We ate breakfast here every day we stayed in Canmore. The food was very good every time, and the service was great! Friendly, cheerful and helpful. We will be back!

Any restaurant, no matter how great, can have an off night. But that has happened so rarely in the 20 years I have been enjoying my favourite Canmore restaurant. I lived a block away since it opened about 20 years ago and visited often. Sylvie and Francois, their children, their staff.... always the best. Yes, weekend brunches are insanely busy... More

Slow dinner, very slow. From the time we ordered it took our party of eight 3 hours to receive our food. Food was good but service was slow from the kitchen. We noticed only two other tables in the entire restaurant so they were not busy.

I always have breakfast at Chez Francois when visiting Canmore. I love the North American breakfast that includes scrambled eggs, pan fries, pancakes, french toast, bacon, sausage, and fruit. It is a little of everything. On this visit we ordered the platter for 4 and shared it with 3 adults and 3 kids and we still had some leftovers. It... More

There is not doubt that Chez Francois is the best breakfast spot in all of Canmore. We were not staying at the Econo Lodge where the restaurant is so we left our hotel and walked a few blocks to get there. The breakfast menu is large and varied and they have a really great children's menu with lots of choice... More

Great eggs benedict, french toast, and nice ambiance. We eat breakfast here everytime we are in Canmore. Highly recommended! I usually get the combo - eggs benedict and a raspberry yoghurt crepe. Yum!

Had a great brunch with omelette and pancakes. All waffles and pancakes can be made gluten-free. Sandwiches and omelettes served with gluten-free bread. The fruit was fresh and the bread was good. Nice place for breakfast, brunch or lunch.
