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,

Went here with my parents for lunch. Overall everything was great they have gluten options which is a bonus for my mother. Only downfall was the server cashier who started laughing when saying they were out of gluten free bread. This was insulting as it diminished the issue and almost cost them business. However another person stepped in and assisted... More

Lovely place to sit outside and people watch while enjoying a latte and glass of wine. Only comment would be to get some wine glasses as drinking wine from a tumbler is a bit odd.

Another favourite spot in Canmore is Mountain Mercato. A mix of a european grocery store and a cafe. I always enjoy shopping there for delicious treats. It is a must stop if you enjoy coffee. I had an excellent latte and my husband loved his espresso. I love the atmosphere of Mountain Mercato. To me, it is just like a... More

Excellent coffee that lives up to its reputation. Its a busy little place and very tight. But lots of delicious treats to try and probably the best coffee in town.

I've been here twice now for lunch when I've spent the morning wandering around Canmore, and it's been a delicious option that gives you the pleasure of a tasty sit down meal, without feeling like you're waiting forever for a meal in a restaurant or tolerating cafe food because you can't find anything else. I've eaten lunch special sandwhiches both... More

My wife and I always make a point of stopping in at Mountain Mercato for lunch while in Canmore. Their coffee is unparalleled in town, and the lunch is perfect after a chilly morning of shopping on Main Street.
