Wonderful food with plenty of menu choice. The staff are always friendly and very welcoming. You can tell they appreciate your business! Should be on "you gotta eat here"!

“Poutine poutine!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

Friend says this is the REAL deal, just like Montreal poutine! AND already wants to go back for more!
The burger was great as were the veggie poutine and the chicken/peas poutine.
I am not a big poutine fan BUT i did enjoy this/ converted.
Busy place...friendly service, owner was helping clearing tables and taking orders to tables & take out orders were steady.
Located in the industrial area of Canmore. Look for it! Worth it!

“Amazing food, owners and staff make you feel like family!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013 via mobile

Always a pleasure. Brought my fiancé for her first time, she was hesitant about adding anything to poutine, however she is firmly a believer!
It's nice coming in and being remembered as the guy who always wears canucks gear!
Thanks guys, stand out bunch!
'Ian' 'meat lovers' and 'Smoked meat' are my favorites!

Squeaky cheese curds, juicy home made patties, coming back to try a smoked meat sandwich. Merci Uncle Tom

“A great authentic poutine experience in Canmore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

We stumbled upon La Belle Patate while searching for a quick lunch while in Canmore. It was everything we expected. The traditional poutine was excellent. You can select your portion size for the poutine, which is nice, as my wife and I shared one. The Montreal smoked meat sandwich was very good and filling.

It seems to be a very popular place on a weekend at lunch, so be prepared to wait for a place to sit, and also for your food.

We will definitely be returning!
