Wonderful!

Relaxing, unique and tasty! It is on the expensive side... but everything in Canmore is really. But I do recommend it for a lunch out, it is a wonderful atmosphere. It can get busy on the weekends though so I would steer clear then. But during the week for a coffee and panini, is a must.

Thanks to having Phil & Sebastian coffee on hand and a good machine to serve it, Mountain Mercato serves up the best Espresso and Latte/Cappuccino in Canmore. Their menu is also reliable and consistent for lunch and tapas style platters for light evening fare. When they are doing the 50% half price platters evening special, it's one of the best... More

This place was recommended by a business owner. My friend and I each had a Greek salad and split the artichoke panini. The salad was fresh and the panini was yummy. I would definitely eat there again.

This little bistro is good but not mind blowing. Food is average but the ingredients used are quite superb. I would classify this as more of a deli. You have to wait in line, where only 1 cashier is present, to order your meal. They run out of everything it seems quite quickly (no dessert at all that day as... More

We always come here after biking in Canmore. Quick serive, lovely outdoor seating (great for people watching), and the food and coffee cannot be beat! The trio of antipasti, italian panini and americanos are our faves!

We stopped in Canmore on our way to Calgary. Wasn't sure what to expect but we found this lovely little place with an outside seating area on the sidewalk. We had some coffees and a bite to eat. Coming from Australia we find it hard to get a coffee that we like in the US and Canada. Here came very... More

Nice deli and Italian style cafeteria on the site. Great choices for bites. Really yummy truffles. This place has definitely lots of charm.

...but they have great decaf at Mercato and it taste like real coffee. My decaffeinated latte was smooth and creamy. I really enjoyed crostini, glad to see, they use tomatoes actually taste like tomatoes. Champagne and pecan butter truffles are bit too sweet (maybe because of the white chocolate?) but it looks so good, I had to try!

Quaint little cafe with the best coffee. They also carry an assortment of imported food items. One of the negatives is - it's very crowded, but is definitely worth a look for the coffee.

The farmhouse panini is the best breakfast sandwich I have ever had in Canmore. Along with that, the coffees are fantastic! Thank you for the great ambiance and service!
