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

We loved this little bakery before it had to close for refurb due to flooding. Whenever we were on a road trip through Canmore we'd time it to stop here for the mouthwatering French baguette sandwich's. Fabulous fresh baked bread great fillings, perfect flaky pastries for dessert. Just the best. Having stopped in today for breakfast we found the newly... More

This is a wonderful bakery. Their coffee is superb, the two lunches I've had here were very good (and reasonable), and the baked goods, albeit pricey, are very special indeed: delicious! Truly European-style. I like the new streamlined decor and am SO glad they reopened after Canmore's devastating flood in 2013.

They make fresh bread daily. And many other French delicacies. What a treat- chocolate bread was irresistible ! I had the best cappuccino I have had in a very long time .

We were coming back from a weekend in Jasper and having heard of this place, we checked the website. It says permanently closed and so does Google. Well, I can say that they're still open, we're apologetic about the website and we had the ham croissant. Food was good, friendly people, and a nice bright atmosphere.

So glad this bakery has re-opened. We missed trying it on a previous trip through Canmore while it was closed, so were determined to try it this time around. We weren't disappointed. Raspberry danish was the best I have ever had, anywhere. Also was extremely happy with my coffee. The boys with me had ham and cheese pastries that were... More
