AS LOCAL AS WE CAN !
Café balzam attaches particular importance on featuring as many local products as possible. This approach allows us to offer fresh and tasty products, which are traceable, and which support our Yukon farmers.
Although it can be a challenge in the Great North, most of our partners practice organic and sustainable agriculture across the territory.
For us, it is far more than just an opportunity to avoid buying food shipped over long distances : It is a real chance to highlight the diversity of local flavours, and to make sure they are always fresh and of the best quality.

TRACKING THE TINY TREASURES
Our locally-focused menu features lots of authentic boreal flavours that reveal themselves through unique homemade preparations. These are traditionally based on northern products such as wild berries and mushrooms, spruce tips, wild roses, and even dandelions !
We are supportive of our community and we are thrilled to say that all of our wild products are sustainably hand-harvested by locals, hiking year-round with passion and expertise through their beloved northern backyard.
In the summertime, you might be surprised to find out that the kitchen staff also grow their own fresh herbs and flowers in the charming little greenhouse situated on the restaurant's deck, just beside the pool !
