"Like many Banff restaurant workers, Trudy Allan and Kathy Johnson are a couple of gals from the Toronto area who came to the Rockies for some skiing and a little adventure. Unlike most of the others, however, they’ve stuck around and now run one of Banff’s best and most consistent restaurants: Coyotes Southwestern Grill."

"This tiny restaurant is one of Banff's most highly regarded casual eateries. Casual Coyote's focus is Southwestern cuisine, and the decor obliges with Arizona-style prints adorning the walls. The breakfast menu offers the expected egg and toast dishes including huevos rancheros, while sandwiches and corn-crusted pizzas are featured at lunchtime. The dinner menu serves a variety of meat, chicken and fish entrees, such as Rack of Lamb Zinfandel and Blue Corn Chicken, along with calzones, pizzas and pastas. Coyote's has an impressive wine list and a full bar."
"One of the few places in Banff where you can find lighter, healthier food, Coyote's is an attractive bistro like restaurant with excellent contemporary Southwestern cuisine. There's a broad selection of vegetarian dishes, as well as fresh fish, grilled meats, and multiethnic dishes prepared with an eye to spices and full flavors. There's also a deli, where you can get the makings for a picnic and head to the park. This is a very popular place, so go early or make reservations if you don't want to stand in line."
"A favorite spot for vegetarians, and with good reason: Coyotes is one of the few places in town where you'll find more than the standard one or two options, but rather a broad array, like a spicy black bean burrito or a southwestern polenta with ratatouille. But there's something for everybody here, including a healthy baked salmon and grilled meats. The in-house deli will also prepare picnic lunches for you to take on your outdoor excursions. Coyotes is popular, so make a reservation."
