While staying for a week at the Chateau Lake Louise, we were so disappointed in the quality of the Chateau's food on the first day that we ate at Bill Peyto's every day we were in the area. That meant Breakfast every day, and late lunch / early supper when we were skiing at the Lake Louise Ski Area.

Great for breakfast, lunch and dinner! The atmosphere is cozy and casual. The staff is friendly and attentive! The draft beer is the cheapest in town and you can’t beat a wood burning fireplace after a day exploring the great outdoors! We stayed across the street at the Inn and ate most of our meals at this hostel! Next time... More

Met with friends for supper at the newly renovated Cafe! We had a lovely dinner together! The service was excellent, the food was awesome, and the prices were very reasonable for the area! Highly recommend it!

Freshly made and piping hot eggs, home fries, bacon, toast and coffee for $9.75, with great service and a smile. Brilliant start to the day and so much better than the buffet breakfast at Lake Louise Inn over the road at $15.

The staff is friendly enough, even considering the bartender's smirky disposition, but the food was just ok and the service was ridiculously slow. It took over an hour after ordering to get our food.

I have to admit I really want to like Bill Peyto's Cafe. I just love the warm, inviting and comfortable atmosphere. It has the cheapest draft in town and the service is excellent. I have eaten here several times and the meals have been barely average at best. I was really shocked to find out at breakfast one morning that... More

We stayed at the Lake Louise Inn across the street but I had heard good things about the cafe. The staff are friendly, the location is perfect, the food is great and reasonably priced. We ate all our breakfasts and dinners here. We would definitely return!

This cafe is a nice option, as it offers some alternative to pasta, pizza and burgers served in nearby cafes. It is not easy to find, as it is hidden and there is no sign on Village road to this cafe. We ordered chicken souvlaki and it was good, but the meal itself reminded "Opa" too close. We cam around...

We read good reviews of Bill Peyto's on Trip Advisor and so were happy to give it a try. We were seriously disappointed with the service. One in our party is a celiac and when asked about menu options the waitress was unable to provide answers as to the ingredients in the dishes. We then tried to order a green... More

We had just done the long drive in from Jasper. There were no services on that highway, being closed for the winter, so we were in need of good grub. We remembered that the Youth Hostel has a little cafe, and headed there. Both of us enjoyed the food, and our table had a nice view into the grounds of... More
