This is one of the best European places in Alberta. It;s true Italian market and cofee shop together. Their cofee is small and tastes like italian espresso with wide selection of cookies around. The market is loaded with quality food from jams, salsas, oils, cakes, pastas, .... and amny more. The place is small and during summer time they have... More

Enjoyed yet another great lunch. Pannini's are excellent and the homemade soup of the day is beyond delicious. Best coffee in town for sure.

A friend and I visited Mountain Mercato for lunch and we were totally impressed. The coffee is by far the best in town and the food was absolutely delicious. Service was great, the staff were friendly and very helpful. I could not fault this place at all and can not wait to return to try some more of their tasty... More

I cannot say anything good about this place. We tried to order something but were totally ignored by staff. We were told to take a seat and somebody would come and take our order and we waited 20 minutes without service. The staff were walking around and nobody paid attention to us. HORRIBLE!! Never go there again...

Had a latte and a light salad; nice selections, good clean eating but found the store crowded. The staff was very friendly but found the other customers borderline rude. What's up with that? I guess it is where the snooty and elite congregate for their daily feedings. Did a little pre-Christmas stocking shopping (great place if you are shopping for... More

It also a lot of fun to look through the specialty food items on the store side. One of my favourite... More

The shop was wonderful and everyone was really cheerful. We tried the other highly recommended coffee shops in Canmore and were disappointed, but not here. Many of the other shops seemed generic, like a Tim Horton's or Starbucks by another name. We love finding places that are not a part of a chain and can't wait to go back to... More

The coffee was great. Hot, tasty and served up with a smile. The shop is an eclectic shop with imported oils, biscuits, drinks from around the world.(all pricey but good for window shopping) They also served some fresh soup and sandwich type items. But the coffee was great

I did not know that MM had an indoor area to sit and eat. I knew about the market and about the patio but that's all. Certainly that was my loss. This is a very good coffee/lunch/snack spot in the middle of Canmore. The wines that are available were good and at reasonable prices. The snacks all seemed good and... More
