We've been sitting at our table for half an hour and still don't have our drinks let alone our food. I keep seeing the waitress going to text on her phone behind the counter. We reminded her of our drinks and she just walked right by us. Horrible service!!!

Great locally raised food wrapped in crepes! Also the only place in Whitehorse where we can get such local food. Big up for the farmers!

Very nice food, Crepes are the way to enjoy a hamburger. The fries here are to die for (WOW) are they every good. I have travelled a lot and their fries are the best, just like old time chips from England but way better. Pommes Dauphines are very nice but let them cool a bit or risk burning the top... More

After a soak in the hot springs, what could be better than a delicious, gourmet meal with local ingredients? The only downside is that they don't open until 4 PM. We loved the salad special, with unique local, organic vegetables. I loved my mushroom crepe and my husband's was also delicious. Both indoor and outdoor dining is available, next to... More

Delicious, creative French crepes (both main course and dessert crepes) using many local ingredients are presented in a lovely natural environment, overlooking the Takhini Hot Springs. Ask for an outside table!

If you look at my other reviews, you'll notice that I mostly review things I love. I believe in telling the business if something's wrong and telling everyone about what's good, but we were having a special dinner out for father's day during our vacation, so I didn't want to deal with it, and there was clearly a language barrier....

We had gone once before and it was no good (see previous review), but after waiting over a year we decided to try it again.... The service was awful, and I mean really awful. It was not busy and it still took 20 min to get our drinks (2 bottles of beer) after we ordered them. The menu leaves a... More

We went for an early dinner after a Saturday afternoon soak. Our friendly server seated us by the window, where we could see the mountains in the distance. There were a few other tables but the place wasn't packed; the music and the atmosphere were pleasant and relaxed. Our server was attentive and answered all of our questions. We ordered... More
