This place is a mix of deli on one side and coffee shop/restaurant on the other. Both sides are great. In the coffee shop we had great coffee and strudel for a morning snack. Fast, friendly, efficient table service. Very clean washroom. On the deli side they have a nice assortment of gourmet victuals. Definitely would visit there again.

Australians like our good foods, we may not be renowned for producing them but we do like to import them and our craft producers are getting good at producing them. North America seems to like two different cheeses, both cheddar but different colours. If you're missing the finer cuisine of home, come here, get a GOOD coffee, browse the specialty... More

We love popping into Mountain Mercato every time we visit Canmore. All of the staff are always friendly and the food is excellent. They have a great selection of cheeses and Italian groceries, not to mention Phil and Sebastian coffee. A must visit in Canmore!

This place certainly looks the part - wonderful looking pantry produce and some decent looking cheeses in the counter, but the coffees were only just above average, and the prices all round are as high as the surrounding mountains.

This combination bistro/coffeeshop makes great coffee and panini. Not good for those searching for a quick gluten-free lunch. Lots of interesting ingredients for foodies- really like the selection of olive oils and vinegars. The market ncludes pasta, sauces, spices, compotes/jams, oils, vinegars, olives, charcuterie, and some crackers/cookies. My favourite ingredient is the Parmesan dip- great for baked zucchini sticks.

For those of you that drink soy latte you know that we rarely get art in the cup. They took the extra trouble here. They were also responsive to my gluten allergy and recommended a breakfast; it was delicious. Definitely the best coffee we have had in town. Great outdoor seating and awesome views.

They make a good focaccia and coffee. Lots of interesting food items to purchase. Their washroom is very clean.

Stopped by for a take out coffee - delicious! Little on the pricey side for a latte, but definitely one of the best we had while in the Rockies.

We stopped by for a rainy day lunch and did enjoy this thoroughly! My soup came in screaming hot and my latte was delicious. Panini and frittatas pleased all in our party. Limited seating but very good food. Try a dessert when you are there.

We stumbled on this little gem by chance while strolling the main street. The coffee was fantastic - the best we had in North America in 5 weeks (!) and the sandwiches really tasty. Great for lunch or breakfast, it became our 'regular' while we were in Canmore. Also sells quality groceries. The tables outside are neat and well presented,
