We have only been for breakfasts but they are amazing. The eggs Benedict are superior - I have tried different combo's but always return to these. My wife always gets an omelet which she also raves about. Mostly, the service is good and the food is worth the wait if the place is crowded - staff hard to find in... More

I was really torn on the rating to give. We enjoyed the place, but the manager or maybe a bartender? (a short man with grey spiked hair) working during Brunch on Sunday the 28th very clearly did not like his job and did not wish to be here. I had called the restaurant a few weeks back to make a...

We attended as part of a large party and unfortunately there were issues with the computer system and I'm not sure the restaurant had prepared in terms of staffing because we had 2 servers for a 45 person group and they couldn't seem to keep up. Where they lacked in service, they definitely made up for with the food. It... More

Yum! We had a great late brunch. We picked them because brunch runs until 2:30 and Im glad we did. We both loved what we got. I had the combo: I chose the smoked salmon Benedict & the raspberry crepe. Both were delicious but the Benedict was particularly good. The wife had the breakfast poutine which she really liked too.... More

Trips to the mountains almost always include Chez Francois as the first stop. I love their combo (crepe and benny). The coffee is good. The service is always great. Prices are reasonable.

My wife and I arrived at Chez Francois at 7AM sharp and were happy to find the doors open, since we were in a rush to have breakfast and catch a flight. The server was prompt, polite, and informative. She accommodated us by bringing the bill immediately after ordering so that we wouldn't have to wait once we were finished.... More

Really super breakfast in Canmore. Better than any we have on this holiday apart from in Vancouver at Scoozi's. The eggs were superb and the pancakes had a crispy edge which was quite unique. Great food. Just wish the juice was fresh.
