This business closed in the fall of 2013. It was one of our favorite places for breakfast in Banff. There was a lady who worked there for over 15 years and she would remember us from our previous visits. Now we go to Melissa's Misteak

You can't go wrong with any breakfast item on the menu. My favourite is always the eggs bennie and the coffee is excellent.

Courteous and prompt service, friendly waitresses, great coffee and lots of it plus always a great breakfast at a reasonable price. Another thing that I always liked about this place is that every place to sit is in a booth - never at a lone table with people walking around you. Love being in a booth!! A visit to Banff... More

This place is the typical family restaurant where the service is mediocre at best, waitresses reading the morning paper instead of attending to patrons. The hollandaise sauce is revolting, more like a bland tasteless beef gravy. When I complained I was told the server liked it so it had to be good. Another server commented " this is the way... More

We stayed in Banff for 3 days and for 2 of those days we had breakfast at Phil's. There was so many things to choose from we didn't know where to start and were very excited by the different options.

Breakfast for everyone, unless you want lots of very healthy things, good choice, very cheap for Banff - not bad generally. Quick service and food, so good for toddlers and picky relatives. Lots of parking and some good view if you get the right seats. Just across the river, round the corner and up the hill from the downtown area.

Service was good, but the breakfast was poor at best. Food looked slapped together and the potato pancakes had a strange after-taste. We were disappointed, as breakfast is Phil's specialty.

Got there around 9 on a Saturday morning and it surprisingly was not busy. Service was quick and friendly and our food was delicious and plentiful! I hadn't been there in about 20 years and I was glad we went. We would definitely go back!

Had breakfast here one morning, service was good and it was quick. Didn't have a lot of healthier options, but if your looking for a quick breakfast at a reasonable price, this is it.

This is a good place for a reasonable price food. If you want to pay BIG dollars for average food go up the hill to the Banff Springs Hotel, you might be full but your wallet will be empty.
