JK Cafe

Situated on Railway Avenue in Canmore Alberta, JK Cafe is the face of JK Bakery.  JK Cafe has long been a favourite of local tradesmen, fishermen, high school kids, seniors and those locals in the know who like a wholesome, nutritional breakfast or lunch that isn’t going to break the bank.

It is also the place to go when you need to order a special occasion cake or to treat yourself to a fancy pastry or dessert.

It is also a great  place to come for a morning or afternoon coffee and a cookie.

Open Mondays through Fridays from 7:30 AM to 5:00 PM and from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM on Saturdays. We order our coffee from a local brewer: Mountain Blends and it’s delicious! Come try four different blends or have an espresso with freshly ground beans.

Our main location is located between The Appliance Place and the Bow Valley Veteranarian Clinic, and close to Crazyweed Restaurant in Aspen Park.
Easy to find and easy to park with lots of free parking on both sides of our building.

JK Cafe….always smells good….always tastes great!

Our downtown location on 7th Avenue is open Mondays through Saturdays from 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM.

Our Banff location on Bear Street is open Mondays through Saturdays 8:30 AM – 5:00 PM.

Cafe Menu:

JK Lunches

JK Sandwiches: All good things start with a good foundation and at JKs it’s no different.  Our made to order sandwiches begin with your choice of a great  variety of the freshest bread.  Load that up with your favourite cold meats, vegetables, cheese and condiments or one of our signature fillings.  Full size and half sizes available.  You can also call in and order your sandwich to go.

Other: Come try our homemade lasagna and shepherd’s pie!

JK Soups  (one meat and one vegetarian soup made fresh each day)
