We stopped in just before closing but they were still happy to serve us and let us stay as long as we wanted to finish. I had the chicken club and my husband had the huevos rancheros. Both were delicious!

Breakfast here was so good, we came back again for a second time during our 3 day stay in Canmore. Highly recommend it for the fresh and delicious food.

Excellent morning pastries and the best potatoe hash browns we had in Canada, amazing! The portion sizes are big too. Worth the short drive to visit, get there early to avoid the queues.

Love the food, and try to go to this place whenever I am in Canmore. The only drawback is it is usually busy. So be prepared to wait for a table to open up. On warm days they have the patio which allows for more...More
