Welcome to the 1882 Sheep Creek Post Office

The Okotoks Post Office, originally the Sheep Creek Post Office, was built in 1882 and was located east of town near McMillan’s stopping place. It was moved in 1887 to its present location, on the original MacLeod Trail across from the train station. It continued to serve as a post office until 1942. After sitting vacant for a number of years. The building was renovated into a restaurant in the early 80's. Many of the original features have been preserved. Notably are the pressed nickel/copper composite siding designed to look like stone and the unusual angle of the building, it is not square to the street. You may also notice the spectacular details on the corners and the cornice moulding.

We have only 20 seats in an intimate European setting. With a one seating per table policy for our evening service, you never wait and are never rushed. This is how you are supposed to eat.
