Cardston is a town in southwest Alberta, Canada. Cardston was settled in 1887 by members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons) from Utah Territory who travelled via the Macleod-Benton Trail to Alberta in one of the century's last wagon migrations. They had departed April 6 and arrived June 3. The official founder of the town is Charles Ora Card, after whom the town is named. The combined church and school was completed by January 29 the following year after their arrival.

As part of our Remmington Carriage Horse Ride, we were briefly introduced to the story of the Cobblestone Manor Home located near by and learned of its history, including the restaurant and B & B offerings. A quick peak into the establishments windows during the lunch / supper break, peaked our enthusiam for more.
This unique location is filled with an unusual history, that the staff are willing to share when asked.
The supper buffet offered a diverse selection of salads, several hot meats choices, including a tender and tasty roast beef offering with condiments. Among the other meat selections, a delicious chicken option was also available. Complimented with side choices of homemade buns, roast potatoes, veggies, the tasty preparation tantalized the taste buds, leaving us just enough room for the dessert selection that completed the meal.
This was a rare find, one we truly enjoyed and so fortunate to have experienced the establishment. Stop by to enjoy their offerings and hosptiality, well worth the visit.

This is simply one of the best drive-ins I've experienced in many years. The food is more than ample, absolutely delectable, served in what seems like seconds, and incredibly low priced. Whatever you order, make sure that you get the onion rings on the side as they are so crispy and crunchy that you will keep coming back for more. Ask for a salt packet as they are a bit underseasoned but a sprinkle or two will result in world-class onion ring perfection!
Make sure you stop here on the way to Waterton as the restaurants there engage in a gougefest unlike anywhere I've been lately. You will be paying through the nose for really substandard fare in the Village so drive those greedy gougers out of business by stopping and loading up on phenomenal fare at Dave's!

Sunday morning in Cardston doesn't give you many options for an early breakfast but this down home cafe fits the bill perfectly. Interesting setting in the old hotel downtown with memorbelia on the walls, good bottomless cup of coffee and a full breakfast for $8.50. Oh yes, easy parking too. Local folks have done it right and is a welcome addition to the amenities in town. We'll be back .....

We made a quick pit stop in this little town near an Indian Reservation for lunch. How ca you make a terrible grilled cheese. My 13 year old who has simple taste and who was really hungry did not finish her grilled cheese because it was "awful ". She said that the cheese tasted like plastic and the bread was probably Wonder brand. My husband got the poutine. It looked like a cheap jar of brown gravy was pored over badly cooked french fries. The salad rolls which mimic Vietnamese shrimp rolls were stuffed with cold wet noodles, wet spinach and everything slid out of the rice paper when you tried to hold it. There was no flavor. But you decide for yourself if you want to try it. The pickings are slim if you are stuck in this little town.

I live in northwestern Montana and complain all the time that there is no good Mexican restaurant around. So, on a business trip north of the border, I wasn't expecting anything better here. I was totally wrong! What a great little restaurant. Don't expect anything fancy, but the food was hot and delicious with good sized portions. Very authentic to what I have had in Mexico. This is literally the best Mexican food for at least a 200 mile radius. Hope Little Mexico is in business for years to come.

Good tasting pizza at $3 per slice. (see my submitted photo for other menu items and pricing) Pepperoni and Hawaiian were the two choices ready and available during our lunch visit. No complaints here. I would definitely eat at Cardston Pizza again.
