We skipped lunch in Banff and made our way back to Canmore where we were staying because we wanted to try a French restaurant for lunch. She was disappointed by the breakfast offerings, but he loved the Poutine and we returned for a second visit during our trip.

A great place for breakfast in Canmore. Very busy on a Sunday morning. All the staff work together to make it pleasant. Lots of choices on the menu.

We came to Chez Francois for dinner as other restaurants had a lengthy wait. The dining room was quiet and didn't have the best decor so we had fairly low expectations. The food ended up being fantastic and they were very accommodating with my dairy allergy. The young lady serving us was great. In short, good food but not great... More

Came for late breakfast after having a horrible experience at our hotel.

Husband liked his egg Benedict but has had better. From the other reviews... More

We enjoyed the staff and food and ate a breakfast, lunch and dinner there. They were best in that order. Great location away from downtown traffic.

We had an enjoyable visit this morning for breakfast. The food was served quickly, and was so good! My husband & I both couldn't get enough of the scrumptious potatoes :) Our kids (aged 2 & 4) both loved their selection off the kids menu (which had numerous healthy & tasty choices), and I appreciated how the waitress provided them...

My high school friend and I were meeting up to chat and hike and chose the Days Inn in Canmore to stay one night. Room 104 is across the corridor from the back of this surprisingly good restaurant (and the free breakfast room). We chose the caesar salad and french onion soup. Both were excellent. The soup was not too... More
