I had 2 breakfasts here while I stayed in the B&B - both excellent! When I stopped at the visitor centre entering Yellowknife by motorcycle I told the young girl there where I would be staying and quickly she said "You're going to like it!" The place was bustling for lunch and dinner which is always a good sign to... More

Went there based on TripAdvisor reviews! Excellent service and the food was delicious. I ordered the omelette (forgot the name, but it's similar to the western omelette). Food arrived quickly. Went there during the week around noon. It was quiet during my visit and was able to pick a water view table. Cinnamon bun was absolutely delicious. A bit expensive... More

I've taken two visiting family members out to eat here. Neither of them are very into "northern" fare like fish or moose so this is a nice place to take someone with a cozy atmosphere and comfort food. The food and the soups are excellent. Love all the art on the walls and there is a nice view of the... More

The waiter was very nice too. We had a lunch in one time and had pickerel fish. It was good but not great. The Pickerel fish that we had at the Bullocks Bistro... More

Awesome Eggs Bennie, staff and service were excellent. The atmosphere is great and the girls keep the coffee cups full. Beautiful view of the Great Slave whether it is summer or winter.

This is also a bed and breakfast. Nice lake side location. Nice decor. Recommended by locals, but I did not like my meal. Fish over cooked, broccoli-spinach soup was thin spinach soup. Also, this cafe was closed at odd times, so it was our third attempt before we found it open.

Amazing Arctic char Benedict - worth the walk to come here. Tasty on The Works Omelette. Perhaps the patio is open when it's warmer as the view is great!

I went here for the first time on May 28 for breakfast and I was so impressed. The staff were friendly and attentive and the breakfast was superb. The view from the restaurant was fab since it is located on the shores of Yellowknife Bay on Great Slave Lake.

I like going here on the weekends. They have great food for breakfast and brunch. Nice atmosphere. Lovely view of great slave lake. The wait staff are friendly. I wish they would refill the coffee in a more timely manner, as they serve it in very small mugs.
