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

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!
