Best Breakfast in Canmore, Alberta – Chez Francois
Though this blog is titled ‘Best breakfast in Canmore’, frankly the breakfast in Chez Francois is one of the best in the Rockies. It is really quite surprising as well as it doesn’t appear to be anything other than a cheap restaurant attached to a hotel. However once you get inside and are immediately served by a real French waitress – you feel like there might be something about this place. The place is lit with beautiful natural sunlight with massive windows offering great views of the Rocky Mountains.
The breakfast choices are immense. So much so, in fact, that it can become a burden to try and choose. The eggs Benedict are renowned amongst locals with a ton of different options to choose from. The traditional breakfast is absolutely huge. Eggs as you like them, bacon or sausages, home fries, buttered toast and a constant flow of coffee is what you get and you probably won’t need to eat again for a long time! To sweeten the deal, it is only $8.95!
If you are coming from Banff and you are driving on the Bow Valley Trail, you can’t really miss it. Once you enter the town of Canmore, you will see it on your left hand side. The smoothies are sensational and better again breakfast is served until 2pm so you can enjoy those long lazy mornings and perhaps a long walk before tackling the huge breakfasts. Banff and the Rockies is the kind of place where you can work up a hefty appetite so for a cheap and excellent breakfast, Chez Francois in Canmore is the best choice around.
