Quarry, Canmore - closed replaced with...

Good Earth as we attempt to beat the world record for most coffee shops per capita!!

  1. Mixed feelings about that. I never enjoyed any of the over-priced fare at Quarry, but I really wish it wasn't replaced by a GE. Missed opportunity for something more interesting to open in a cool spot.

    How long has Quarry been closed for? I have to admit I haven't even paid attention to that spot for quite a while.

        I share those sentiments exactly. Had a few very average meals at the Quarry in the past year or so. It hasn't been the same since the original owners sold it some time ago. As for Good Earth......yuck. I respect their philosophy but I've never eaten a single thing there that I enjoyed and there's more than enough of them already. I would never go to a good earth with the Community coffee shop right around the corner.....I suppose the tourists will however.

        It's likely a good business decision, but a shame none the less to see a bland franchise taking over in one of Canmore's premier restaurant spaces.

          that is not good news at all - Good Earth ? one place for some unknown reason I keep trying..and its always the same... complete BLEAH...possibly its the challenge of understanding how it is that they do what they do so poorly and still survive.
          Possibly the lease rates are too high for non franchise establishment?
