Great little place

My husband was searching online for somewhere to eat for supper. He found this place. It's a short drive outside the busyness of Canmore which was a nice change. We sat on the patio which was great until the wasps started to pester me. Our servers brought out some natural concoction to put on our... read more

This is one of my favourite gems in Canmore. They have a great atmosphere, personable staff and the very best lemon tart! The marinated olives done in house are a treat I love; with the cheese platter and a little vino tinto. Perfection.

I've been here several times,and it's always been great service! The patio is really lovely to sit on and the food is decent. Last time I was there we went for dinner, and it was mediocre. But the lunch menu was great loved the sandwich and would totally recommend the market for lunch but not dinner.

You can't go wrong at the Market Bistro. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are always good. The coffee is awesome and there's a wine store next door that does tastings and had a great selection. Try to always get the special. If not the regular menu is can't miss.

Good family owned business that doesn't get the attention it deserves, very friendly but not the quickest meal. Selection was not the best but everything on the menu is good.

Our family had a nice meal at the Market Bistro. The pizza and pasta were very good. The wine list is very long and diverse. We had great service and had a nice table outside. Would highly recommend it. It seemed there were mostly locals there which is a good sign to me.

Happy to hear you enjoyed the pasta and pizza and experienced "Canmore" of the locals:) Our wine list includes all the wines available at our liquor store, next door. Therefore, extensive wine list! Our mark up is only $15 more then the price at the liquor store. It makes our wine list the most affordable in Canmore! Looking forward to... More

Fantastic food, calm area. I think this is relatively a new restaurant in Canmore. We had our Sunday breakfast there and it was just amazing. Combination of the food, service, patio sitting, the whole thing. Tried their oven baked bagel with egg, pesto and prosciutto and it was very delicious. I would definitely like to try their lunch or dinner... More

We had a great experience at The Market Bistro. We started off with a very reasonably priced bottle of Valpolicella Ripasso and then had a daily special of Thai marinated pork tacos. The atmosphere was that of a comfortable neighborhood bistro. It was a perfect evening.

We discovered the Market Bistro on a walk through Stewart Creek a few months ago and now make it a regular stop for lunch when we are in Canmore. The food is great, good service and a perfect spot to sit for a couple hours. We tie our dogs up outside with a bowl of water and they have a... More
