Chez Francois

Recommend To Friends

Bow Valley Trail (1604 2 Avenue)
  • Overview
  • Prices
  • Hours

Chef Jean Francois creates every component of his homemade meals from scratch using fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Each dish is handcrafted from an original recipe that he has been perfecting for over 30 years, and is served in a casual and friendly atmosphere. Dishes incorporate local organic produce, fresh seafood and Alberta meats with many gluten-free items. While the fixed-price menu is popular, locals also love Jean-François’ innovative Canmore breakfast. Guests enjoy the appetizers to share and many wines by the glass.

Atmosphere & Accolades

The spacious restaurant has many window-side tables, comfortable chairs and mountain views of the Rundle Range and Ha Ling Peak. There is a private dining room that is great for special events. Voted the #1 Canmore Breakfast and Brunch Place by the local newspaper and TripAdvisor.

Now in a NEW second location! Chez François is operating in a second location at the Chateau Canmore on Bow Valley Trail. Try their summer patio with astonishing views! They also now have a special room available for events, call can inquire!
