“Costly coffee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2013 via mobile

Yes the coffee is good but I don't think it is quite worth the extra cost compared to other nearby gourmet outlets.

“Delightful and Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2013

Mountain Mercato is a wonderful cafe that all should visit! I have been here all summer, and I can honestly say it is one of my favourite lunch places! Their salmon panini is superb, with ever changing seasonal preserves. Their trio crostini is a delightful combination of a multitude of flavours. You can't go wrong with any choices here.

“Thanks for letting me eat here.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2013

Good food, yes, but not short on attitude and more expensive than the much better Cafe D'Artigiano in Vancouver. Glad to see that others have had better experiences.

“Best Panini's Ever”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2013

Stopped by for lunch, the place looked appealing - I was a little leery of ordering Panini’s - dull, assembly line style are cropping up in every fast food joint - however the Panini's at Mountain Mercato were fantastic - made from a fresh, pastry like flatbread - absolutely amazing – about $10/each. The coffee was very good also, the flourless cake a bit dry.

Convenient location in downtown Canmore on Main Street, you can sit outside and watch the people walk by. The restaurant also has a food shop with a wide variety of Italian condiments, jams, oils, coffee, etc.

Their website has a recipe for flatbread which I assume was the same as used for the Paninis - must try it sometime.

“Good food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2013

I stopped for lunch with my wife at this location on Main Street in Canmore. The menu is limited but our lunch was excellent. I had a turkey panini with pickled fennel in it; it was melt-in-your-mouth good. My wife had the veggie panini which she liked as well. Fairly large portions. We shared a flour-less chocolate cake which was good, albeit a little dry to our taste. Coffee was also excellent. Very friendly staff. All in all an excellent lunch, though a tad pricey to our taste. I recommend it!
