Ate lunch at this local restaurant all of which was excellent even the glass of wine
Great selection of wraps,paninis,and their soup is very much worth trying with a daily choice.
Their food market has a very varied choice of specialty food .
Well worth the visit

My husband and I ate here quite a few times while visiting Canmore. The Greek salad was delicious and everything in it was organic. How wonderful to find some organic food on our travels. We would definitely eat here again if our travels ever bring us back to beautiful Canmore, Alberta. The gals who waited on us could have been a little more friendly but that would not keep us from coming back again.

Most weekends I will end up sipping coffee at the Mercato at some point and probably munching a rich panini with a book or a slice of the Globe and Mail in hand. Not a great place if you want to have a proper meal, but the absolute best place in town to take a magazine and a friend and have a good catch-up over gourmet coffee and exquisite tapas.

The Mercato is pricey, yes, but you get what you pay for. The service isn't warm and fuzzy but is professional, the water is free and has lime slices in it, the coffee is good (Phil and Sebastian), the food is delicious, and the shop is full of food art. (Think French lavender, fig and port preserves, Italian lady fingers - that kind of thing). My only wish is that they would: 1) bring back the heavy cups that kept the coffee so nice and hot, and; 2) serve the wine in wine glasses rather than Italian-style in a tumbler. Otherwise, a character location in a character town.

The price of the coffee is slightly more than the other places on the main street, however you get what you pay for. This is the best coffee, by far. The dulce latte is recommended as I've not had anything like it before.

As for the food, they obviously have someone who knows how to cook, prepare and present. When they do the half price platters on Thursday/Friday/Saturday you can't get that kind of food from anywhere else in town!

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