Dining options in Banff, Lake Louise, Jasper

Would love to hear about any recommendations for both casual and fine dining experiences in the national parks area. I've downloaded some info, but this board is so informative, thought I'd like to hear what those "in the know" might have to suggest! Thanks in advance for your help.

Thanks so very much to all who have responded so far. This is a terrific way to get info when traveling in an unfamiliar area. We will actually be driving in from the US, so we can manage to get to any or all of the above recommended grocers! It is, after all, vacation (!!), so I don't plan to do a whole lot of cooking! But it is always nice to have some wonderful treats to "nosh" on or pack a picnic! Thanks again for your suggestions!

Grocery shopping in Calgary

We will be on vacation in the Banff National Park for over a week and since we will be staying in a condo, we'd like to pick up a few grocery staples and vacation "treats" (cheeses, salamis, etc) before leaving Calgary and heading to the park.

I've read the posts about Safeway, and that doesn't seem like a very good option (I don't shop them here in California either!) - but if someone in that area has other markets they do recommend, and even specialty markets - we'd appreciate your input. Thanks!
