where is the best place to order a picnic lunch?

My husband and I will be in Banff July 19-20 and would like to take along a picnic lunch during our visit. Any suggestions?

Thanks, Cindy

First place to check is your hotel -- some will do this for you. If not, have breakfast at Melissa's or Coyotes or Touloolou (sp?) and get them to pack a lunch for you while you're eating breakfast.

if you do not get going before 8:00 am you could drop in to one of the 2 grocery stores Nesters and Safeway and pick up pre-made sandwiches or salads etc....at reasonable costs.

Hi clw721,

banff has a great suggestion to have the place pack a lunch for you while you have breakfast. Melissa's even has signage on their tables saying they will do this for you.

I would also recommend a few great spots in Banff

* JK Bakery located at the wolf and bear street mall

* Wildflour Bakery - Bison Courtyard on Bear Street

* Cake Company Cafe - Bear Street Mall

These three places are popular with locals and would have many things on their menu for the perfect picnic linch.

i'd just go to safeway and pick up stuff from there to make your own. pack it in the ice from the hotel...hopefully you have a cooler.

Sorry I misunderstood - I thought you were looking for a place to *order* a picnic lunch.

Sorry for the confusion. A place to "order" is my first option and my backup would be a grocery store.
