This is pretty much what I want in a breakfast place. A well-cooked breakfast, served by nice staff, things move smoothly, and I'm out the door. The service was smooth and friendly, even when they switched servers for my table. It's cool, it happens. My waffles, bacon, and fruit were as I expected, the waffles even more so. I'm fed... More

We just tried to have breakfast at Chez François. The hostess had her bra showing, greeted us as "guys" and didn't try to cover her bruise. I found this to be inappropriate so we left. I suppose that's only my opinion, but I thought I'd share. Sunday, August 24, 2014 at 11am.

we were in Canmore for the weekend for a wedding and the rehearsal party dinner was held here so part of the restaurant was reserved for our party. The food certainly sounded good on the menu but did not meet our expectations. My husband and our 2 teenage boys enjoy many types of food and are adventurous in our food... More

Short and sweet, I was told this is the place to go for breakfast. It was just ok. The food was good but by no means oustanding in any way. Also, my coffee cup was dirty which was a turn off.

Came here for a family breakfast, 2 adults, 2 kids. Read reviews and decided we should try it. We all left happy with full bellies. I had the North America Combo which includes Scrambled eggs, pancakes, french toast, bacon & sausage. Everything in this combo was delicious and the portion size was just right. Fruit on each of our plates... More

We enjoyed a very nice family breakfast - 2 adults and 3 boys - 6, 8 and 11. I had the apple and cheddar crepes and they were very tasty. My wife had eggs benny with asparagus and they were good but not up to the high standard of OEB back in Calgary. Oldest son had apple and cinnamon pancakes... More

Was in Canmore today and decided to try Chez Francois for brunch. Had an omelet and it was very good, my friend had pancakes and they were very good too. Both came with very nice potatoes and some fruit. The atmosphere was very nice, but the service was very poor. Waited so long for our bill that we finally just... More
