After many disappointing (and over priced) breakfast experiences in Canmore, so glad we found this place. Generous portions that are worthy of the price. LOVE the huevos rancheros (reminds me of being at our favourite Mexican resort- pure gluttony and indulgence!) We have a place...More

Not sure how this gets to be #2 in Canmore (as of this writing). Very average. Cafeteria ordering and they deliver to your table. If it's busy, you'll have the people waiting in line that want your table watching you like a pride of lions...More

We had the traditional and the breakfast sandwich - both were fantastic. The staff were really friendly and the place was packed. Food was hot and came quickly considering how busy it was! Will be back again!

This is a fantastic little spot for a great on-site or take out breakfast! The food is incredible. There is also a little bakery/convenience store next door for any incidentals or pastries on the road.

This can be a bit of a wait, you order at the front and they bring the food to your table. We got the huevos rancheros which was a big portion and very good. The coffee is self serve with $1 refills. Consider coming here...More

Great breakfast with nice choices. My husband & I don’t always agree on restaurants but this was an exception. We loved the omelets and fresh fruit. Their hot tea was also great. Looking forward to another visit.
