At Banff’s most bustling downtown corner is this upscale, award-winning steakhouse and showcase for Canadian cuisine, a favourite for meals from late breakfasts to intimate dinners. The Maple Leaf’s Canadian character is evident in its menu that features fresh Ocean Wise certified fish from BC, and Alberta beef and bison.
