The breakfast selection is certainly good, very good eggs benedict, great and friendly service. Pity they don't have coffee to match the quality of food which is very good.

Chez Francois at 1602 2nd Ave on the Bow Valley Trail across from Patrinos. It’s an indoor restaurant, nothing fancy. It is not noisy. Chez Francois offers a very full breakfast menu including eggs benedict options along with traditional breakfast options. They have a lunch and dinner menu that looks interesting. Nice standard presentations, not fancy, good portions, good service... More

Ask a local is always a good maxim, and at dinner in another restaurant the previous evening, I asked our server where I would find the best breakfast in Canmore. Without hesitation, she said "You must go to Chez Francois, the pancakes are amazing," and she spoke the truth. The menu has plenty of choice and the pancakes are especially... More

Once we found this restaurant, we had to keep coming back. Great breakfasts for the value with an expansive menu. Eggs Benedict is their signature breakfast dish but I can highly recommend the French toast, waffles and other egg dishes!

We went here with friends for a get together. The food was fantastic! The atmosphere was very nice, we sat and visited until the restaurant closed. The service was good but not great, but the food made up for it. Everything was prepared to perfection, fresh and delicious. It was expensive, but we felt worth the money, so keep in... More

Looks a little sketchy because of the run-down decor (stained carpet and seats, ratty menus) but the food is divine. Definitely a place to seek out when you're staying in Canmore. The service was quick and pleasant. There's some neat artwork in the ladies bathroom (a floral ink mural - very neat!) but I'd feel like a weirdo taking my... More
