Here’s a quick rundown of the best restaurants in Canmore that we enjoyed with family and friends.
On our summer vacation to the Canadian Rockies, we “discovered” Canmore, a welcoming, down-to-earth mountain town just a few miles east of Banff National Park. To be more honest than necessary, we only ended up staying in Canmore because we booked the trip late enough that there wasn’t a lot of availability in the town of Banff. That was a lucky turn of events. After two nights at the schmantzy Rimrock Resort in Banff, we decamped to Canmore. Turns out Banff, for all its beauty, is SUPER touristy, and we found the food options to be pretty meh. Canmore, though, is fabulous. A real mountain town. A real town in general, which Banff is…kinda not these days. Here are the best restaurants in Canmore to visit with a family (and, if you’re lucky, with friends from Calgary who come to hike with you and stay for dinner and ice cream).
