“Good place for breakfast”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

We went there this AM for breakfast and we had a wonderful experience. The food was excellent as was the service. My wife had an omelette - spinach and swiss cheese with fruit and it was excellent. had steak and eggs and it was good and included potatoes and fruits. The service was fast, friendly and efficient . The waitress topped up our coffee 3 times during the meal. The price was also good for the good portions served.

“Best breakfast I can remember!”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

We were staying at the Econo Lodge where you can upgrade to a free breakfast for an extra $6 per person Sure. Why not? We were not expecting anything special, but special is exactly what we got. Our $6 upgrade got us a choice of 2 very hearty yet very standard breakfasts, but there were so many unique choices on the menu that we opted instead to use the coupons for $10 off each meal. Our breakfast was about $40 before the discount. This place is not cheap, but it is definitely worth the extra money. I had the apple, brie, ham and maple syrup crepes, (at last, someone understands me!) and my husband had a combo plate with asparagus eggs benedict, and cream cheese and strawberry crepes, with a side of bacon. Both meals came with fruit and potatoes. The portions were huge and we both commented that we would never be able to finish the meals... right before we gulped down every last crumb. This is a real French restaurant- the staff even speak French to each other- and they know how to create a great experience.

“Great coffee and food”
Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

Fabulous as usual. Loved my apple cheddar crepes. My friends had egg breakfasts that looked totally yummy. They must have been as there was nothing left on our plates. A new staple restaurant for our Canmore weekends (new to my family that is)!

“Best breakfast”
Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

I can only comment on breakfast but If you go, go here hungry...generous servings. Super friendly service and great food. Love the generous addition of fresh fruit slices. I read the comment regarding dirty chairs, bathrooms, and ants....we did not see any of this and will go back, perhaps to try lunch or dinner.

“Dirty and ants crawling all over”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

We were looking for a nice restaurant to celebrate a late Mother's Day dinner.
We were the first and only ones in the restaurant for the first hour and a half. Service was slow, prices on their website do not match what they charge, chairs and bathrooms were filthy, ants were interrupting our dinner, food was mediocre at best.
Drinks ordered were poor.
This will be the only time we will ever dine here and will not recommend anyone to dine here unless the actually clean prior to patrons arrive.
Have never reviewed a restaurant before but felt compelled to let people know.
A Friday night and when we left at 6:45 there were only 3 people in the place...that should have been our first clue this place is not good.
