The Market Bistro is located out of the heart of Canmore in the Three Sisters district. It is worth the 10 min. side trip. Relaxed bistro style for sure. Varied menu with good food and good service. Try the lemon pie.

What a great find! We enjoyed a wonderful lunch at this little bistro in the Three Sisters residential area of Canmore. The cream of spinach soup was amazing! The servers were really friendly and made us feel so welcome. We'll definitely be back the next time we're in Canmore.

When I found out about Market Bistro tucked away in Mountaineers Village, Canmore I was excited to bring my wife and her parents along. It was a quiet Sunday evening when we entered Market Bistro.

Excellent food and friendly atmosphere. Need to come to this restaurant to taste their desserts; the lemon pie is absolutely fantabolous. We also enjoy the "Mussels a la Provencale".

Nice quiet cafe with sit down service. Breakfast and lunch menu, coffee and wine. We had vegetable soup and salmon salad and both were great. Just a block from highway.

This is a small place in a very small cluster of businesses in what seems like a subdivision, like a suburban, neighborhood bistro. The service was friendly and attentive. I tried the following: - Cassoulet. Very good. - Salmon filet salad. Very good. - Bottled cider (Sorry, can't remember the brand). Really liked it. - Lemon pie. A special, house... More
