“Great local coffee shop”
Reviewed 5 January 2014

It's always nice to find a locally owned and run coffee shop. Second Cup is such a place. The basic coffee is better than bigger global chains and they have a nice range f speciality coffees availabel if you fancy something different. Cakes and biscuits are good too (try the pecan tart).

“Great Staff, Good Coffee”
Reviewed 10 December 2013

It's become a part of the routine for my family when we are in Banff to stop at Second Cup - especially when it's Santa Clause parade day.

The staff are always fantastic, polite, quick. The drinks are the same as you get elsewhere, but served without the pretentious attitude. No fake hippy with a plaid shirt, skin tight jeans and awful moustache will hand you your coffee, and I appreciate that.

In a world of factory made everything and manufactured appearances, this place holds onto some authenticity with its great staff and simple drinks.

Kudos!

“GREAT coffee and sweet staff!”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

We got the mellow roast and it was delicious!!! I don't like strong coffee (they have that too), and usually add hot water to regular coffee, but that mellow roast was perfect just as it was.
We split a piece of carrot cake too (huge!) and it was yummy and moist.
Friendly staff and nice places to sit and relax.
Wish they had a place in Ohio!

“Great coffee and free wifi”
Reviewed 13 September 2013 via mobile

We went into this cafe twice during our recent trip to Banff. The coffee was good and at a reasonable price. The added bonus of having wifi is just perfect when your travelling. Seemed quite popular when we went and the staff were friendly.
