21 BEST Jasper Restaurants You’ll Absolutely Love!

Looking for the best Jasper restaurants to enjoy on a trip to the quaint mountain town? For an alpine town of only 5,000 residents, there are some wonderful restaurants in Jasper and Jasper food items.

The Best Jasper Restaurants to Try!

Sunhouse Cafe

Breakfast in Banff Sunhouse Cafe
  • Location: 610 Patricia St, Jasper (GPS)
  • Hours: 8:00 a.m. — 2:00 p.m.
  • Cuisine: Australian Coffee House
  • Price: $$
  • Website: Link

Sunhouse Cafe gets our nod for the best spot to grab brunch in Jasper. The airy cafe has modern decor and serves some mouth-watering coffee and food.

Coffee is a strong focus here, so even if you’re not looking to get a big meal, you should at least stop by for a latte. Drinks don’t stop there, though, as several organic teas, kombucha drinks, and smoothies are on offer too.

The Jasper food here is excellent and original, with fresh ingredients and healthy options. This is the kind of place you’ll find fancy avocado toast — and I mean that in a nice way.

It’s located on the second floor of a small mall, and the outdoor patio provides a pleasing view over Patricia Street.

Wicked Cup

Wicked Cup Food Breakfast in Banff
  • Location: 912 Connaught Dr, Jasper (GPS)
  • Hours: 7:00 — 2:30 a.m. (varies by season)
  • Cuisine: Canadian

Wicked Cup starts serving coffee early at 7:00 a.m. and is one of the best breakfast spots in Jasper. There is plenty of seating, and the interior is eclectic with a small gift shop inside. An outdoor patio with plenty of seating means you can enjoy mountain views while you have your morning coffee.

Breakfast is served all day with staples such as a lox bagel, breakfast burrito, pancakes, and yogurt parfaits. They also have a children’s breakfast menu, which is a big win for families.

After breakfast, they serve food all day and have a full bar for when you’re ready to have a stronger drink. Nothing is exceptional here, but they definitely serve some good coffee in Jasper.

Harvest Food & Drink

Harvest Food & Drink
  • Location: 616 Patricia St, Jasper (GPS)
  • Hours: 9:00 a.m. — 2:00 p.m.
  • Cuisine: Canadian
  • Price: $$
  • Website: Link

One of the better Jasper restaurants in town is Harvest Food & Drink. Harvest serves breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner — so it’s open all day. It’s one of the newer restaurants in Jasper with a healthy menu (although it’s definitely not all healthy!).

For breakfast, diners can choose from a classic egg breakfast, apple pie french toast, avocado toast, kale & potato hash, eggs benny, or Belgian waffles. We went with the french toast (photo above), and it was amazing. There are also several tasty smoothie options if that’s how you like to start your day.

Later in the day, they have a more varied menu with a selection of American staples. You can choose from a charcuterie board, burger, steak, smoked fish, salads, and even fondue! Food is really great here, and prices feel reasonable for the quality.

Coco’s Cafe is a beloved local spot that’s cozy and delicious for breakfast and lunch. They’ve got all of the classics of a relaxed cafe, such as bagels, oatmeal cinnamon waffles, breakfast burritos, breakfast bowls, and huevos rancheros.

A standout dish is the Breakfast Bagel, a tummy-filling Montreal style bagel with cream cheese, avocado, and veggies. You can choose from a nice range of coffee and tea drinks like a cappuccino or London fog (The Jasper Haze). It’s all pretty decent and can hit the spot if you’re hungry in the early morning as they’re one of the first breakfast spots to open in Jasper.

If you’re really wondering where to eat in Jasper and haven’t tried the brewery yet, you need to go tonight! Hands down, our favorite place to eat when in Jasper is the Jasper Brewing Company and visiting is one of the best things to do in Jasper.

Jasper Brewing Company was the first National Park Brewery in Canada. It opened in 2005, and after they are responsible for opening Banff Ave Brewing in Downtown Banff.

Three founders were born and raised Jasper locals and created the space as a great community hub. It’s one of the best breweries in the Canadian Rockies, and while their beers are delicious, I love their food! Everything here has been delicious. I highly recommend trying their Halloumi Bowl! Also, don’t be afraid to purchase one of their awesome shirts that are great to wear in Alberta.

One of the most well-reviewed Jasper restaurants is Syrahs of Jasper. To start Syrahs of Jasper has an extensive cocktail menu. Perfect for pre-dinner with cocktails with friends. Don’t be afraid to order their awesome Boar Bacon Caesar!

Every night their chef prepares a few amazing dishes that rotate. They offer fresh seafood as well – a rarity in the Canadian Rockies. Besides their nightly dishes, they have other delicious offerings like Alberta Boar Chop and Alberta Elk Striploin. Reservations are recommended in the summer.

The Spice Joint

The Spice Joint
  • Location: 614 Connaught Drive (GPS)
  • Hours: 11 AM-5PM
  • Cuisine: Jamaican
  • Price: $

The Spice Joint is a small Jasper Restaurant that dishes up Jamaican-inspired cuisine. It’s a great lunch spot and a great place to head if you want sandwiches and salads. Their jerk chicken sandwich is probably the best sandwich in the whole province!

It’s set in a laidback colorful restaurant with super friendly staff and owners. We’ve only been twice, but both times the service was excellent. Can not recommend this spot for a meal in Jasper enough!

Andaaz Jasper

  • Location: 612 Patricia St (GPS)

For the best Indian restaurant in Jasper, you cannot miss Andaaz Jasper.

If you’re in the mood for seafood head to Fish River for a warm atmosphere, great staff, and some delicious food. The menu has a lot of variety to choose from such as wild game and seafood options of arctic char, salmon, and even crab legs. They have an outdoor patio that’s wonderful to enjoy a meal on a nice summer evening.

Prices are a little on the high side, but it is a seafood restaurant in the mountains! It’s a favorite spot for locals and we highly recommend it.

De’d Dog Bar & Grill

Jasper in winter
  • Location: 404 Connaught Drive (GPS)
  • Hours: 3:00 PM – 9:30 PM

De’d Dog Bar, or “Dead Dog,” is an institution in the Town of Jasper. It’s a dive bar that locals always head to, but tourists will love it as well! There’s ample seating in here and a long bar to enjoy late into the night in the summer.

While it may only look like a dive bar, De’d Dog actually has some great bar food to enjoy. Their ribs and poutine are their most famous meals, and the portions are huge. Almost enough for two people to enjoy – so come hungry and enjoy with a cold beer!

Olive Bistro

  • Price: $$$

  • Location: 4 Pyramid Lake Rd (GPS)
  • Hours: 6:00 a.m. — 6:00 p.m.
  • Cuisine: Coffee and Pastries
  • Price: $
  • Website: Link

Bear’s Paw Bakery is an institution in Jasper and just about every visitor to Jasper should pay the bakery a visit. Everything is baked from scratch in house, and they have a wide variety of Canadian and European pastries.

The signature baked good is a bear paw or one of their massive scones. Baked goods are bountiful at the Bear’s Paw Bakery, such as cookies, muffins, apple pie, pumpkin tarts, sticky cinnamon buns, brownies, rhubarb squares, and fresh bread loaves.

They also serve some decent coffee with espresso-based drinks. There are two locations the original, Bear’s Paw Bakery, and the second location, the Other Bear Paw. Ice cream is also available for an afternoon treat, but we’ve never had the pleasure to try it.

It’s also nice to note that they open early at 6:00 a.m. for the early risers. This is great if you plan to have a big day out!

Patricia Street Deli

Patricia Street Deli
  • Location: 610 Patricia St (GPS)
  • Hours: 10AM–3PM
  • Cuisine: Sandwich Shop
  • Price: $
  • Website: Link

With the word “deli” in the name, it may not seem like it would be one of the best Jasper restaurants, but trust us. If you are looking for something quick and easy for lunch, check out this tiny little establishment.

Patricia Street Deli does roasted chicken sandwiches and wraps that are fresh and healthy. The sandwiches are made to order like Subway, but about 100x better.

We personally like to grab them to go to bring on a long Jasper hike. There’s nothing better than having one of these sandwiches for lunch while looking out from a mountain summit. Last time we brought our sandwiches out on the Berg Lake Trail and enjoyed our food under Mount Robson.

Famoso Neapolitan Pizza

best jasper restaurants
  • Location: 607 Patricia St (GPS)
  • Hours: 12PM 9 or 10PM
  • Cuisine: Pizza/Takeaway
  • Price: $
  • Website: Link

Looking for a late-night option in Jasper? Try Famosa Pizza, which is always busy on a nice summer day. Famosa is a Canadian chain pizza restaurant. Although we typically don’t recommend chain restaurants, we were seriously impressed with the pizza.

We love getting a pizza to go and enjoying it on one of the beautiful Jasper lakes (always remember to leave no trace). Famosa is one of the best takeout restaurants in Jasper.
