This was our go-to cafe during our stay in Yellowknife, friendly, cosy, a great slection of ifferent flavoured teas and vegan options on the menu. Nicely decorated and had board games and books so could have easily spent an afternoon hear warming up.

Low key, simple furnishings, amazing food. They had something like 50 choices of tea in jars. Warm and cosy.
