Love the Cuban Pork sandwich and tuna jacket potato! It's a great idea for a menu, every sandwich can be made into a poutine, hotdog or baked potato. Friendly staff. A locals favourite!

Do not miss this hidden gem if you visit Banff! Even though Squish is a small casual cafe, sandwiches are absolutely exquisite. For every single member of my family, the meat was rich and juicy, the bread was warm and buttery, and the sandwiches altogether ere soft and warm. Not to mention the prices are great for travelers on a... More

Over priced sandwiches. My gf sandwich was dry even though I asked for cream cheese, it was only put on a bit of the sandwich. Salmon was so salty that I wasn't able to finish it.

Lived in Banff for months before discovering this place. Such good sandwiches!! Huge and very filling. Also an awesome atmosphere where you can chill and play board games.

When I opted for the soup I wasn't expecting a huge portion of really meaty soup with accompanying biscuits and bread. My partner's sandwich was handmade and while it took a little while it was worth the wait.

The service was fantastic. Really friendly. And fast. Too bad they couldn't back it up with a good sandwich. We had the triple decker (club) and I don't know if there wasn't enough mayo on it or the bread was over toasted, but it was very dry. We wouldn't have minded so much if it didn't cost $15! It was...

When I saw that this restaurant offered Montréal smoked meat sandwiches, I was curious. Typically, outside of Montréal all you get are the frozen packets of pre-cut smoked meat (like what is available in the grocery store). When I approached the counter and saw the briskets of Lesters smoked meat, I knew this was going to be a great taste... More

Ok. I know the sandwiches are a bit pricey at about $15 each but they are awesome. I got the Reuben and the meat melts in your mouth. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere but I actually enjoy going to eat at the park across the street watching the mountain and taking some fresh air. Thumbs up!
