We tempted you a few weeks back with some delicious dishes to track down in Banff, and now its Canmore’s turn. Here are 10 plates of food to try that are well worth the short drive.

Aroma Divorciados

This breakfast dish offers up fried eggs in two Mexican sauces, green tomatillo and tomato ranchero, served on a corn tortilla with black beans. (837 Main St., 403-675-9913, aromamexicanrestaurant.com)

Communitea Upbeet Veggie Burger

The vegetarian in all of us can’t help but appreciate this open-faced beet and black bean patty topped with chopped cucumber, sprouts and spinach on a toasted ciabatta with garlic aioli. (1001 6 Ave., 403-678-6818, thecommunitea.com, @thecommunitea)

Crazyweed Pan Seared Rougie Duck Breast

A perfectly cooked duck breast is served up with broccolini and a bread pudding made with cherries and foie gras, finished with a tart cherry and red wine gastrique. (1600 Railway Ave., 403-609-2530, crazyweed.ca, @crazyweedkitch)

The Grizzly Paw Elk Burger

Try pairing one of this establishment’s thirst-quenching microbrews with this burger topped with beer caramelized onions, goat cheese, arugula, tomato, onion and a barbecue aioli. (622 Main St., 403-678-9983, thegrizzlypaw.com, @grizzlypaw)

Harvest Cafe Harvest BLT

Keep things relatively classic at this cute cafe with the BLT, served in a foccacia bread with mozzarella and a scallion mayo. (718 10 St., 403-678-3747, harvestcafe.ca, @harvestcanmore)

The Iron Goat Alberta Game Meatloaf

This tender meatloaf is made from a trio of meats – elk, bison and lamb – topped with sweet maple syrup and rosemary with bacon mashed potatoes on the side. Perfect for a rainy day. (703 Benchlands Tr., 403-609-0222, irongoat.ca, @irongoatcanmore)

JK Bakery Cherry Pie

Since most markets are knee-deep in fresh Okanagan cherries, take home a pie (or just grab a slice) of this freshly baked dessert from Canmore’s artisan bakery. (1514 Railway Ave., 403-678-4232, jkbakery.ca)

La Belle Patate Montreal Smoked Meat Sandwich

It’s hard to believe an authentic Montreal-style sandwich can be found at the foot of Rockies, but believe in La Belle Patate’s offering. Freshly shaved smoked meat on rye with mustard and, of course, a kosher pickle on the side. (102 Boulder Cres., 403-678-0077, labellepatate.com, @labellepatate)

Rocky Mountain Flatbread Co. Basil Blackberry Salad

The pizza here is tasty, but try something a little fresher for the warm weather with this salad. Crimini mushrooms, greens, red pepper and mango and tossed in a sweet, aromatic basil blackberry dressing. (838 10 St., 403-609-5508, rockymountainflatbread.ca)

Trough Dining Co. Bruschetta

Trough’s creative take on bruschetta sees Fairwinds Farm chevre on top of soft dough balls, with tomato slices, bacon, caper berries, a balsamic reduction, truffle oil and fresh basil. (725 9 St., 403-678-2820, thetrough.ca)
