Never disappoints, my wife says they make the best eggs Benedict. I have the omelet which I would recommend as well. All breakfasts come with fresh fruit, nice touch.

Tried 3 places before we saw this restaurant which appears to be where the locals come. Great food with homemade Hollandaise sauce (made daily) which is phenomenal. Don't miss out on this gem!

We had crepes ham with "hollandaise sauce" that was lumpy and very salty I doubt it was made from scratch. There was supposed to have ham in it but there wasn't just sauce and veggies.

Great Breakfast menu with something for everyone. Lunch and Dinner again consistent. Service friendly and efficient, even when the place is packed and everyone comes in at once. A little worn looking, the food is still consistently good and reasonable for a town full of restaurants and tourists.

While staying g at the Day's Inn, we went for breakfast at Chez Francois. The meals were great! Really liked the combo - one eggs Benedict (multiple choices) with two crepes (again multiple choice). Tried a variety of combinations and they were all good. The hollandaise sauce is really good. Would love to know how they make !

Stopped by for brunch on our way out of town. Restaurant was very busy, and the staffed seemed a bit rushed. It was a long wait for our food (about an hour), but it was worth it. Food was delicious and with so many choices on the menu, everyone was able to get something that they really enjoyed. Will eat... More

It was good enough but I was hoping for better. It was similar to chain breakfast restaurants. I would try other restaurants first before going back

Excellent food that is completely unique to the Rocky Mountains. Home made duck confit, fresh crepes, and lobster soup are just a few of the awesome menu items. Romantic interior, antique decor and friendly staff. Highly recommended.
