I had the traditional breakfast with sausage. It was delicious especially the hash! So flavourful! I had a really nice coffee to wash it down. Fast friendly service too. My only critique would be I would happily pay a little more for better quality eggs...but still one of the best breakfasts in town.More

Summit is my fave breakfast spot in Canmore—I absolutely love the huevos rancheros or the breakfast burrito, which is saying something because I have lots of family stateside in Texas, and they’ve turned me into a bit of a Tex Amex snob! Their espresso drinks...and bakery goodies are super tasty too!More

Stopped in for breakfast before our drive home. We both had the traditional breakfast. Great hash browns. Yummy eggs and bacon too. I had a great latte and my wife really enjoyed her London fog. All to be had with great views of the mountains....Yummy. Yummy.More

Have eaten here multiple times, always good. Breakfast burrito is my go too! Only thing I would ask for is for the hash browns to be crisper. My husband had the breakfast croissant, said it was excellent.

We stopped in for breakfast on our way out of Canmore. Good selection of drip coffee available. My fiancé had a dark roast, very good, and I had a caramel latte that was $6, but worth it! He had the spicy mexi eggs which he...thought was delicious, and a good portion. I don’t handle spice well, but I could have eaten them, had just a nice kick. They gave him extra hot sauce for the side. I had the adult one egg, which was also very good. The egg was cooked as I asked and the bacon was very crispy. Both orders came with toast as well. It was a good breakfast overall! Not sure if they normally serve their food in the compostable containers, but it was a nice touch so you can take out if you wanted.More

Don’t be fooled by location and size, the food is amazing and plenty of choices. Ordering was easy at counter and seating was outside. Meal was delivered to table and was hot and tasty. Will come back.

We stopped by The Summit for breakfast. I had the breakfast sandwich and my boyfriend had an omelette. We both loved our food! The ingredients are super fresh. Everything was cooked perfectly. You can also enjoy some beautiful mountain views while you eat.

We stopped for breakfast and were a little worried because the place had no table available but by the time we ordered one had come available. We sat and our food came quickly and tasted amazing.

I came here with my friend while we had some time to kill. They had many delicious-looking options but I opted for the traditional two eggs/toast/hashbrowns. My friend got a breakfast burrito. Portions were decently large and we both enjoyed our meals, walking away full...and happy. There was lots of natural light in the café and I appreciated that there was no background music– only the sounds of conversation and eating!More
