Come for the snacks stay for the history...

Adjoining the Simpson's Trading Post Gift Shop is the quaint Bow Lake Cafe, the perfect mid-way destination for a short stop over while navigating the Icefields Parkway, North to Jasper or South to Lake Louise and onward to Banff. 

 Here you are able to stretch your legs, relax and enjoy a cup of coffee with something sweet by the fireplace, try our Chef’s homemade sandwiches and Soup du Jour, take a ramble through the gift store for some authentic Canadian goods, or walk along the shores of Bow Lake to admire the sheer beauty of some of the finest mountains in the Rockies, before heading onward to continue your journey.
