Stopped in the little town of Field for lunch. This place was recommended and for good reason! Delicious sandwiches and salads. Cute little bohemian shopping. Definitely recommend!
Great little cafe on the west end of town, we just missed their winter breakfast menu (with eggs benny on the weekend!) but I ended up ordering their “daily egg” which was a tasty tomato, lettuce and egg sandwich with perfectly crispy multigrain bread. Good selection of other bagels, baked goods or lunch items. I also had a blueberry muffin which tasted like it was sugar free and with big fat blueberries…really good. Lots of other cool things for sale in this shop like jams, mini canvases, finger puppets, candles, hats and body care. Great place for breakfast or a quick coffee!
Fantastic food. Eclectic shop. They sell wine and beer just in case you forgot yours at home. Delicious sandwhiches. Salads were great. Quaint town. Great stop if you are travelling. Will try to go back, if out that way again.
The best sandwiches keep me coming back. I ride a Motorbike from Calgary to Field/Takakaw Falls 5 or 6 times per year and always include The Siding. Best food in all of the mountain parks. Just off highway in Field. Don’t just drive by.
Our family has always stopped at the Siding Cafe for a nibble. The food is a gastronomic art form with flavours balanced, textures excitedly mixed, and visually delightful on the plate. Someone obviously gave up a job in a fancy hotel in France for the alcove cafe in Field. Once I pulled away from the plate, I had the most incredible folk art all around me and various versions for sale (lucky me!). And, if I wanted to take a bottle of good wine for the evening, that too was available. The cook/cashiers are charming and interesting if they have time to share a story; it is the local cafe in a tiny village.
We ate all over British Columbia and Alberta. The burgers here were the best thing we ate. Not sure why. Might have been the sauce. Might have been the hispter hippy hikers. Whatever. Go. Have a Burger. They’re good.
I ordered the cheese burger and it was the most memorable hamburger I’ve had since 1985. The handcrafted burger was very flavourful and the salad it came with was wonderful. The service was polite and professional. The restaurant also has an eclectic gift shop (not your usual shop with t-shirts, fridge magnets and postcards). If travelling through Field, BC, make a point of stopping at The Siding Cafe.
We went in for breakfast on the 2nd day of our stay in Field and went back every day after that. Decent portions, well presented, fairly prompt service (it’s all cooked fresh so you may wait 10mins if they’re busy), free refills on the coffee, polite staff, and they do their own hot sauce which, if you are a fan of hot sauce, will blow your taste buds. They also do Frank’s just in case you prefer the milder stuff. Small shop inside as well, with a few concessions selling bits and bobs at reasonable prices.
On a long road trip from MB to BC and stopped here randomly for lunch. So glad we did. The cutest little spot in a teeny tiny town and probably the best sandwich I’ve ever eaten! Highly recommend this place. Plan to be hungry when you get close to Field, BC just so you can eat here! There is also artisan type clothing and gifts in here. Cutest little spot ever!
For years I have returned to this cafe in Field because it serves wholesome, healthy, made-on-the spot food from an eclectic and intriguing menu. I live in eastern Canada now, but any time I am “back out West” and travel this part of the Trans Canada Hwy (e.g. in early August 2016) I make a point of getting off the highway to eat at the Cafe. You can dine in, take your meal across the street to picnic tables with views of valley and mountain, or take your food back out on the Hwy with you. Staff are always friendly. the food is prepared while you watch, in a timely manner. Friends, family and back-country hiking companions we have taken to “The Siding” have thanked us profusely for helping them discover this jewel in the Rockies. I hope you enjoy it too!
