Canmore is one of the most beautiful places in all of Canada to enjoy sunshine, mountain views, outdoor activities, and food and beverage on one of many restaurant patios. We are lucky to have such an extensive network of amazing establishments to enjoy our beautiful summer days. Here are 5 of our favourite patios in the Bow Valley in no particular order (and it was TOUGH to choose just 5)!
1. The Blake
Located on Bow Valley Trail, The Blake is one place in Canmore that is almost guaranteed to be busy during lunch and dinner. The Blake is a Brewhouse & Distillery, so on top of finding some specially-crafted beverages, you will also find a menu with a wide variety of food options and a patio with exceptional views!

2. The Wood
The Wood is located near the end of Main St. in Downtown Canmore and features a beautiful patio with unobstructed views of the Three Sisters, Mount Lawrence Grassi, and Mount Rundle. The restaurant itself has been built as a log cabin and serves fusion Canadian food, a large draft menu in an environment that the whole family will love.

3. Stirling at Spring Creek
Spring Creek is one of the most desirable Bow Valley neighbourhoods to live in for a number of reasons. Located just south of downtown Canmore, Spring Creek is developing it's own infrastructure of dwellings, shopping, bike paths, and places to dine. Stirling is a premiere place to dine in Spring Creek, offering a quiet patio with a million dollar Rockies view!

4. Iron Goat
The Iron Goat is located in a different part of town than the other restaurants on this list. Situated in the Benchlands neighbourhood, the view of the entire mountain range to the west of Canmore is completely unobstructed. The restaurant is in a beautiful three-story timber frame building, and provides friendly service, tasty food, and delicious drinks!

5. Market Bistro
Located in the Three Sisters Mountain Village, the Market Bistro serves modern Italian and French cuisine unlike anywhere else in the Canadian Rockies. Market Bistro is family-run, and delivers a relaxing atmosphere in a part of town that has a more local vibe.
