Welcome to the Wildcat Cafe 2024!

Once again, the iconic, the fantastic, the rustic, the one and only Wildcat Cafe is opening its doors to Yellowknifers and visitors!

Chef Niki is very excited to welcome you back in the heart of Old Town for a fun summer cafe experience.

Vintage menus, northern twist, local suppliers, historical log cabin and sunny patio, here we come!

We are open for evening dining and brunch.

Families welcome. Well-behaved dogs welcome too (on the patio only).

And, yes, we are fully licensed (no BYO).
