We were looking in Canmore for a pancakes and maple syrup breakfast/brunch. Chez Francois delivered! There breakfast menu continues up until somewhere between 2pm and 3pm - I saw three different finishing times printed about the place so check before you go if you’re looking...More

The breakfast is great!! Toast is crispy, French toast is soft and Egg Benedict is great. The potatoes are also yummy. Just love everything except there is no choice for coffee

We ate at this restaurant twice - once for dinner and another for breakfast. The food was great, the staff really helpful and good service, and the light filled space relaxing and just right. Couldn't ask for anything better.

If you like butter and cream, you can find it here. Their msnu had lots of choices and the desserts looked incredible. I had to refrain.

This restaurant has lots of seating and we were seated immediately. The service was great, thanks Anne. It’s hard to decide what to order because the menu is huge. The food came out fast and was great!

Authentic French cuisine and well executed meal. Server helped to make the chef understand our requirements to perfection. We were very informally dressed ant it was very acceptable. Merci!

If you're a fan of French cuisine, this is THE place you have to go. Nice choice, all fairly priced and the meals we had were very good. Good service, OK choice of wines with most that will not break the bank.
