Devoted to the memory of Bruno Engler, Banff's famous mountain explorer, this cafe has great coffee, cold beer and an eclectic menu. Bruno serves up big sandwiches, samosas and wraps. Grab a snack, and relax on one of their colorful couches. You can also drop by for dinner - they are known for their bison burgers - but local consensus has it that it's better for brunch, lunch and the all-day breakfast.
