Not much between here and Kamloops so had a quick stop for food. Was good, bit overpriced. Staff was friendly and the food was quick. Not stellar but what do you expect in the middle of the mountains

As mentioned, this is a cafeteria where you place your order at the front, pay, and they bring your food to you. I went in for breakfast - and ordered the egger sandwich combo ($8, compared to the egger alone for $5). Got the combo...More

We travelled on a Sunday, planning to stop in Valemount, which was shut. We came across this stop, and were pleasantly surprised - we ate sandwiches & cookies plus coffee. All was good, with friendly staff

The staff was friendly and the food came fairly quick but the food was just average and some items like the well done fries were dissapointing. Although the salad was fresh.
