Best Croissants Outside of France!

Biting into one of Le Fournil's buttery,flakey croissants takes me right back to Paris. There are a lot of other splendid looking pastries and I hear content sighs from the customers who are eating them, but so far I have only eyes (and stomach) for those delicious warm croissants!

Delicious real butter pastries, tea, coffee, breads and sandwiches. Everything is made fresh with real ingredients. Delicate taste, but oh, so worth it! You don't chow down here, you must savour every bite! I cannot say I disliked anything to eat or drink in this place, however, if you want quality you have to pay the price for it. For... More

You can't go wrong with any purchases here. Their almond crescents are the best. I also just had a chocolate cake from here and it was amazing! So soft, delicate and delicious. It's nice too because they have different options for each day of the week.

Hard working creative and talented staff deliver first class pastry that you would find in Milan to Paris. I applaud the owner for the endurance she endured during the hard times of the Canmore Flood which hit them hard. A little pricy but worth the authenticity of the food.

If you are travelling between Banff and Calgary / Edmonton, you owe it to yourself to stop in Canmore for the most delightful breakfast ( or other) experience of your trip. Just seconds off Hwy 1. Best Americano ever. Breakfast croissants and sandwiches made to order. Attention to detail was oh so French!

Great place to pick up a loaf of bread or two. Good coffee and treats but a bit pricey, or normal considering Canmore!

Le Fournil does a tremendous spread of delicious breads, pastries and treats - croissants, pain au chocolat, danishes, etc. - along with a small selection of breakfast and lunch offerings like quiche, croque monsieur, soups, and french toast on Sundays. Everything is made on site and is super fresh and delicious. Staff are really friendly. Good coffee from Fratello. All... More

We made the trip from banff to Canmore specifically for their macaroons. It was worth it! The cafe area is small and while we hoped to have lunch there wasn't a large selection, but the macaroons were delicious. It's difficult to find French macaroons in this area.

Stopped on our way up to Banff for a lunch. We had two baguette sandwiches ( 1 Ham, 1 Turkey). Neither sandwich was anything to write positive about, bread was good, essentially no meat/cheese. Also had a raspberry danish, it was good. For the price paid, I was expecting much more than a pre-made sandwich with 1 slice of deli... More
