We were here for breakfast twice, and the food was delicious. The service was super friendly, even at 8 am on a Sunday morning. They serve excellent coffee, make scrumptious French toast and you can meet everyone here from Klondike gold miners to the Commissioner...More

Came into town for a quick meeting with an account. Stopped in for a Latte then came back and they made a fantastic sandwich for my drive back to Whitehorse. Great selection for all your meals needs......

The lines were long but quickly gone through. We got our food relatively quickly and enjoyed some hot chocolate and sandwiches.

Our daughter, who works in Dawson, steered us here on our first morning in town and we came back every day for breakfast. The baked goods are fresh and indeed often still warm when served, the coffee hot and in three varieties daily, and the...More

Good selection of sandwiches, burgers and the like. Probably the busiest restaurant in Dawson. Order like fast food, then wait for them to call you. Helpful dealing with food allergies and restrictions.

We stopped here with friends on a Land Tour and had a great lunch. We had a great burger and split sweet potato fries. Yum, Yum! I would highly recommend this little spot. Great friendly staff too.

The staff are friendly even when busy, the coffee worth returning for. Typical baked goods and good for a quick bite to eat. It's fun to sit and watch people passing by.

We stopped at the Riverwest Bistro for breakfast. The menu is posted on the wall and on the counter. You line up and place your order, find a table, and then they bring it out to your assigned number. There were quite a few choices...More

Great choice for an early dinner. Glad our kids don't mind eating at 4:30 because this place closes at 5. Points for Gluten Free buns, and they score big for apologizing and re making my wife's bison burger (which was delicious!) Big menu, reasonable prices,...More
