Our family of 16 wined & dined here on Canada Day for dinner. The patio dining was perfect, our service staff excellent, and the food was wonderful. Our family ordered a bit of everything but my dish, the Salmon Filet Salad was seasoned and filling. My teen son ate the Cassoulet, a 1st for him. However, the stand-out, & we... More

This quaint little restaurant tucked away in a neighborhood just outside Canmore on Three Sisters Parkway was a very special surprise. The food was excellent, as was the service, and the atmosphere was simply wonderful. I would recommend this bistro to anyone visiting the Canmore area. It stacks up to any of the restaurants in Banff. Highly recommended. Our compliments... More

This little bistro is tucked away from Canmore's main centre but is well worth a diversion - especially if the town is very busy. Handy too, as directly alongside you can buy nice wine! We went for an early lunch here and what quality ! We were served by Emily who was exemplary, knew a lot about coffee and the... More

My wife and I are real foodies. While on vacation in Canmore, we went here for lunch. It was so good we returned for dinner that evening. The next day was our anniversary, and there were two restaurants in Canmore I had checked out as possibilities. But when the time came, we decided to go for the sure thing and... More

Staff are great and very friendly! But their coffee is quite weak and their chai tea was really not very chai tea-y... maybe if I had it again if ask for an extra bag or shot of chai I'm not sure how they made it. Would come again as its a great atmosphere but would love them to get stronger... More

Thank you for your review. We followed up on your comment on Chai tea and changed brand (we used to brew our own, it ended up not being as sweet as pre-made ones that everyone is used to;) We use locally Brewed Mountain Blend Roasters coffee and love it.

Really enjoyed the flat bread pizza which I believe they get from Rocky Mountain Flatbread Co. Had the lemon pie. It was good but very tart. Not sure how I felt about lemon skin in the pie. They sell chocolatier there and bought some which was good.

Thank you f or your review! Yes, our pizza crust is made locally at Rocky Mountain Flatbread Co. You are right, our lemon pie is not your average lemon pie! No so sweet and on the tart side! One of our best seller. We use organic (meyer when in season) lemons to make it. Kind regards, Val&Anthony More

Decided to try this place for lunch and glad we did. French onion soup is the best. Beef brisket hit the spot! And the lemon pie, if I could I would take home a whole pie!!!

We have been here many times as it is within walking distance of our weekend home. The food is consistently good and Anthony is always so friendly. Service isn't fast so don't go if you're in a rush, but otherwise you won't be disappointed. Great patio in warm weather. Nights with live music are really fun.

The Market is my absolute favourite restaurant in Canmore. The owners are so lovely and kind. The menu is always fantastic, the food quality is perfect. The patio is lovely in the summer and the ambiance inside is so warm for those cold winter days. There is often live music which is lovely. The art is always being updated. They... More
