“Small dive....HUGE YUM!”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

I asked on facebook a place to take my out of country friend to try her first Poutine. Although i'm in Calgary, La Belle Patate received the most votes. Thankfully, we were on our way home from Banff and stopped in. YUM YUM YUM! They are not skimpy on their toppings, we had the supreme which was onions, mushrooms, and bacon. GREAT bacon! For sure worth a stop in if you are in the Canmore/Banff area. The large is HUGE! So be ready to share it with 3 others if you order it lol. My husband had some sandwich that was bigger than he was and loved every bite of it. My friend and I had burgers, they were burgers, nothing special. But that Poutine...YUM!
It's a lil dive with happy workers inside. They were happy to add this or change that if you ask.

“Not healthy but DELICIOUS”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

Like others have noted, this place is somewhat off the beaten track. That said, if you're in Canmore or just passing through, I recommend it. Order small because the portions are quite big and your heart and gut will thank you for it later. But definitely the best poutine I've had in western Canada.

“Very well hidden gem”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

Cafeteria style place in Canmore's industrial area across the highway from town.
Does great poutine at great prices.

The easy way to get there is as follows:
Follow Hwy 1A (not the trans-Canada) south out of town towards Exshaw and turn left when you see the sign for 'Elk Run Industrial Estate' (or something like that)
Take the first proper left onto Glacier Drive.
Take the first left.
It will be on your right.

Closed on Mondays.

“Always Great!”
Reviewed 1 July 2014 via mobile

This one is our list of places we always visit while in town. Off the "main drag" but better than anything else in town if you are looking for good grub.

“Always wonderful!”
Reviewed 20 June 2014 via mobile

I visit La Belle Patate regularly because the service is great, and the good is delicious! This is one of Canmore's hidden gems. If you go, try the smoked meat sandwich, or the fully stocked meat poutine! Always great food, and genuine customer service!
