All the locals know that if you're looking for a big breakfast before you start your day, with a variety of crepes, omelettes, eggs benedicts, French Canadian cuisine and great service, Chez Francois is the place to get some nutrition before you head out to ski or climb. I've been here for business breakfast meetings, family and friends breakfast, and... More

We had a group breakfast at this restaurant last week (9 of us). Long and short basic breakfast, nothing more, nothing less .... The service was long but since we were a large group, I am not taking points away for it. Not something that will be memorable from this great trip.

We went to this restaurant for breakfast and it was great... all the standard breakfast fare and more. Can handle the health crazy fruit nuts or the big eaters... I had the big breakfast and was full for the day... Coffee is good and the service was prompt and efficient.

This is our favourite restaurant in Canmore and have been many times for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. We were excited to take our guests from Montreal here for breakfast last Monday, the 15 of September 2014 and had raved to them what a great restaurant and what a great experience they were going to have. We were so disappointed and... More

had the most amazing veggie omelette ever! Had a delicious side of fresh fruit with it that looked and tasted amazing, and the veggies in the omelette were so fresh and different. It had asparagus, zucchini, plus peppers, onions and mushrooms. It was a great dining experience and where we were staying at the econolodge which was attached to the... More

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 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.
