The food was better than average service average. Seating was poor was seated in a section that had dead flies on the window sill not an appetizing experience.

Pros: I tried the spicy lamb burger. It was quite tasty. My spouse and his mother ordered the fruity waffles. It was piled with fruit. They enjoyed their breakfast. My son ordered the apple & cinnamon pancakes. He said they were yummy. Cons: Waited at least 15 minutes for a table. Not sure why as there appeared to be empty... More

We stopped here for brunch on the drive from Banff to Calgary. Great selection of food and free flowing coffee. Eggs Benedict were delicious plus having fruit served with it was a welcome change. Really great family friendly service too!

We'd gone to Canmore specifically for hiking boots for our 9yr old son, and had been told to go to Glacier. The lady was very helpful not only with the boots but also recommended this restaurant for breakfast! It was AMAZING, great value, friendly staff and the food was amazing! Full of locals which is always a good sign!

Situated a few minutes from our hotel, we had heard many good things about this restaurant and we were very hungry for a great breakfast! As most of you will find out, this place is busy and lineups are common. The nice thing is we were seated within 10 minutes and had a coffee a few minutes after that. We... More

Went for a late breakfast on a Sunday and the offered us both breakfast and lunch menus. My wife and I both choose breakfast. My wife had poached eggs, sausage , bacon, toast and hash browns. It was a lot of food. She was not a fan of the hash browns. They are sliced like potato chips. I had the... More

Our server Jill, was quite cold and abrupt. we ordered the frittata which was pretty ordinary, almost cold and lacked seasoning and the pancakes with Apple were doughy and soggy and they also charged $1.50 for some maple syrup on the side. And to... More

The servers are wonderful and the food melts in your mouth. I had the crepe and eggs Benedict combo 2 mornings in a row. The apple and cheddar crepes blew my away as did the ham, Swiss, and asparagus Benedict! They were not open for dinner during our stay but their dinner menu looked amazing!

As usual welcomed with a smile as I walked through the door, even at 8:00am the place is alive and busy. Seated immediately by my favorite server Ann, with a fresh coffee. Breakfast arrived in short time and delicious as usual. Thank you for great friendly service Mr.C
