This catering is not as it seems. The pies you bought for the last five years you can get the same at Food land for 2.99 a pie. The home-made jam comes from a big tub of strawberry jam. your cream base soup comes from a bucket. Your roast beef dinner is actually blade roast... Everything is pre frozen or... More

A great place to eat but it is now closed. As a long time customer it was sad to see them close because there was not really much better homemade cooking in Mattawa other than drapers in our minds. Especially from Mary who would go out of her way to make you feel welcomed at Drapers especially the soups.

This is the second time for me and multiple for the husband. Every fishing trip up in Canada he goes. They have fresh soup, sandwiches, Mac n cheese and oh those butter tarts! If you're up there, gotta stop!

We didn't go to the restaurant, but the attached Bakery became a must stop on a number of occassions during our recent trip to the Mattawa area. What a surprise to come across wonderful raisin and pecan buttertarts in this neck of the woods. We would make a special trip into town to get tarts to have by our campfire... More
