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.

The best Hollandaise eggs ever! Add to it some raspberry crepes (my personal favorite) and you have one of the most amazing breakfast experiences on the planet!

We were up for a high-end French dinner. Our meal was a disappointment from start to finish. Not much on the menu is French, service was slow, atmosphere/music more appropriate for Applebee's. We were told that father owns and runs this place and son owns/runs O Bistro in downtown Canmore. We LOVED O Bistro so thought this would be excellent... More

We decided to check out Chez François as an alternative to Craig's Way Station. It wasn't very impressive: a) service was slow (waitress inattentive, hard to get refills on beverages). b) food was 'warm' but not hot: obviously it had been sitting before it was brought out. c) coffee was not hot. d) the eggs and bacon were cooked well...

Went last night with some close friends, on their suggestion. To my surprise, the restaurant was near empty at 7pm. Nonetheless, the young lady who took care of us was very pleasant. As for the food, we had a mix of the set three course dinner and à la carte. The only downer was that the Brie Chaud could have... More

We ate breakfast at this restaurant on the recommendation of guest service staff at our hotel. We were looking for a nice relaxing atmosphere to get a hearty breakfast before heading out on a day of adventure. We ordered the mountaineer breakfast, and the berry waffles. Both were delicious. The food was reasonably priced, and the portions were generous. We... More

The food was absolutely excellent. The eggs Benedict were done to perfection and the crepes were a taste of heaven in my mouth! The service was prompt and polite and the price worth every penny. I would absolutely come here again and tell others about it as a must-eat choice.
