult handfuls of cheese. (1-2 cups, 250-500ml) not a Pygmy dash of maybe 100mls on the chips. Every chip must have cheese. Because NACHOES.More

Hello Sharon, Thank you for sharing your in depth knowledge about nacho making. As a savvy Trip Advisor reviewer, we would suggest spelling nachos without the "e" and uncapitalized in future comments. Their is also very little mystery surrounding our sauce, the cilantro lime sour...More

Best coffee pretty much in the whole of Canada that we’ve found on our recent trips. A lot of gluten free options for those of us with coeliac disease and the staff were very accommodating and aware of cross contamination. Thanks again.

After purchasing 2 cold “hot” chocolates which came to more than 10 dollars, our group sat down outside the cafe on the picnic tables to have our drinks and eat some snacks. (We brought some snacks from home). Shortly after sitting down, the manger came...outside to tell us that we couldn’t sit OUTSIDE his cafe with food that we had brought from home. After we explained that we were paying customers, he still insisted that we leave his property. This was the rudest experience I have ever had with a manager and will not be coming back to this establishment. On the brightside, my brothers and I had one of the best ski days at kicking horse. We had a great time shredding it up, and hopefully will be back soonMore

Hi Max, Thank you for sharing your experience and we are deeply concerned about how excruciating this may have been. To be fair, it is common knowledge that outside food is not permitted on the premises of F & B establishments due to safety regulations....More

We ate here a couple of times over a 4 day weekend as a few of the other restaurants were closed. The food was really good. We had both breakfast and lunch. It’s a bit awkward to stand around inside to order first, as it...can get quite busy and chaotic, but it gets sorted out in the end.More

Great coffee..... controversy I know but better than Timmies. Service, welcome was top notch and the food was awesome. Fries were just not fries they were gourmet fries. If your in the area make the trip here and if your not then make the effort...and get here.More

We went here on our way out of town and got breakfast. My husband and I split our meal so we could each get muffins too. We should have each gotten our own plate because our food was so good and so were the muffins....Our chocolate chip/coconut muffins was still warm and the dense zucchini/chocolate chip muffin was amazing. Our children got the smoothie bowls and they were HUGE and so tasty. The staff was super friendly and we the view was so perfect of the kicking horse mountain ski hill and lift area. Super entertaining to watch the mountain bikers down the hill in the rain.More
