A small restaurant, with a relaxed atmosphere and a surprisingly selective wine/beer selection (including several Belgian-style options). The hostess seemed grumpy but from then on the service was good. The food was generic, coffee excellent.

We’ve eaten at Canyon Bistro a few times and have never been disappointed. The Burgers are fantastic. The salads and sandwiches are nicely prepared. The mac ‘n cheese is always a pleaser. And the service is always friendly and prompt. We will keep going back.
