Had a quick lunch once we got back into town. Not bad. a bit greasy but often a common occurrence in the North. Average meal. Better places to go in town! If you need to eat, stop! Merci.

This is a good spot for lunch. Good homemade soups. Lots of local artwork on the walls. Nightly dinner specials

Stopped here for lunch on a cool day. Had buffalo chicken & blue cheese soup. Excellent and tasty. Americano coffee was well made & tasted great. My husband had an apple fritter that I could not resist - very good. Very friendly, service was prompt & they happily accommodated our requests.

I had the chance to eat here on several occasions and the food never disappointed. The chicken quesadilla was my favorite for lunch.

We enjoyed our daily visits for coffee and a cookie. It's the only cafe open in winter. All the staff were super sweet and full of smiles. Had some lovely chats with locals.

So happy that there is a coffee shop in town. I really like their non-dairy smoothies. There is great selection of soups and sandwiches.

Run by a very friendly lady accompanied by two beautiful Irish Labs! Store seemed to have a lot of "nik-naks" made in China but nothing made locally; not that we had noticed anyway. We did not see or notice a restaurant when we entered. The whole block that the store is in should be demolished and the store should move... More

This place is the hidden gem in Inuvik. It is the breakfast/lunch place in Inuvik. Great coffees, teas, muffins, cookies and sandwiches. The sandwiches and muffins are fresh and made daily. I always had an espresso and a cappuccino to go. Esther is amazing. Love this place!!!
