The breakfast was delicious. The Summit is located off the main drag but just minutes from the center of town. This is a great place to slow down the pace and enjoy breakfast with a view. I recommend trying the cinnamon roll.

Whenever I get to Canmore, Summit Cafe is my favourite breakfast spot. I like that the menu stays true to good home cooked meals. Sandwiches and sweets are delicious too.

I have been a couple of times and not been disappointed! The place is quirky and they give you an item (rubber chicken, dinosaur) as your order marker to bring out food. The cinnamon bun was excellent and so were the eggs!

We had breakfast two mornings, excellent food & coffee & muffins. Not much inside seating but several tables outside & the crisp mountain air was just what we wanted. Even when busy, they are fast so relax & enjoy, it's worth it.
