Coffee addicts: here you go!

Best coffee in town so far! Double shot if you are in for a strong one. Cookies, free water, melted tuna sandwich, you name it. Nice little place for lunch!

This cafe is the best coffee shop/lunch spot in town, and the prices reflect it... unless you go on a Tuesday when you can get a hot bean beverage for two bucks which helps to off set the $10 sandwiches.

$12.00 for a pre-wrapped, tasteless panini (the size of a deck of cards) which left me still hungry and wondering why I had bothered at all to insult my stomach with it? The coffee was so-so. My husband said his cinnamon bun was average. The cashier did not know how to process my MasterCard and had to call for help.... More

A group of us had breakfast all week, and coffees. The breakfast panini and burritos were delicious. I lived for the pumpkin spice latte! Everyone enjoyed the different scones and muffins each day, including the gluten free option. The restaurant had nice seating and the staff was friendly. The only weird thing was the bathroom was in another building (??).... More

In the red building with the huge yellow musher and dogsled mural. Very Clean. Delightful customers. Staff is cheerful and happy to assist with menu option. Sandwiches and a specialty chocolate area is a perfect combination with tea or coffee. Breakfast was good, A bit pricey. Truffles were scrumptious.

Both chocolate and carrot cakes are must-trys - decadent. A lot of the squares are also amazing. I particularly like the pumpkin and orange-pecan. All the food is high quality, exceptionally flavourful, and use sophisticated recipes and combinations. Prices are high but the quality is there. Great place to go for a splurge.

Looks like a great little cafe... interesting clientele, good location and a descent menu. I had a thai salad - small but good quality ingredients. My wife had an overpriced (but good quality) panini sandwich. But what sunk the experience was the staff. Sometimes you meet someone who doesn't like their job or for whatever reason do not want to... More

One of a number of fine coffee shops with fine food and baked goods in Whitehorse. You could go to Starbucks or Tim Horton's, but that's something you could do anywhere - so try one or more of Yukon's excellent coffee shop/bakeries. Most offer wi-fi, but the Chocolate Claim does not. Their food is very good, but a bit pricey.... More

I have had sandwiches with more filling, less bread. The bread is good tho. The food is good, not exceptional. The chocolate cake I had from here, at a work function, was extraordinary - and extraordinarily expensive. Not my first choice as is too expensive for a coffee counter experience.

We stopped by here after a day at the Rendezvous Sourdough Festival at about 4pm. We were the only ones in the restaurant and not much food was left and staff were busy cleaning up so I thought that they were closed. But staff said that they were open for another hour and if by saying that alone, lots of... More
