Stopped here on the way to banff , it's a little hidden so if your a poutine fan you may need directions as it on the east side of Camore. We have been here twice and always surprised by the variety of poutine. It's fun just to read the menu!! Both times the poutine was great. We took a risk... More

Wonderful restaurant totally off the beaten tracks. About 10 mins from downtown Canmore this restaurant offers the best poutine (at least this side of Quebec). The food is fresh, good quality, and portion sizes are generous. This place will leave your mouth watering for more. Only draw back is that it doesn't have the nicest ambience and cleanest feel to...

This was, by far, one of the very best and the least expensive meals we had in the Banff- Canmore area. We split a smoked meat sandwich (oh my god! delicious!) and a medium supreme pontine. Couldn't finish the pontine, we were so stuffed- so my husband took 3 eggs, some red pepper, garlic and more onions the next morning... More

I asked on facebook a place to take my out of country friend to try her first Poutine. Although i'm in Calgary, La Belle Patate received the most votes. Thankfully, we were on our way home from Banff and stopped in. YUM YUM YUM! They are not skimpy on their toppings, we had the supreme which was onions, mushrooms, and... More

Like others have noted, this place is somewhat off the beaten track. That said, if you're in Canmore or just passing through, I recommend it. Order small because the portions are quite big and your heart and gut will thank you for it later. But definitely the best poutine I've had in western Canada.

Cafeteria style place in Canmore's industrial area across the highway from town. Does great poutine at great prices. The easy way to get there is as follows: Follow Hwy 1A (not the trans-Canada) south out of town towards Exshaw and turn left when you see the sign for 'Elk Run Industrial Estate' (or something like that) Take the first proper...

This one is our list of places we always visit while in town. Off the "main drag" but better than anything else in town if you are looking for good grub.

I visit La Belle Patate regularly because the service is great, and the good is delicious! This is one of Canmore's hidden gems. If you go, try the smoked meat sandwich, or the fully stocked meat poutine! Always great food, and genuine customer service!

Went here for dinner after a hike and we had some awesome Poutine (went for deluxe "Ian") and a burger. Delicious! Definitely a good spot to try before you leave the area.
