The cheesecake and coffee were very good from Whitebark. Lovely creamy cheesecake cheesecake on a firm base!
We enjoyed sitting outside and people watching, but considering it was winter and deep snow conditions, Whitebark probably should have had heaters/a fire.
I’ve given four stars as...the coffee shop is small/dispersed, so finding a seat isn’t easy, hence we sat outside. The staff member on the till was impatient when I asked if I should wait to take my order or if it would be brought out to us (you wait, by the way). It is worth noting that this was after the lunchtime rush, but the coffee shop was still full/starting to quite down.
Otherwise, I would highly recommend it!More
This cafe is small but niche, the food selection is well done and all made in house!! They have a good selection of vegan food and drinks..vegan sausage rolls and pastries & muffins to name a few!
They carry oat, soy and almond as replacements...which is very inclusive for many!!
The staff however make up a lot of the cafe, they are charming and charismatic and are always happy to help!
Definitely the best cafe in BanffMore
We’ve typically come here for our daily caffeine fix on our visits to Banff, but this year something seemed terribly wrong and we were heartbroken with the results. The latte was weak and flavourless and the flat white was downright sour. It was very disappointing...and has probably scarred us enough to reconsider going back.More

Sounds like you had a bad shot, please let us know next time and we'd be more than happy to remake your drinks for you!
I was in town for a week and picked up coffee most days
The coffee was wonderful and the service good and functional, but no sense that staff recognised me from one day to the next,
The staff made a great deal of fuss over...locals, in fact they seemed to get served first
The muffin are homemade and are very goodMore
