Server barely check-in, we had to seek her out every time. Asked for seating with good views when making reso due to special occasion, when we arrived they wanted to seat us next to another table (when the restaurant was empty - weird choice during COVID), but also literally behind a wall with no views. Asked to be moved, and they seemed a bit upset at the request but obliged.

The Juniper has an amazing view inside and out. The menu is so good its difficult to choose what to eat. Even the coffee was delicious. You should try and stop in on any visit to the mountains.

We enjoyed an awesome brunch with a stunning view and had amazing service! Both our Bennies were delicious and eggs were poached to perfection. The tables were well spaced apart which left us feeling like we were safe from Covid. Thanks, we will return.

Although the view of mountains is great, the decor is really bad and dated. I wouldn’t go there for dinner , perhaps breakfast or brunch.

I loved the place and the the location is beautiful but I felt the menu need to be more richer, I went hoping I’ll get eggs benny with vegetables but end up with grilled avocados as a safe option because I don’t eat meats. We also tried the SHAKSHUKA it’s was so delicious!! I’ll sure go and try it again in the summer patio looked like a great place to have brunch!

Went for brunch and it was amazing! The drinks were also outstanding! We had the “mosquito bite” and it was one of the best drinks of our trip! Definitely coming back! Also the views are outstanding!

We visited The Juniper during a stay at the hotel for our 9th anniversary. The food selection and quality, the service, the value for money and the location were all exceptional. Any of their egg dishes were so very tasty. So much so that we went back for another round the next day. Compliments to the Chefs and Servers and Owners.
Do yourself a favour ... visit here for a great "almost-all-day" brunch!

Went for brunch at Juniper Bistro. Was seated next to a window with a great view of the mountains. We had the stuffed French toast and the salmon benny. Both were delicious. Service was great and friendly. Would definitely go back.

We found Juniper Bistro's staff to discriminate against us based on our skin colour (racial profiling). We weren't given the same attention as other customers in the restaurant and when we asked another server (not ours) to ask if we can move to another table that was empty, she said she would check if there were any reservations (this was at 1:50pm and the restaurant closed at 2:00pm). She never came back to inform us and totally ignored us. Our server only started to pay attention to us when she made a mistake in our order. I wouldn't go back there again.

Planned it as our last meal for our first trip to Banff and was not disappointed at all. Quantity of the meals was very filling. The shakshuka was awesome and so was the stuffed french toast. Service was excellent.
Will definitely be returning and will probably make this stop our new last stop tradition.

Decided to venture out of the city for breakfast and gave Juniper Bistro a try. We're glad we chose this place. The food was great, the price was reasonable and the service was attentive. GO.

Juniper Bistro is a hidden gem. We went for my mother's 60th birthday brunch before walking around Johnstone Lake and we were pleasantly surprised by the food. The interior of the restaurant could use a refresh but the view, and quality for value of the food, makes this a great find and perfect choice when visiting Banff and wanting to avoid the tourists.

The views are stunning. They are currently only open for breakfast/brunch. Lots of less common options such as grilled grapefruit and bennies on bannock. A good selection that should appeal to most people. Fancy coffees are available.

Varied breakfast options, lovely flavors. Server was attentive & very sweet, view added to the charm & ambience. Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed ours & each other’s different entrees - so pleased we made the Juniper Bistro part of our weekend in Banff.

We loved our brunch at Juniper Bistro. It was a chilly day so we didn't sit outside, but you could admire the views if you sit near the windows inside, which we did. I had the brie stuffed french toast which was perfect and filling for a day of hiking ahead. My boyfriend had the salmon benny and really enjoyed it as well.
