Sunshine Cafe – Banff, Alberta, Canada

We deliberately headed here because it is a vegetarian restaurant and I think we were both in the mood for some good veggie food that we could trust! And when we got there and checked out the menu, I think we were both a little excited at the prospect of eating there! However, when we went to order, the waiter told us that he couldn’t do a number of things on the menu – sadly a number of them were the things that I wanted to eat – a huge omelette and the swiss cheese rosti – however they could do the frittata Espanol – which contained both eggs and potato which were also the main ingredients in the omelette and rosti! Oh well… getting my third choice isn’t so bad… Martin went for the soup of the day – potato and corn chowder – and a cup of chilli. He also had a fresh apple juice – a far wiser choice than my option of a fresh lemonade, which was really just lemon flavoured water… The food was ok. The soup was quite bland, although Martin claimed that salt and pepper perked it up a bit. The chilli was ok, and there was nothing really wrong with my frittata – it just wasn’t as ‘wow’ as I expected it to be… Maybe they were having an off day, but there were a number of other people eating there that also looked less than impressed with their food…
