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.

Having stopped here multiple times, I can recommend the pizza (freshly baked), the salads (especially the Greek and Caesar), and the dessert pies. Among the better restaurant choices in Blue River, although it ain't cheap. I don't know why they put the (nice) patio facing...More

Food is pretty good, I would say better than average with higher than average prices but Blue River is pretty remote so it is to be expected. The pizza's are great and the pie is fantastic.
