We went her on a recommendation from our tour guide... it did not disappoint! There was a great selection of breakfasts, from pancakes, fresh fruit etc etc. Reasonable priced and well worth a visit. They also provide and extensive lunch and dinner menus, but we didn't sample them, just breakfast.

We have been eating breakfast/brunch here for 20 years, wouldn't try anywhere else in Canmore. Food is well priced, and consistently prepared and served.

I didn't realise how hard it was to find a nice place for breakfast in Canmore to dine in. There is so Many coffee huts with pre made food. One of the places we went into recommended Chez's and we thought finally a place! The waiter there Genevieve I think it was?! Was absolutely lovely, great service. The manager on... More

French restaurant attached to Days Inn hotel. Came for both supper and breakfast. Supper was average "French" food - my lobster bisque was not edible (grainy, brown coloured, with odd taste and unlike any other lobster bisque I've had) however my golden turnip-candied nut salad was fantastic! A bit on the pricier side. However, breakfast was so so worth it!... More

You do not have many choices for breakfast restaurants in Canmore and this one is willing to pen early for breakfast and therefore they capture all the breakfast eaters. In my opinion, I would rate them average at the most. The waitress was not professional and was playing with the baby of a customer there. I believe the mother once... More

Went to Chez Francois for supper and then also for breakfast the next morning. Mainly due to its proximity to the hotel - as its attached! Let me just say that everyone else in my party had nothing but praise for their food. I can't say it was remarkable food but maybe, as the ancient knight says at the end... More

Have been to this restaurant several times over the last few years. The facility is getting dated and the service was just okay. Food was average; not as good as previous experiences. When a bus tour arrived, service decreased significantly.

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.

Feel sorry to rate this restaurant so low as the waitress and chef were really helpful but the details just need to be perked . The place feels tired . The menu was ok but not inspiring . The bison burger was good and the waitress suggested that as I have health problems and that was the best option even... More
