Nice clean, out of the way place to stop for a nice meal and a beverage. Specialty coffees and teas.... A pretty extensive menu and a lot of curries and chutneys. All home made and pretty good. I'm not a huge fan of exotic spices...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.
