Excellent Breakfast!!

We went there for breakfast and all I can say is that is was very good! I had the eggs benedict and crepe combo meal they had and they were both good. The eggs were done perfectly and the crepes, chocolate and banana flavoured, were fantastic. It's a nice restaurant and the service was really... read more

The coffee didn't taste like coffee, and when we asked for a fresh cup, it didn't taste any better. The food was OK. Nothing to bring me back. One of the people at our table only wanted water, and waited forever to get a glass. We found the server to be really curt. She didn't seem to want to serve... More

We stopped in Canmore on our way to Banff on my birthday, after all, every birthday needs to start with a delicious breakfast! I chose Chez Francois because I heard that they had the best eggs benedict and I LOVE eggs benedict. We went on a Friday morning so it wasn't overly busy. The waitress was friendly and offered us...

We stopped in here for Sunday brunch. It was busy, but the hostess said many people were leaving soon and it would only be a few minutes. She asked us to wait outside with the others ahead of us (they do not have space for a wait line inside). From the time of arrival, to being seated, to placing the... More

Very nice service and decent food without being top level and certainly not qualifying for French restaurant label.

We live in Canmore , and patronize this restaurant for breakfast often . The only complaint I would have is the chairs need to be reupholstered , hardly even wanted to sit down they looked so grungy .

Have been here many times for the best breakfast or brunch in Canmore! Most recent meal was a 4 course Valentines Day dinner, as always the service, the food and the ambience were first rate. Always excellent value for your dollar.

The eggs Benedict and crepes are delicious, the Apple and cheese crepes are the best, strawberry and cream cheese comes a close second. The service is amazing and they are all very friendly - when in Canmore this restaurant is a must.

I like this place especially for the view. The prices were excellent and the service was wonderful. We had a coupon from the Econo Lodge which brought down our costs considerably.
