Awesome place amazing food. Just go! I had the highly praised huevos rancheros and it was awesome. Only downside to the place is that it gets very busy and there is not a lot of space in there. But it is what you would expect from a place that serves food this good.

This cute little cafe is extremely popular in Canmore. It's located on a hill overlooking the bow valley. There is plentiful outdoor seating. The indoor seating is also adequate. The menus are written on chalkboards all over the counter. Lots of good breakfast choices, very healthy omelettes, etc.

We were up the Sulphur Mountain with the gondola. The Summit Cafe is beautifully perched high up enabling each visitor with a good view when seated along the window sides as well as the open deck picnic tables. I was quite disappointed with the quality of the burgers, small few bits of veggie packs that were priced without thought. $2.50... More

Great food with a Mexican flare to breakfast - hell yeah! Atmosphere is cozy and very sociable, lots of times in the early mornings you'll be seeing locals coming to get fueled up before they head out to do a big day hike, mountain climbing etc The only downside to this place is the wait time due to its popularity,...

We were the first people in. We had to wait for the grills to warm up. The employees were very friendly and offered coffee while we waited. Our breakfast were served. Standard stuff but the hash browns were amazing. I really liked the home town feel to the restaurant!

Hearty breakfast that doesn't feel like lead afterward, that's the mark of a good meal. I don't know if I was jaded after the horrible experience I had the previous day at the hotel. I'll certainly be coming back for breakfast in the future. Be warned though, this place gets busy, so arriving after 9 will mean a wait to... More

After reading other reviews (on this and other websites) we decided to give The Summit Cafe a try for breakfast one morning, while we were on a recent trip to Canmore, Alberta. The cafe is very small and extremely crowded...there is no room between the tables, so you will be constantly bumped into by people trying to squeeze into their... More

The staff is super friendly and the food is amazing! Definitely a great spot to hit before going skiing or going for a hike! Their homemade granola bars are to die for too! Like the title says, it's our favorite and will be going back.
