My wife and I went for lunch at Chez Francois. We were surprised at how good the food was. The service was awesome - very friendly and took good care of us. We will be back on our next canmore trip for sure.

We were told the chef was good at this establishment, so did not bolt when we saw the aged décor and stained chairs. I did hesitate to sit down in my dress as there was a horrible dark stain in the middle of the chair. Ugg. We order a bottle of French wind and decided on the 3 course meal... More

Went with a group on a Sunday morning in mid September following a wedding in Canmore the day before. They don't take reservations on Sunday so you could be in for a wait on one of the busier weekends. Overall, it was a great meal and the servers were great and all the conventional breakfast options on the menu (waffles,... More

We went to French quarters café for breakfast every morning except one. ( in Canmore 6 days) You can not beat it for breakfast. Highly recommended. Excellent variety of choices all of which were delicious. ranged from plain pancakes to eggs benedict. Service was always very pleasant and prompt. Pricing average for Canadian Rockies. Don't miss this place if you... More

We had breakfast for four and there was plenty of food on the platter. Enjoyed the eggs, french toast, pancakes and loved the potatoes! Coffee was good as was the service.

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.
