The brunch that was half hot, half warm.

I had 3 sides to make my meal and it was very large, 1 ricotta lemon curd pancake (served cool not warm) 3 maple chicken... read more

Recommended by a local. Lunch on a Thursday. Only patrons there. Had the smoked trout which was not bad. Smoke was light and not over powering. He had the steak sandwich. Again not bad but not great. Served with fries. Meh. Portions on the small side but adequate for lunch. Loved the tea menu. Service was really good and ought... More

Utilized restaurant for party of 16 (dinner) on April 3rd over Easter. Were given a private room as had a large group celebrating anniversaries and birthdays. Servers helpful and personable. Appetizers which our group had (chowder or salad) were excellent. My wife had duck confit, done to perfection. I had chicken cordon bleu, not much ham or cheese in chicken,... More

Our experience was mixed - one meal was fantastic (pulled pork Mac and cheese) 2 very good and one average (ribs). We chose the upstairs venue and in retrospect likely would have enjoyed the more formal dining experience on the main floor

My husband and I spent three days in Canmore and this became our favourite location for food and cocktails. They do an excellent brunch and the wine bar food is special as is the quality wine selection. The staff were very welcoming and if we lived here this would be our regular place.

My husband and I went here 3 times during our week-long vacation in Canmore. We loved it! Nice cozy atmosphere with beautiful scenery, and always great service. We loved the lounge area for drinks and appetizers. We also had the weekend brunch and the food was outstanding! Every drink we tried here was delicious, and the food was all great!... More

First of all, coffee is one of the most important drinks to have with breakfast! Great cup of coffee! Next, I had the Steelhead Trout Eggs Benny, cooked to perfection! The atmosphere is nice and cozy with a log cabin charm! It's our new "go to" restaurant for breakfast!

We went as two couples with our three children aged between 5-8. The staff were very accommodating we had an early reservation, 6pm, which suited us fine. Two of the children had pasta and one had chicken strips and fries. The grown ups had house ribs (which were a special) lamb shank and wild mushroom risotto. All were exceptional. We... More

Seated immediately on a Friday afternoon. Fifty percent off appetizers priced the PEI mussels at $8 CAD for a healthy serving! My smoked trout sandwich was $16 CAD. Love smoked fish and this was good....
