Excellent coffee place. The coffee is flavourful and full of aroma. It is real espresso type coffee. The food (mostly wraps and sandwiches) is very good. Service is nice and the place has personality. We always stop there when we go to Lake Louise.

Friendly staff accomodate your every coffee need. The cafe opens at 7am so you can get a shot before you ski. Food is great too.
