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.

Tried this place after reading the TripAdvisor reviews. Called to make a reservation. Person mentioned there was a band in that night so it would be busy. Was able to make a rso. Upon arriving and after ordering drinks we were told 1 drink each was included in the $10 cover charge. No problem for me but would have been... More

Heard a review on the radio so decided to stop on our way through town for lunch. The weather was great so we ate outside to enjoy the scenery. We shared a pizza the super thin crust was amazing. But the lemon tart made the meal. Full thin slices of lemon, rind and all. Tart and sweet at the same... More

After the hustle and bustle of downtown, this little gem was just perfect to unwind after a busy weekend. Food wasn't rushed out and hastily prepared. Everything came at the perfect time and just right. The French Onion soup was superb! The soup of the day was so good! The market wrap was weird (pears in it lol) but excellent!... More

We love this place. When we eat out in Canmore, I always want to come here. The ambience is relaxed and friendly; the menu is simple and the food is fresh and delicious; the french chef knows how to prepare very tasty meals and the deserts are to die for; especially the lemon pie!

We have eaten here twice - once each for breakfast and dinner. The food is fresh, homemade and delicious. The bison meatball sandwich is my new favourite meal in Canmore! The portions are perfect - not overly huge and the owner is very friendly and takes great pride in his food. This is in a condo complex a bit out... More

Looking for a relaxed vibe, great views and reliable food with flair at great prices? This is the spot. Anthony takes real pride and personal attention in the product they put out and after having lunch and takeout many times I hosted a party of approximately 50 last summer and it tuned out great. We had the restaurant booked and... More

We love this place! It is off the main roads so no lineups no crowds, very little noise, no reservations, good food, good ambiance and good service. We dine approx. 20x a year and have never left disappointed. We have not had breakfast but have had the soups/sand, salads and pizza for lunch. Dinner is usually the special and it... More
