We waited some time to order and to receive the order on a busy Saturday morning, but it was absolutely worth the wait. This was one of the best restaurant breakfasts we've ever had. It's a cute restaurant and our server was very friendly and helpful. The bacon was great. The crepes on the side were also tasty. We really... More

My wife, her sister and her husband and I had dinner here on a Thursday evening. Hardly anyone else there but I guess it's busier at the weekend. Service slow. Set menu was reasonable value at 39 dollars. Food was OK but not exceptional. A few wines available by the glass.

We visited the Chez Francois several time for breakfast while visiting Canmore. There are so many choices and each of them tastes wonderful. Bennies, pancakes, crepes and so on. The servers are professional and quick to accomodate special needs or fix misunderstandings. We enjoyed it so much that we took guests here for breakfast too. We will be retuning to... More

We were staying up the road at Silver Creek, and decided to try here for breakfast, it was beyond amazing. We had the best raspberry yogurt pancakes ever!! Everyone in my family loved their breakfast, and the service was quick and friendly.

We arrived at 12:30 to be asked by the host if we were having lunch. Oddly perhaps, we were. On the way to the table the host advised they have all day breakfast. Noting the menu was labelled Lunch, we asked if we could order breakfast from that menu. With a huge sigh and rolling of the eyes he went... More
