Probably a 4.5/5 rounded up. We came here and saw a line and was about to walk. Ended up waiting it out and wasn't disappointed Had the vegan scramble which was nice lighter breakfast after eating out for a few days. Smoked salmon club was...delicious and well balanced. Chicken quesadilla was alright, a bit of the weak point of meal Peach mango smoothie was good I really liked the side dish of potatoes that came with the dishes, not greasy and crunchy. Really good serviceMore

Ate here for breakfast three out of three days. The menu had several tempting options and I love the nod to other well-known breakfast spots like Cora. Smoothies were great, savoury crepes were tasty, I enjoyed the home style potatoes, had the Quebec combo (love...cretons, couldn’t resist them!) but the main event was the Bene poutine with smoked meat. If your heart can handle gravy AND Hollandaise for breakfast, I highly recommend. Only drawback is the coffee. It was fine but I would love a bolder, stronger cup, and maybe even espresso options to make it the perfect breakfast spot.More

Our family of four chose to visit for brunch on Mother’s Day. I was impressed with the short wait despite how busy they were with people coming and going. We only waited a few minutes before they called my name. The meals were good but...I bit into a sharp piece of plastic that was in my eggs Benedict. After I flagged it to our server, he took the plastic and said that he would let the kitchen know. He never came back with an apology, no discount, and no explanation. If I had bitten that plastic spike the wrong way or swallowed it, that would have done some damage for sure. I was certainly disappointed with the experience. On top of that, the server was not personable to say the least. The entire operation seemed more concerned on moving people in and out, with more focus on the people waiting for a table than the people already seated. As for the food, it was all good other than the plastic. Hence I agree with many on the reviews on the food quality and there was a wide selection of healthy options. I should also note that the servers at other tables looked much more friendly, refilling coffee and water rather than ignoring the customers. It could be that we simply stumbled across the one unfriendly server and then had some bad luck with the plastic. I wouldn’t go back but I can imagine others might have come across a more pleasant experience, especially if it was less crowded when they visited. My wife and children enjoyed their meals so we still had a good time overall.More

My wife and I stopped to have brunch here. We had eggs Benedict and sweet crepes. Everything was absolutely delicious and wait staff were very friendly. A bit higher priced but the quality and freshness of everything was well worth it!

good service, fast served and great breakfast menu. homemade cretons is a blast! The roasted potatoes were not those half frozen one you get served too often in family restaurant. I was recommended to try the Quebec combo and I wasn't disappointed. The chef takes...the time to prepare his plate. Server was friendly and efficient.More

We were here last year and it was a much better experience. I had the Bene Poutine with Canadian back bacon. The poached egg was perfect and as requested sans hollandaise. But only one lonely thin slice of back bacon for the entire bowl. Gravy...was yummy but the home fries were not crisp and the whole thing was only lukewarm. My husband had the American breakfast but the whole thing was cold - pancakes and French toast and the French toast was hard. So many interesting breakfast but probably won’t go back.More

Came on a girls trip and choose this place randomly! There were so many options for all different types of palate! We absolutely loved all the dishes we got! Even the coffee hits the spot. The only recommendation I would say is come around 9:30-10:30...(just to beat the rush). If you do wait, it’s not such a bad thing…you will just be drooling!!!More

I read the reviews of this place and was excited to try it on my last day in Canmore, as eggs Benny is my absolute favorite meal. I had asked for my eggs poached medium, but they were just a shade away from being raw....I could deal with that, but they also weren't hot and one of the muffins was soggy (maybe the egg wasn't drained enough?). Hollandaise sauce was quite tasty, though, and service was swift and friendly.More

We didn’t realize this restaurant was located in the quality inn and by looking at the menu online we were excited about the variety of options for food sensitivities and so decided to order take our for breakfast. We were extremely disappointed with the food...quality. We had 5 dishes total plus orange juice and coffee. The orange juice was disgusting and everyone ended up tossing their orange juice. Out of our 5 dishes 1 was not even edible and had to be thrown out (Traditional breakfast with eggs and bacon) and the other 4 were edible but not good at all. Would definitely never return or recommend.More
