"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"

Elegant venue at the Banff Centre featuring upscale, seasonal meat & seafood fare & scenic views.
"It can be incredibly annoying at times when a restaurant offers only one or two vegan options that you’re stuck with and probably wouldn’t usually choose. We’ve all been there, gazing at the menu trying to drum up excitement over the third mushroom burger you’ve eaten this week. Luckily, Parks Distillery and Earls Kitchen + Bar both offer kick-ass plant-based menus."

Airy restaurant & bar offering eclectic eats, including specialty burgers, plus scenic views.
"Banff’s newest brewery is known for bringing the great outdoors – indoors. Featuring a retractable roof for stargazing, a beer garden, and cozy patio spaces; you’ll find the atmosphere as appealing as the fare. Perfectly pair salads, sandwiches, and pizzas with craft beer and creative cocktails."
"This is the new patio on the block and you don’t want to miss it. Complete with personal fires and a ‘winter warmer’ cocktail menu, this is a great spot to have your après back in town. Located on Bear Street, dogs welcome!"
"Wild Flour Bakery is an independent bakery/cafe that offers organic, nourishing food. 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."
"Wild Flour Bakery churns out the most delicious breads, both sweet and savory, baked daily in their stone hearth oven (look for aged cheddar sourdough and a walnut & cranberry rye). If you’ve got time in the morning, the homemade granola and croissants are no-brainers."
"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."
"If you’re staying up at the Fairmont Banff Springs, STOCK Food & Drink, a bright and modern gourmet grocery and café, is a good option in the mornings, though they’re open throughout the day. Settle into one of their communal tables with a latte and one of their homemade pastries. And even though we thought long and hard hard about ordering an avocado toast in Alberta, it was just as good as the ones back in LA."
"Across the highway from downtown Canmore hides the Summit Cafe. A very popular spot among locals, the Summit Cafe is a quaint little spot in a small commercial plaza tucked into a quiet neighbourhood. One of Canmore’s best-kept secrets, they offer all-day breakfast until 1:30pm, at which point they close for the day, so be sure to take advantage and get there before then."
"We first visited the Summit Café when we were first looking to buy a place in Canmore. We asked our Realtor for a restaurant recommendation and he recommended a local’s favorite called the Summit Café. It’s been one of our favorite Canmore restaurants ever since."

Warm, relaxed coffee shop serving an array of caffeinated beverages, baked goods & sweets.
"This Banff Avenue location is a small version of the popular Wild Flour Artisan Bakery. They offer coffees, teas and baked treats. If you’re looking for a drink and a treat to go this option allows you to avoid the line ups at the main bakery."
