“Great food will be back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

Wandered in this store/cafe after noticing the sign saying best coffee in town while out shopping for a fancy oil and vinegar. The selection of oils and vinegars was amazing as well as a place to taste test some of the oils. We bought a couple other things as well (completely forgetting about the coffee) and noticed a cafe. Came back the next day for lunch and got a couple paninis and a in town made soda. Kinda sad we only found them on the day we were leaving

“Good Coffee, Good Service, Cosy Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

The locals know where to get the best coffee , service and food. Early in the morning they are one of the few places that are open for good, Italian style coffee - love it! Light meals.... Elderflower water is our favorite.

“It really is the best coffee in town.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

When you make a statement like that, you need to back it up and Mountain Mercato does just that. We have eaten breakfast here a couple of times now and the coffee and food is always consistently great.

With its 9:00 AM opening time and import foods store attached, it is likely as close as you can get to Europe in this small mountain town.

The fresh made panini sandwiches are as tasty as the coffee. Interesting blends of meats, cheeses and veggies and great vegetarian options. Food is served hot and the lattes and Cappucinos are good to the last drop. Service is friendly and efficient and staff are always willing to explain the menu. On my latest trip, I was also pleased to see they now offer smaller bags of the coffee beans they use to make their beverages. We will be back.

“Great for lunch1”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

We dropped in for lunch during our day in Canmore, there is a pleasant pavement patio if the weather is good, or you can sit inside at one side of the store. We had the soup (amazing home made sweet pepper soup) and the bruschetta. We liked it here, it's slightly quirky in a good way, and the food products on offer in the deli are fresh and mainly local. Staff are very friendly.

“DEVINE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

This cafe is amazing, I was there for a few days and got addicted to both their panini's and coffee. I never got around to trying the cakes but they looked like they would just melt in your mouth.
The staff were always friendly seeing as they always seemed to be humming with people the atmosphere is still relaxing and is nice to sit and watch people go by.
