Favorite Local Eateries

We are going to be visiting Lake Louise, Jasper and Canmore beginning July 14th. We are looking for places to eat that are preferred by residents of these areas. We aren't looking for gourmet, just good food with, hopefully, good prices for the average person. Thank you for your help!

Again, Taxi Mike's website is absolutely spot on:

LAKE LOUISE

Bill Peyto's restaurant, next to the hotel in Lake Louise village, provides good value for money.

ShelliDawn recently mentioned the pub at the Post Hotel (not to be confused with the expensive restaurant at the Post Hotel).

Laggan's Bakery and Deli in the village of Lake Louise also provides reasonable lunches. Technically you can eat there, but there is little space to do so. Laggan's is frequented by people who buy take-away lunches for hiking.

ICEFIELDS PARKWAY

The food choices along the Icefields Parkway, the road that connects Lake Louise and Jasper, are few. Most of the choices that do exist are poor.

If you're driving northwards on the Icefields Parkway, it's wise to buy a take-away lunch from Laggan's before you leave. If you're driving southwards, Bears Paw Bakery in Jasper townsite is a good place from which to buy a take-away lunch.

JASPER

Read the write up about Jasper restaurants at TripAdvisor. It was written by a poster called krp329 who is a resident of Jasper.

As is the case almost everywhere in the world, lunch time prices are cheaper than dinner time prices. So, if you want to go to a restaurant that might represent a splurge for you, it will be a lot easier on your pocketbook if you lunch there rather than dine there.

The only challenge with that is that noon is a time when you might be out hiking. But then the lakeshore paths and hiking trails are some of the best "restaurants" in the world. They have views that few restaurants can match.

>>>>>>What does "marking" mean?<<<<<<<

If you click on your Fodor's User Name, you can find a list of all of the discussion threads in which you have participated.

I have noticed that jannieween has posted this word, "Marking" in many dicussion threads related to the Canadian Rockies over the last few months.

I'm guessing (but am not absolutely sure) that jannieween is using this as a way of bookmarking relevant threads, so to speak.

Actually, there is a somewhat more conventional way of bookmarking a thread.

To do it, go to the top of the thread and click on the thread title (in this case "Favorite Local Eateries").

This will have the effect of changing the URL in the navigation bar to the unique web address that identifies this thread, namely:

http://www.fodors.com/forums/threads...9&tid=35027094

The ID number at the end of that line, namely, 35027094, is the unique identifier.

Once you've done that, go to Favorites on your toolbar (if you're in Internet Explorer), and select Add to Favorites from the drop down menu.

The only risk with bookmarking your favourite sites in the conventional way as that all of your bookmarks can disappear into the Bermuda Triangle if you have a computer glitch. It has happened to me.
