Harvest is tucked way on 9th Street in downtown Canmore. This place is not flashy in any way. They have a small sunny patio for the days that allow for sitting outside. Inside is pretty rustic decor but clean and generally not too crowded. They have daily specials; usually two soups and a couple hot dishes. On top of that they have a great selection of yummy baked goods and cookies, including some gluten-free options. They have a standing list of delicious breakfast items (breakfast parfait, homemade granola, french toast), salads and lunch sandwiches (grilled cheese!). Pretty much everything is made to order. The coffee is good and there is little waiting (see Coffee Mine).
So what is the problem? They make no bones about catering to the local crowd. They are only open Monday through Friday, starting at 10am (too bad for the early risers). So if you are only Canmore on your days off (i.e. Saturday and Sunday) too bad – you are not going to Harvest. If you are lucky enough to spend a few extra days in town or are playing hooky, then venture over to 9th Street and take in the scene at Harvest and feel like a local.
