If you read my last post, I was in Banff for three days last week for new years. Every time I have been to Banff I have trouble finding gluten free breakfast with the exception of some hotels like the Banff Springs and the Rimrock. Reality is, I rarely stay at these hotels and truth be told, they aren’t super easy to get to. So often I end up having an omelette at Melissa’s or The Bison cuz neither has GF bread. Unfortunately, I kinda hate omelettes, but often is my only choice.
The last morning we were in Banff, we thought we would grab breaky and walk around downtown. Being a weekday, a lot of resto’s didn’t serve breakfast, and the Wild Flour doesn’t have great GF breaky options. So on a whim we went into Coyote’s. Coyote’s is a long skinny, rustic grill which is casua,l but busy. Unfortunately we showed up at the wrong time because the breakfast line was just shutting down and the lunch line wouldn’t be ready for 30 minutes. Our options were sammy’s, but they said they had GF bread and wraps which made my day. On the lunch menu was a breakfast burrito, and all I wanted was eggs so I snuck that order in just under the wire.
Although our order took 45 minutes to arrive, at least I was able to have a soy latte while we waited. The burrito finally arrived and it was really good. Well as good as a gluten free wrap can be when it tastes like hard paper. That said, I was still grateful for a breaky burrito.
Even though the service wasn’t amazing, Coyote’s will be my new breaky place in Banff because of the abundant GF options.
