Can be super busy but once your order is taken, the food is quick. The service is really friendly and the food is great. The best lunchtime food we had in Canada. I’d highly recommend the Greek wrap!

We stopped at the Trailhead Cafe 3 times during our 8 days in the parks. We always found the food very tasty with fresh ingredients. Would not hesitate to recommend to others.
