Great food and beverages with a deck that has excellent views of Back Bay. Sit there on a summer afternoon with a beverage and watch the Ahmic Air floatplanes coming and going.

The Wildcat Cafe lunch that we had was awesome! The roti was perfect and I was a bit surprised to find it in Yellowknife! The chef did a great job with all of our meals and I'd highly recommend this historic restaurant. Great place to...More
