The menu has nothing unique thus I didn't try anything I was just looking for a cafe with WiFi and they don't have except for guests at the B&B. However they were kind enough to provide the WiFi password for $5

The carrot cake with marscapone cream cheese is awesome. I liked the local artwork on the walls. Highly recommend this establishment.

Do try this cafe for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. There is a patio in nice weather. Great food & friendly service with old town Yellowknife charm.

I was really impressed with the layout and 'vibe' of this place. I sat outside, it was a beautiful day. I went down to the water and sat on the dock after my meal, such a nice place. The server wasn't really very knowledgeable, I...More
