David and his charming wife and staff are passionate on bringing the finest Montreal-style poutines, smoked meat sandwiches and burgers you'll ever hope to put in your mouth....
Everyone has heard of Schwartz's [of Montreal] famous reputation for Montreal smoked meat sandwiches...but having eaten the high-stacked beauties' served here...I couldn't imagine anyone could do it better. A delectable offering of different fresh made poutines will have you returning again and again...and doing double-time on the treadmill...but hey... The double -pattied Belle Burger is yet to be 'stuffed in my gob' [an Anthony Bourdain expression]....i stared lovingly at one while it was on its way to the table..oh my...a thing of beauty....i do feel that their OBC hot dog needs work to be dynamic.....a bigger dog,,,,bigger bun....a mound of cheese...David, get this dog looking 'awesome' on the plate..give us something 'wow'.mon ami'...The place is Simple, clean, excellent pricing.....a little off the beaten path...off elk industrial rd.....its bright and cheery.....WITH HOCKEY-PUCKISH DECOR, You've gotta' luv having a chance to 'go and eat French-people- food....here in a no-frills setting..yet with great freshness and quality. Apparently Celine Dion and hubby bought out Schwartz's in effort to keep it French-owned,,,,but maybe...just maybe....she bought-out the wrong joint'..

Words really aren't the best way to describe how amazing La Belle Patate is, but sadly that is all I have. This is the hidden gem of Canmore. It is up in the light industrial area, and if you didn't know it was there you could drive right past it.

I have had several different kinds, but my favourites are the ones that have the Montreal smoked meat or sausage. Also, I have had the specials a few times and they have been tasty.

I would suggest coming here with a friend or two so that you can easily sample a few different kinds.

Fantastique! Hubby and I dined here last night for his birthday. After searching for Canmore restaurants online and finding this, the promise of having real genuine Montreal
smoked meat sandwiches and authentic style Poutine was all we could think about! This place definitely did not disappoint. We shared a mile-high sandwich and a Supreme Poutine. My only regret was that I ordered a medium instead of a large.
If you are going to be in Canmore at all, treat yourself and try this place. In fact, now having tried it, it just might be worth the time and gas to drive out from Calgary for dinner once in a while!

Very yummy - so many choices on the menu I feel like we'll have to go back. Poutine extraordinaire! A little tricky to find, kind of out of the way but well worth the drive. A little on the pricey side as well. $32 for lunch for 2.

Very decent prices. Two large orders of their poutine can easlily feed a family of 4 for well under $30.
