This is Canmore's Sunday brunch place. If you're planning on going then, make sure you get there before church gets out. They really pack them in! But it's also great for fine French cuisine at other times of day - and the owners and staff...More

Order the American Platter, a little bit of everything and all delicious! Can be very busy especially on weekends, which is understandable. Great value for money. Fluffy french toast, amazing pancakes!

Best breakfast in Canmore that's for sure. The sweet bene combo is just what you're looking for. Egg bene and crepes?! Don't look further, go at chez francois for a memorable breaky.
