This cute little cafe is extremely popular in Canmore. It's located on a hill overlooking the bow valley. There is plentiful outdoor seating. The indoor seating is also adequate. The menus are written on chalkboards all over the counter. Lots of good breakfast choices, very healthy omelettes, etc.

We were up the Sulphur Mountain with the gondola. The Summit Cafe is beautifully perched high up enabling each visitor with a good view when seated along the window sides as well as the open deck picnic tables.
I was quite disappointed with the quality of the burgers, small few bits of veggie packs that were priced without thought. $2.50 for a small PAC of Lays? This is rip off
I
All in all the pricing is not customer friendly and those with 2/3young kids, I am sure the outing itself is expensive, the tickets, etc. and to add on unreasonable pricing , not right. There is No seniors discount in tickets either.
The items on sale are very limited wraps healthy fare like salads should be on the menu too, as not everyone likes burgers!
Come on guys improve soon ,people come from all over the globe , we have to get our economy pushed up , therefore we need to market our world famous heritages --let's give value for money as word of mouth is the best advert. Am sure Brewester will change and my next visit to this marvellous mountain will be great with great views, good well priced healthy food naughty foods too!! Let people from all walks of life and the globe know- we are honest proud Canadians and we do not believe in rip off.

Great food with a Mexican flare to breakfast - hell yeah! Atmosphere is cozy and very sociable, lots of times in the early mornings you'll be seeing locals coming to get fueled up before they head out to do a big day hike, mountain climbing etc
The only downside to this place is the wait time due to its popularity, it is a bit more than you would like to expect, so make sure you are not in a hurry....
If you come on the weekend you hit the jackpot with their extra gooey yummy cinnamon buns!

We were the first people in. We had to wait for the grills to warm up. The employees were very friendly and offered coffee while we waited. Our breakfast were served. Standard stuff but the hash browns were amazing. I really liked the home town feel to the restaurant!
