Whether you are heading out on a hike or driving on to Vancouver, this is THE place for a hearty sandwich that’ll keep you going for a long time. The buns are seedy or plain, the meat fresh with lots of options. The end result...is a bun full of yumminess! A little off the beaten track, but worth the hunt. The staff are so friendly, eager to meet your needs. Check out the store for other unique surprises.More

as a treat we headed over to Valbella's on a Friday afternoon to see what we could put together for supper. Too many choices. Beef skewers, chicken skewers, chicken Kiev, chicken stuffed with apple and brie (ok this is my favourite), pork schnitzels, chicken schnitzels,...freshly baked bread, pies, and it goes on. Have i mentioned the frozen spaetzle? it's an amazing place.....More

Whether you want to sit down for a great sandwich or want to pick up high quality gourmet foods, this is the place to stop if you're in Canmore. It's easy to find, just off the 1A Highway on the east / industrial side of...Canmore. Inside it's not hugely spacious, but that makes it very cozy. On my visit, I picked up something for dinner, and was it every delicious!More

Fabulous place for lunch! Great service and lots of homemade product available for takeout. Chicken pot pie is awesome for an easy dinner at home.

If you don’t love meats and cheeses, then this won’t be for you. If you do, this is nirvana. There is a deli and a café. There are meats, sausages, cheeses, paté, jerky, yummy pies both family and individual sizes, plus jams, chutneys and fresh...and frozen meats, sausages, pies etc to take away and cook / reheat at home. There’s also European biscuits and chocolates, all at really reasonable prices. It’s all too hard to work out how much you can reasonably take away and not overdo it. Way cheaper to visit the source if you are in the area and have transport than paying the mark-up to buy their products in a restaurant although some local supermarkets also stock their wares.More

Arguably the best gourmet pies in Canmore! We ordered a Chicken Pot Pie and an Apple Pie for dessert and my only regret was not ordering another Chicken pie!!! Both were absolutely delicious with hearty pies of chicken and veggies and tons of apples respectively....And if you are stopping by don’t forget to pick up a loaf of German Dark Rye bread! It’s wunderbar!!!More

Valbella's isn't just a café or a deli or a bakery or a European import store - it's all of those and more. Unique sausages, prepared skewers, meats (including bison), and dinners - just ready to be cooked at home - are just the perfect...supper when we arrive in Canmore for a weekend of skiing or biking or hiking. The food is top notch, the service is friendly and efficient. But for me it's the baking - breads, buns and pies!!! phenomenal!More

The soups and sandwiches here are always so fresh and delicious. The products are superior to anything else in that category in Alberta. And after you're done eating, you can choose from a variety of fresh and frozen products to take home.

Absolutely delicious food. We tried the Chicken Pot Pie, Shepard's Pie and the Beef Sandwich, all of which were tasty and reasonably priced. Saw a lot of locals going in and out. However, what stood out was the food truck outside, the Beef Burger and...the Cod+Potato Cake prepared by Chef Felix was the best we've had in Canada. Restaurant standard in a humble food truck.More
