"Best known by locals for its stunning views of the Canadian Rockies (nab a seat by the giant windows to make other diners jealous!), the Bison’s best-kept secret is its addictive dinner and Sunday brunch menus. Chefs Liz and Kirk are..."
"This is one of the fancier restaurants in town and it does not disappoint. It’s been years since we’ve made it back here but I still remember the maple-glazed salmon and the super creamy mashed potatoes. If you’re looking for an upscale restaurant in the heart of Banff, this is one of the top options."
"The Maple Leaf is one of Banff’s high end restaurants, and is incredibly popular due to it serving fully Canadian cuisine. Primarily working with steak and seafood, the food is beautiful, as is the restaurant itself. Canadian oysters, Alberta beef and wild salmon, every dish just screams eh!"
"With plenty of local and foreign plaudits, the classy Maple Leaf eschews all other pretensions in favor of one defining word: 'Canadian.' The menu is anchored by Albertan beef, along with BC salmon, East Coast... Ice Cream in Banff Town"

Stop by for breakfast or lunch and be prepared to have a hard time deciding between the pastries, hearty sandwiches, soups and salads. They’re well known for their sourdough bread so it’s worth grabbing a loaf to take home."

"We are in Banff at least 3 times and year and we always make a stop into the bakery. They have awesome bread but also serve a brisk lunch/snack business. My favorite treat is their vegetarian Foccacia."
"JK Bakery is another small, locally owned coffee shop that sells a good assortment of baked goods, cakes and pies to take on the go. Coming from England, I was pretty over the moon to find sausage rolls and pies for sale here, which are the perfect road trip snack. They also have pretty tasty cinnamon rolls occasionally, sandwiches and soups."
"K Bakery Cafe is a cute little coffee shop that serves the delicious black tea that I LOVE – creamy earl gray tea. They also offer specialty coffees, teas, and light snacks and baked goods. Located at 229 Bear St by the movie hall in Banff."
