Where to Eat

LOCAL (ALBERTA) BLOGGERS: Please Email Me to have your dining review added to this page. I am primarily interested in family-friendly restaurants/cafes, but am always looking for a great date night spot. :)

Lou Lou's Breakfast & Pizzeria, Jasper


  • Rocky Mountain Flatbread Company - Our favorite spot in Canmore! Excellent thin crust pizza cooked in a forno oven with the freshest ingredients.
  • Rocky Mountain Bagel - A great breakfast or lunch spot! Fresh bagels with fresh toppings.
  • Harvest Cafe - another excellent choice for breakfast.
  • Mercato - best coffee in Canmore!
  • Iron Goat Pub & Grill - Best patio in Canmore with tasty, reasonably priced meals and great kids' menu.
  • Tapas - Delicious collection of tapas perfect for date night; not very family friendly (no kids' menu).
Canmore Rocky Mountain Flatbread


  • Bow Valley Grill, Banff Springs Hotel - For a special occasion, you've gotta try the Weekend Brunch at the Banff Springs. Delicious food in a beautiful atmosphere. Resort casual dress code. Reservations recommended.
  • Rundle Lounge, Banff Springs Hotel - After a morning ski or hike, enjoy Afternoon Tea! There is even a Junior Royal Tea menu for kids. Not cheap, but a luxurious experience. 
  • The Bison - Brunch at the Bison is always wonderful. I like their eggs benedict and chill vibe! 
  • Chaya - Authentic Japanese food at reasonable prices! It can be hard to get a table (it's a small place), so place an order by phone and dine in the park or at your hotel/campsite.
  • Edo Japan - An inexpensive option and hey, it's near Dairy Queen so you're all set for dessert. ;)
  • Maple Leaf Grill & Lounge - Great apres-ski or date place. I've been going here for years and love the Canadiana menu.
  • Old Spaghetti Factory - A family favorite. Meals come with tea, coffee, pop or juice as well as soup or salad, and ice cream. A family of 4 can dine for $50!
  • Seoul Country Korean Restaurant - Friendly family-run Korean restaurant. We enjoy the bulgogi here. It can get busy with tour groups, so keep that in mind if you're in a hurry.
  • Sleeping Buffalo Dining Room, Buffalo Mountain Lodge - For exquisite Canadiana fare - think bison, elk, venison - and an award winning wine list, come here. 
  • Rocky Mountain Flatbread Company - Quick, fresh and delicious flatbread made with many local ingredients. We enjoy the sit-down restaurant in Canmore, so we were happy when a location opened at Cascade mall! Take-out only.
