Gourmet Croissant is a neat little place that is on Bow Valley Trail (one of the main roads that runs through Canmore). We went in the early morning, just as it opened on a weekend. It was really quiet in the store, but a nice little comfortable location for sure!
I think as we were there soo early, they had nothing ready besides plain croissant and chocolate one. They didn’t have the sandwiches yet or something, but regardless, we ordered ourselves some plain croissants and some hot chocolate.
When we first got our croissant, we kind of giggled to ourselves, as it didn’t look flaky or much like anything for that matter! However, as we started eating it, it was really soft, a slight sweetness to the croissant, and it was crispy out the outside too. It turned out to be a really good croissant!! So, it is true – never judge a book by it’s cover! We were thoroughly impressed.
The hot chocolate looked spectacular, and of course tasted good. It’s quite hard to goof up on hot chocolate! 🙂 So, our overall experience at Gourmet Croissant was a positive one. I think I will return, but there are also soo many other great things I would love to try in Canmore! We’ll see!

Bubblemania is a place where I have been going to for many years now. They offer decent wings for a decent price. A new thing that is very handy, Bubblemania Cafe now accepts Visa & Mastercard! Before, they only took cash. Wing nights are now Mon to Thurs 2-7pm 28¢ Wings!
My favorite drink is either the pineapple or lychee green tea – COLD, with nothing in it. I’m actually not a fan of the “bubble” or the tapioca, as I tend to choke on it. Their drinks are quite good, but I must say — I think most of them are made from powder also! I’m a much greater fan of fresh fruit smoothies, but I risk the fruit not being in season.
We love ordering snacks from here, as they have amazing wings, they also have a ton of snacks and almost meal like food. We really haent’ tried anything that we didn’t like, we even enjoyed their Calamari!

Chinese food at it’s best! I like going here for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and all meals in between! For this particular instance, we went almost as a midnight snack, as we picked up people from the airport on a late flight. Their food is a little greasy, but it makes it look pretty and it tastes good too. It’s not overwhelmed by grease.
There is a wide array of options on the menu, so I’m sure you’ll find something for any appetite. I personally really love the shanghai noodles, but that’s just me and Chinese food. They do an excellent job at making it — but it’s a dish that is relatively simple.
Dinner at Sun Chiu Kee is really good, be sure to check out the dinner review too!
