Steamies and Poutine! such a nice treat when we get to dine here while in Canmore. The slaw for the steamies are the simple perfection that makes the hotdog its unique taste and and they nailed it! The poutine has real squeaky squeaky cheese curd and a wonderful sauce. Double cooked fries hold u to the heat of the sauce... More

I know proper poutine and I was a little weary but I have to admit, this place has nailed it. The owner is awesome and really takes pride in the authenticity of his gravy and all that is québécois. I'll be back.

We ordered a small traditional poutine and a smoked meat sandwich to share. Both were fresh, flavorful and delicious! Plus all served with a smile. We'll be back!

Highly overrated! Glad I tried it, now I know what to avoid in the future. Poutine was warm at best, cheese curds not wanting to melt. I've had better in my bud Francios' backyard.

Owner so personable, friendly, fast, place is spotless, food is snack, and lunch oriented, greatest Poutine in the west! Reasonable prices and combination options, out of the way and off the beaten track but the locals all know a GOOD thing. Montreal smoked meat sandwich a pleasant surprise and addition.

My husband and I were in Canmore for our honeymoon, and hoped to find poutine even though it's more of an Eastern Canada specialty! La Belle Patate did not disappoint!! Heard one of the employees mention that the cheese curds are now even sourced from Quebec, to keep it as authentic as possible! The small Traditional was more than enough... More

Well we are huge Montreal Smoked Meat fans and have tried most if not all around Calgary and lately they're all gross. So after reading somewhere about this place we've been trying to make it out there for a month or so... First off the staff are fantastic!!! Very friendly and helpful about questions you may have on your first... More

We had the Original Poutine, which is fries with cheese curds & brown gravy...this dish is a must try for any tourist visiting Canada. Poutines are their "thing" kinda like what cheesesteaks are to Philly. So we checked that box on Day 1 of our visit. The Montreal smoked meat sandwich is what Americans call a Pastrami sandwich. We also... More

Fabulous hamburger and all kinds of poutine. The place is not somewhere that people normally walk around, yet it was crowded because of their delicious meal. Do not miss it!

Great selection of Poutines made with fresh cheese curds, hand cut double cooked fries and a delicious vegetable based gravy. Old fashioned Montreal smoked meat sandwich served on rye with a side of kosher pickle :) Moist, Steamed dogs, dressed to perfection :) Delicious, fresh, no filler added burgers... Authentic Colt Spruce Beer Come and get a taste of home!
