Reviewed August 18, 2020

With COVID-19, this restaurant is just a take-out window now, but with some nice picnic tables across the street it's still a nice stop. Prices were high for pretty basic fare - seemed more popular with the folks who were ordering from the liquor store...attached. The only other option in Field is Truffle Pigs, which is quite expensive and high end.More

Great food! The chicken burger was delicious. It’s kinda a little hole in the wall but we didn’t want to wait at the restaurant across the street. It was a great choice.

A great place to grab a quick lunch. The food was all delicious and the store was a charming little place. There appeared to be a mix of tourist and locals when we were there.

We stopped here for lunch on the way back to Banff. It’s a small, friendly cafe with good food, what more do you need! A great option, especially if you are visiting Emerald Lake but don’t want to eat at the hotel cafe.

We went to the Cafe for lunch while we were staying in Field. It has a great atmosphere- obviously a favourite with locals - and provides a warm welcome. The food was tasty and a little different from standard fare, which was nice. Lots of...things to look at while you're waiting for your food to arrive. It provided a very pleasant interlude in a very memorable day.More

Could be easy to overlook this spot (a bit of a tired exterior) but the food is amazing! My spouse and I loved the dishes and hot drinks we got! Portions and price were reasonable and better than other options nearby. Employees were friendly and...hustling to prep food quickly, check on us and clear used dishes. Also enjoyed the eclectic art and gift items inside. Wish we had another day in field to eat here again!More

Pulled in for lunch earlier this summer with 9 people we had a bad vibe before we even talked to the person at the door we ended up walking out never to return!

They no longer serve french fries as pictured in one of the reviews and the menu is very limited. I had the Moroccan chicken panini and it was excellent but would have been better with fries. Reasonably priced which is unusual for anything inside a...national park.More

Absolutely fabulous soup and crusty bun. Great snack after a visit to Emerald Lake. Definitely a repeat will be in order
