We stopped by for a breakfast before a long day of travel to waterton lakes.great service with a smile. We forgot our Camera and they were so thoughtful that they made attempts to find us and kept it for pick up on our way back.

I can't say enough good things about this place. I visit canmore once a week and this place is by far the best sit down breaky you can get in canmore! It is very reasonable price for absolute top quality food. We went in with 15 people in our group and the service was just as good as the food!... More

This restaurant is attached to Econolodge along the service road to the main Trans Canadian Hwy though Canmore. We never expect too much of road trip stop-overs but this was a really nice place. It does have a french flair and great North American breakfasts. The Eggs Benny with swiss and asparagus was really done well, and the waffles another... More

Chez Francois at 1604 2nd Ave adjacent to 1A on the west end of Canmore is a casual restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. It is extremely popular for breakfast. Not fancy, good portions, and good service. A wide range of breakfast entrees are $10-13. My wife and I had breakfast at Chez Francois on 2 mornings and really enjoyed... More

We were staying in Canmore at the Rocky Mountain Ski Chalets, located just down the street from Chez Francois. Friends had dined at the Restaurant the night before and recommended it to us. The Chez Francois is attached to the Econolodge Motel and does a brisk business with hotel guests. This may be both a blessing and a curse. On... More

Stopped in Canmore with two grandchildren (ages 8 and 6) for breakfast and stumbled upon Chez Francois. This was a great find as it met every one of our criteria for a meal with the boys. Good selection, with Kid's menu, well prepared and presented. Good choice for adults again well prepared and presented. Nice choices of fruit, as well... More
