Family owned and operated by the Yuh family, the long-established Mountain Restaurant is a casual staple of the Lake Louise dining scene. The restaurant features international cuisine, including Korean, alongside Canadian favourites. Next door, Javalanche Café serves hot breakfasts, fresh baked treats, soups, salads, custom-made sandwiches, grilled paninis, ice cream, milkshakes, Banff Roasting Co. coffee and espresso bar offerings to-go.
Located a block off the Trans-Canada Highway, Mountain Restaurant offers rustic décor, carved pine tables and chairs, and large south-facing windows that showcase a sweeping mountain vista.
