Coffee is always hot and to your liking. In the morning add a delicious savory scone or muffin or grab awesome Cheesecake Brownie or Berry Cheesecake slice for later in the day. You won't regret it!!!

This is one of those places that you would go to only for a treat as the food is very expensive. That being said, the chocolate cake was to die for. The interior is small but seems to suit the needs of those eating there. I suspect many just get coffee to go.

I'm glad to hear you enjoyed a slice of cake. It is very popular. While we are aware that price point plays a role in our clients' decision making we are very focussed on providing the best quality food, beverage and service possible. More

This establishment provides great business lunches, awesome soups and good coffee. The food is just that little bit different from the usual fare.

The Chocolate Claim has been a long standing Yukon business that makes the best chocolate cake that money can buy here in the Yukon. A dense chocolate explosion in your mouth topped with a heavy but luxurious topping. Though pricey, well worth it.

I had been to Whitehorse once before and what stood out in my memory most, other than the beauty of Whitehorse itself, was the Ham and Swiss at The Claim, and I was more than excited to share this with my boyfriend when we went up together this time. I am not a sandwich person by far, never been a... More

I'm a total coffee addict, so I'm always excited to find a new cafe. I walked in and it looked promising, good atmosphere, funky little shop, large array of chocolates.....I was also starving...so I was pleased to see they had food. The coffee I ordered was average priced so no complaints there and my panini seemed expensive, but not too... More

Thanks for reviewing our cafe. I'm glad you enjoyed the quality of your food and coffee. It is absolutely possible not to tip. One simply bypasses the tipping option on the debit machine by programming 0% tip. The cookies are handmade with real butter and are large. The quality and the resources required to make them determines the price. Hope... More
