My friend lives in Canmore and this is the second time she has recommended this place for breakfast. Very wide variety on the menu.

Very friendly efficient service. Greeted at the door and seated. At least 3 servers helped us during the meal and an owner or manager acknowledged us on the way out. Highly recommend.

Come here for the food, not the customer service. My family and I received terrible service on Mother's Day, but we do enjoy the food. They seem to be more mid to fine dining but their service and server's dress does not reflect this. Will not be returning.

We heard a lot of good things about this restaurant and were not disappointed. Lots of breakfast options. Very friendly staff. Busy place. Nice welcoming decor. Good value! Family friendly. Get the waffles along with your breakfast for sharing. I hear they have a good lunch/dinner.

If you love authentic French food, this is a great choice. We had the duck and it was as good as any I've even had. Desserts are delicious too. Loved the service. Very friendly and anxious to please..

Great place for breakfast. Consistently good food and service here, and reasonably priced. Coffee is pretty good too. Never had any issues here and would definitely come again.

Chez Francois has become one of our "go to" places to eat in Canmore, because it fails to disappoint. The food is always good, and there is enough variety in selection and price points to satisfy most diners. This time was no exception; we had a nice, reasonably priced dinner, as expected, and appreciated. The dining room has been renovated... More
