I'm a semi-regular. I love dropping by the Market Bistro for lunch, coffee and treats, or for a pleasurable evening out with supper and live entertainment. The food is reliably good and usually *great*, service is always friendly, and I really enjoy the casual, homey atmosphere, paintings on the walls, and the blend of patrons (from young & old to...

Okay, it's not Michelin 2 Star, but it's such a great little bistro it's worth venturing to the south end of Canmore to check it out instead of just the downtown restaurants. Tapas are always a solid bet, as are the soups, flatbread pizzas and specials. A pretty short wine list but there's a great wine store just next door.... More

This cozy bistro nestled at the foot of the three sisters mountains is a welcoming place to go. The coffee's locally roasted and the food is really fresh and delicious; whether you're meeting up for a healthy lunch after an adventure in the mountains, a candlelit dinner on the weekend, or if your even looking to organize a party.

I've come here a couple times for lunch and have enjoyed the food, but the servings are small for the price. The owner is originally from France and cooks great french food. I really liked the meatball sandwich and pulled pork. The specials are also usually good. Good service and nice staff. The wine store beside it is owned by... More

Attending nearby clinic, in desperate need of morning coffee on a regular Tuesday morning. Staff inside sizing, door open but was told they are closed. Couldn't even get a cup of coffee to go. Disappointed. Caffeine withdrawal.

We are truly sorry if you couldn't get your amount of caffeine needed last morning, but Tuesday is our ONLY day off and we were actually in a meeting when you walked in, we hope to see you again any days but Tuesdays. Sincerely, Anthony Chef/Owner More

The Market Bistro is our #1 favorite Canmore restaurant. Chef Anthony's weekend specials are truly delectable. The freshness and quality of the meals are tops.

Hubby and I decided to take a drive to Canmore on a lovely fall day for lunch and a mountain drive. A Canmore resident suggested the Market Bistro is we wanted to get away from the crowds of downtown. We were pleasantly surprised to find this little hidden gem. We sat on the patio sipping wine and beer soaking in... More

The staff were friendly, the place is nice and relaxed with a welcoming patio. We had two different soups (vegetable and the tomato), both were good as was the pulled pork sandwich. Portions are not huge, but lunch sized just right. The regular coffee was very weak, my husband then ordered a cappuccino and that had to be sent back... More

I came to this place because it was advertised to have the best cappucino. I had the worse cappucino ever instead, and it costs $4 for a small cup.

Hot and wet/mushy best describes almost all of the food items served here. This along with inattentive staff make it a must miss for this "Bistro". Would NOT recommend, much better options down in town. On top of it all many items are just overpriced for what you get.
