We had two breakfasts at this busy and popular restaurant. In both cases, the meals were excellent. The staff were very helpfui. You can reserve large tables at the restaurant if you have a group. We highly recommend it.

Went for a late lunch - 2 adults and 2 children (11 years old). Timely and friendly service. Big portions which I was surprised at considering it was French cuisine. My daughter loved the carmelized banana and Nutella French toast!

Although we have been to Canmore numerous times, we have never been told about this place... a hearty, healthy delicious breakfast was had by all. Friendly service too! We will be back!

This restaurant is also visited year-round by locals, a true sign that it is good. He makes great breakfasts and lunches, but his fine dining at night is even better known by restaurant visitors. Great choice, nice owners and friendly staff.

This is a great place to feel like you are having a breakfast in Quebec, but in the Rockies. They have cretons on the menu, and real maple syrup. You can also get croissants and crêpes. We also tried it for supper once, and the...More
