Coffee at Bean North Café
Bean North Café is more than a rustic coffee shop. They are a coffee roaster and specialize in organic fair-trade coffee. Located 20 min out of town on the way to Takhini Hot Springs and the Yukon Wildlife Preserve, it’s the perfect place to listen to the birds and enjoy the wooded surroundings while sipping fantastic coffee.
Aside from coffee, Bean North Café offers a selection of house-made soups, paninis, and pastries. Patrons can enjoy their coffee and food on the patio when the mood strikes. Also, the café hosts various events throughout the year, including cupping courses, craft fairs, and roastery tours.

Lunch at Alpine Bakery
What’s better than a sandwich at lunch made with fresh bread and a bowl of homemade soup? Alpine Bakery, known as the original ‘organic café,’ is located inside a huge log building that feels more like a chalet than a bakery. Everything is organic, and they offer many vegan and gluten-free creations. Their menu is filled with everything yummy you want in café, sweet, savoury, fresh and healthy.
The owners are very proud of their wood-fired brick oven that produces some of the most scrumptious organic pizzas and a variety of artisanal bread. The more you explore Alpine Organic Café the better it gets.

Brunch at Burnt Toast
Burnt Toast is one of the more trendy and lively brunch spots in Whitehorse. The focal point of the cafe is an Art Deco-inspired bar and historical photos. In summer, it is not uncommon to see a line of hungry people sipping Starbucks waiting for a table.
The kitchen offers unique and scrumptious dishes for breakfast like maple bangers and eggs, made with locally produced eggs and handmade sausages. Lunch is equally tempting, Arctic Char en Papillote featuring lemon herb crusted Char with veggies and blue cheese mashed potatoes. Its legendary menu keeps locals coming back year-round.
Location: 2112 2nd Avenue, Whitehorse, Yukon Y1A 1B9 Canada
