Café
“Yellowknife's longstanding coffee shop. I prefer the newer Fat Fox and Birchwood, but Javaroma has a more classic menu with good sandwiches, basic brunch etc. Also a convenient second location at the airport if you need a sandwich or baked goods to go.”

“Don't let the plain outside fool you-this place has the best and up to date winter gear! If you're looking for a Canada Goose parka or winter boots or any winter gear...this place has it all! This is where we buy all of our winter gear-no need to shop down South when we have this store. ”

“Just a few minutes' walk from our Airbnb, the Gallery of the Midnight Sun is the NWT's largest gallery and gift shop offering fine arts and crafts from across the North.
