This has a great local vibe but also serves up the best cappuccinos and coffees. They are also famous for their chocolate cakes, desserts and catering. Sit in, or take to go. They also feature local artisan products.

This is a small town. You quickly get to know where to find things that really are important to you. I have been here several times when someone else is paying, which suite me fine as I find the food expensive and not particularly out of the ordinary. The one thing I will come for myself, maybe twice a year,... More

A great place to grab a sweet snack or a non-sweet snack. Everything is very fresh and flavorful. However, their sweet items are popular so you need to go early in the day to have a full choice. A popular place for lunch, as there is a choice of homemade soups, which are delicious.

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.
