I was last in town pre covid in March 2020 and I felt the staff were disinterested but what a difference this time. New cafe space, new patio, same great coffee and muffins but the staff are so lovely and enthusiastic Due to covid restrictions...there is no indoor seating but the patio is stunning and the weather has been kind well done to the staff, a great welcoming coffee shopMore

I was overwhelmed with the brazen love for hospitality that the service staff/baristas at this coffeeshop delivered. I've spent alot of time in coffeeshops and the staff here really know their stuff. The barista training must be pretty good. Two thumbs up, 100%! I ordered...an oat flat white and was pleasantly surprised that the order came in the traditional 8oz cup. The banana bread was delicious also, hats off to the kitchen! Would come back in a heartbeat! Krystian xxMore

I came here on a busy Sunday morning but the service was quick and staff were all super friendly. I ordered a cappuccino and a blueberry peach(?) loaf and both were so so yummy. Would definitely come back!!

This is a non-negotiable stop every single time I am in or near Banff! The coffee, atmosphere, patio and staff never disappoint. They get it all right every time. We also love the Banff Aspen Lodge and it's the only place we will stay when...we are in Banff. Highly recommend everyone make a stop to Whitebark!More

Nice coffee and some good snacks. They had good social distancing practices. The outdoor patio was very pleasant on a warm day.
