Nourish Bistro is not your average vegetarian or vegan restaurant. They are “the place where the non vegan or vegetarian friends say its the best meal they’ve ever had,” says general Manager Alex Boston. Drawing from a wealth of different culinary influences Nourish’s menu provides an alternative dining experience that takes familiar pub food such as nachos, burgers and jalapeño poppers and transforms them into something satisfyingly wholesome. Their menu is very versatile and caters to any and all dietary needs or tastes. Nourish is also committed to sustainability by supporting and utilizing local, organic and seasonal ingredients. Their new menu features several brand new items as well as classic favourites.

Atmosphere and Accolades 

The atmosphere of Nourish Bistro is very much like the food it serves: fresh and exciting. Featuring plenty of greenery, birch wood accents and local art that adorns the walls. Nourish has a very earthy and modern looking interior. Nourish’s nachos have been consistently voted “The Best in Banff.” They are also proud to have the best use of fresh, local and organic ingredients as voted by locals. During the summer, the menu is 85 – 90% organic produce. They also feature live music on Sundays in the Summer and on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the fall. To add to their list of accomplishments they also boast the largest drink menu in Banff!
