This attractive restaurant in downtown Dawson is in a 1904 gold rush era building and their covered, heated, outside patio was voted "Best Patio in the Yukon" 2003. It looked like a great place for lunch - and it was.
The walls inside the main dining room hold displays which tell the fascinating story of the original Klondike Kate - or actually a few different women who went by that name.
Favorite Dish: I enjoyed the Lunch Special: mushroom & barley soup with a sandwich of roast beef, white cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato and dijonaise on a croissant. It was as good as it sounds. For dessert I couldn't resist Kate's famous Tin roof pie: their own recipe crust filled with vanilla ice cream and topped with fudge, whipped cream and peanuts. Now all I needed was a nap.
Klondike Kate's is a full service restaurant and is open from April - September, 6:30 a.m. to 11:p.m. daily.

It's the restaurant of the Downtown Hotel and it mainly serves American food, like burgers and sandwiches... either in the 65 seats indoor dining room, or outside on the patio. On the menu there are some salads and pastas, too, and a few northern specialities like arctic char, salmon and halibut. It's a no-frills place but quite good
Favorite Dish: arctic char is something one should try when up north... it's a sort of trout with a true distinctive taste... maybe because the rivers aren't polluted

This plain little chinese restaurant, located on the side of the Midnight Sun Hotel, advertised a full breakfast for only $3.95 CDN. I wondered how they could do it, when a similar breakfast across the border in Alaska would have been more than three times as much. I was skeptical, but tried it anyway, and was absolutely delighted.
Favorite Dish: I had eggs, hash browns, bacon and whole wheat toast with jam. My order was well prepared and the service was friendly and efficient. The restaurant also offers good deals on Chinese food, but I was not in town long enough to take advantage of it.

The first thing that struck me about this building was the fabulous old time architecture. On my first evening in Dawson City I wandered in off the street to look things over. From the Sourdough Saloon I heard the nostalgic refrain of Ray Charles' "Georgia on My Mind," so I went on in to listen. The performer was a female vocalist accompanied by an electronic keyboard. Soon I was sitting at the bar and chatting with a local gold miner about his most interesting profession.
The Saloon offered the same menu as the Jack London Grill (in another part of the building) so I bellied on up to the bar and ordered dinner. Excellent food, good music, and good conversation in a great setting - what more could one want?
Favorite Dish: I ordered the Pioneer Beef Burger, topped with mushrooms, bacon and cheese. At $7.95 CDN, or $6.35 US it was a bargain. The burger was big, juicy and very tasty. I'm sure Jack London would have approved.
