Description: Alchemy Cafe is run by husband and wife team Sofia & Florian, who wish to bring to the small community of Dawson a new way of relating to food and each other by supporting local food, fair trade organic coffee, sustainable farming practices, creativity and a sense of community that values good conversations, sharing of stories and information. Alchemy Cafe is one of the only establishments in Dawson that does not serve alcohol, which makes it child & youth friendly. Alchemy cafe takes into consideration people with food allergies who find it hard to eat out when all that is on offer is burgers & fries. We wish to give people an alternative to the usual north american fair and promote healthy eating practices in a country where obesity is an epidemic. All our sauces, dips, dressings, cakes & desserts are made in Alchemy Cafe kitchen. You won't find fresher food in Dawson than at Alchemy Cafe.

“Awesome Coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

Wondering the street of Dawson we stumbled on Achemy Cafe. They serve up any kind of coffee you want.

I had a Macchiato and my wife an Americano.... perfect.

We had a macadamia nut & lime cheese cake to share and it was super.

Really funky place to go and eat or have a coffee.

Hope that helps.

“An Oasis”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

Had a few hours to myself on a sunny day in Dawson and wanted nothing more than to sip on some coffee and do a crossword puzzle. Wandered down the street and found Alchemy Cafe bustling with full tables and a stream of local folks. Turns out it had only been open for five days! The space is beautiful, all handcrafted and funky as a coffee shop should be. Very welcoming. They're still working out the kinks as far as the menu and service go. I had (at least) three servers and my very basic order - an iced Americano (espresso shot over ice) - wasn't well executed. Staff and customers alike were amazingly friendly, though, and my first server went out of her way to introduce me to a local with a shared interest in comic books. Delightful experience that made my stay in Dawson!
