Enjoyed the curry's (had the mixed platter and the winter vegetable curry was exceptional). Returned for the Chai Pancakes for breakfast - also a hit. Took home the Cardamom and Chocolate Chip cookies and also tasted the Oatmeal Raisin, both very good.

We only ate here once and were really happy with the menu options, and the food we chose was delicious. The place is eclectic and I love the "market" idea. It smells of curry when you walk in. Comfy tables and chairs, couches by the fireplace. Big, bright windows. Friendly staff.

The food here is excellent, freshly made and reasonably priced. It also has some locally made handicrafts for sale. Very relaxing, wonderful food- a real gem.

We frequently stop in to the Mad Dog to pick up frozen samosas and other lovely dishes to heat up at home. We've never had a speedy or very professional experience at the till, but the food is worth that little frustration.

The Mad Day Cafe is a wonderful little cafe/dinner in Dead Mans Flats. They see a to have a bit of an Indian Curry thing going on, but that's a good thing. Just stopped for coffee and a quick lunchtime bite. Would love to return for an early dinner (close at 7pm), but they are closed on Monday and Tuesday.... More

This place is far more than a simple eatery. They serve, make and market all sorts of fussion foods mostly East Indian like and free of nasties like artificial preservatives and flavors. On short notice they were able to put together a custom plate for my partner which avoided the various nuts, nightshades, grains and dairy foods she is trying... More

There are 2 choices of places to eat. This is an Indian food restaurant and market. We had the dinner special which includes a self serve bar with different dishes and then they bring out several different meat dishes. It is good food if you like Indian food and like it spicy. They also have take out options, sandwiches and... More

Offering daily curry specials and samosas, along with homemade soup, sandwiches, other non-curry grab and go favorites, great locally roasted specialty coffees and organic teas, craft beer and regional wines, we hope you find our little cafe & market a great place to stop for a quick snack when passing by, a comfortable meal when meeting friends or family, or the place to go to buy all your favorite Mad Dog Products for your pantry or freezer. Here we now have our booking office and meeting place for our dogsled clients, a casual counter-service cafe with the food that we have become best known for at our markets, and a larger retail area interspersed filled with our own Mad Dog Quality Products and other local market favorites.
