Considering there are so many places in Banff to eat, i don't know why folks love this one so much. The food is pretty average, the vibe is fun but that's about it.
We checked out top rated breakfast joints in Banff one day and this was at the top of the list, gave it a try once and it was average. Tried again a week later and still - not as a good as A) other reviews, and B) a lot of the other places in town.

nothing to complain about, but i'm generally not impressed with the food in banff during my 5 day holiday here. everyone is super friendly, but the range of cuisine offered in the village can really use some help. this is a simple diner with a pretty extensive breakfast / brunch menu which is what we went for.

Louisiana style food. Huuuge menu and great food. Huge servings. Obviously a local hang out and always lined out the door. Great flavours, priced super reasonably and servers are very friendly.

Highly recommend

We ate here 3 times during our 2 week stay in Banff (we are a couple in our late 40s and love good food!).

We are here on 3 of the 4 days we didnt ski. Always packed out and always a queue - in my view this is always a good sign.

Yes - on a couple of occasions we had to wait around 20 minutes for a table - but it was definitely worth the wait.

Food was hot, fresh and plentiful - you couldn't ask for anything more. (All the food that came out looked amazing!).

We also had breakfast at Melissas - also fab - but Toulooloos gets my vote as they give you a big pot of tea rather than just a single cup.

The waitresses worked very hard to keep everyone happy. The only thing I would say is that if you have finished your breakfast/brunch and there are 10 people waiting please dont sit there on your phone for another 20 minutes.... thats just plain rude!

Defiantly worth a visit - or 2!

My husband and I were there for Sunday brunch. Food is amazing and the service was great. It’s a smaller restaurant so there was a 20 minute wait but well worth it. Pancakes were amazing :)))
