Besides the wonderful views and fun times playing in the snow, we head to Canmore for the food!!

We stayed for 3 nights right in Canmore and while we were in a condo with a full kitchen, we ate out most of the time.

Friday lunch sunny blue sky = beer & burgers on Grizzly Paw patio. A great local brew pub that makes all their own burger patties & sauces & beer & soda. We both had the bison burger with different toppings. Good flavor, not too salty, not too try, good amount of toppings. Great house made bbq sauce. Decent fries.

For dinner we tried something new. Had never been to Sage bistro. Quaint/cozy old log cabin. Canadian cusine at its best, including venison meatloaf! French onion Soups to start were good, but prefer traditional swiss cheese on top instead of oka (too mild). Meatloaf was tasty, moist, nice mushroom gravy. Sweet potato fries were amazing, crispy, flavorful. Desserts were large & good, but not mind blowing. Although my husband might disagree, he loved his banana/vanilla cream pie.

Saturday lunch picked up wraps from cafe in Lake Louise to eat at top of mountain, they were big tasty & reasonably priced. The highlight was the fudgey brownie from the bakery in LL. It was super fudgey and rich & dark. A little heavy on the icing though.

dinner: we were going to go out to the Rocky Mountain Flatbread company but decided we were too tired to go out...opted for ordering in pizza. Did not expect to get the best pizza I have ever had. Stone baked, crispy thin crust perfect amount of toppings & cheese, no grease. This was all from an Italian place in town called Santa Lucia. Gotta find stone baked pizza here in Edmonton.

Sunday brunch: Summit cafe. Best breakfast in town. Local favorite, off the main street, great patio, the bakery next door has the freshest cheese bread & other die for.

ahhhh....stuffed still!!

on a note...I have always recommended Zona's cafe in Canmore, they are closed. Anyone know why? They were a favorite, overall, not just canmore.
