Excellent Breakfast

My wife and I had breakfast at Chez Francois in early June 2015. We had the eggs benedict and the waffles. The service was prompt and friendly and the food excellent. Will most certainly return.

On our last day in Canmore we decided to eat breakfast here, and it was a great choice. The food as well as the service was great! The menu is extensive with choices for anyone, which is important to me since I am a picky eater. If we return to Canmore, we will eat here again.

Chez Francois is my go to restaurant for breakfast with my husband or lunch with girlfriends. It is also a great date night place as it offers fine dining at a reasonable price. Friends visiting from Switzerland told us they would be paying hundreds of dollars at home for a meal up to this restaurants standards.It is the only restaurant... More

I had the seafood crepes there, it was the best crepes I ever had!! The service was a bit slow. Both waiters/waitresses speak French.

I cannot understand how this place is so highly rated. I ordered the savoury french toast and my boyfriend ordered a croissant and also the banana-chocolate crepes with bacon. My french toast was soggy (not crispy) due to the amount of cheap margarine (not butter) that it had been soaked in. The ham was cheap deli sliced ham (not off... More

I have been here a few times for breakfast and will keep coming back. The breakfast menu has lots of variety and has all the bases covered for what most people would like to have. The food had always been very good and the prices are reasonable.

I'm still haunted by our visit to this so-called restaurant for breakfast. The place was filthy - chairs stained and dirty, tables covered in debris and stains, walls grubby. The food was atrocious - meat found in a vegetarians breakfast, cremated scrambled eggs, flavourless slop etc. If you're used to eating out of greasy spoon trucker cafes, then I could... More

On a Sunday morning....It was a 15 minute wait, They took names and it went smoothly enough but everyone was standing in the entrance which seemed to interfere with people leaving. I thought that could be a better arrangement in that area would be good. Service seemed slow in coming but they were busy. Had eggs benedict with smoked salmon... More
