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!

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 Juniper experience! We enjoyed brunch outside with and incredible view. The salmon and juniper eggs Benedicts were amazing. My husband and I agreed it was one of the best we’d had in a long time.

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.

I did expect a more refined experience given the high rating on trip advisor. Food was excellent though I found the breakfast portion a bit small. Service was most lacking - Stood waiting at the waiting sign by the stairs and host did acknowledge or welcome me even though she was standing right there. Waitress seemed like she didn't want to be there and came off quite unfriendly. I asked for a chai latte and she didn't know what that was nor did the restaurant have have tea based latte's or soy milk. For a restaurant of this caliber and given dining trends, I was quite surprised at this. Overall it was an OK experience, the views from the patio definitely made up for the lack of service.

By far the best Breakfast in the Bow Valley. I hesitated to review it because part of its quality is the lack of people but I want to support this restaurant so hence the review. Great for brunch. Haven’t tried lunch or dinner yet but will for sure. Service is above and beyond, friendly, thoughtful but not intrusive. The food is awesome, my husband loves the “bunny Bennie” and their Salmon Bennie is my fav. You can’t go wrong with anything from the menu. Just great all a around.
