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.

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
