Alchemy Cafe

Alchemy Cafe is run by husband and wife team Sofia & Florian, who wish to bring to the small community of Dawson a new way of relating to food and each other by supporting local food, fair trade organic coffee, sustainable farming practices, creativity and a sense of community that values good conversations, sharing of stories and information. Alchemy Cafe is one of the only establishments in Dawson that does not serve alcohol, which makes it child & youth friendly. Alchemy cafe takes into consideration people with food allergies who find it hard to eat out when all that is on offer is burgers & fries. We wish to give people an alternative to the usual north american fair and promote healthy

We kept going back to Alchemy because the food and coffee were so great, and the staff is so friendly. This is a casual café (you order at the till) with a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere.

We had a good cappuccino a few times during our stay in Dawson City. The cafe also provides organic meals and is popular by the younger people of Dawson.

Ah yes, $6 dollars is a lot but it does take 3 to 4 oranges to make a glass of juice - sugar added, no water added. In fact we have decided to take the silly South-African-orange-juice off our menu and replace it with Canadian-apple-ginger...More

I didn't expect to find such delicious food in a place as remote as Dawson City. The food was scrumptious and perfectly proportioned. Heated seats complete the menu very well on a cold wet day. Service was quick and friendly. Better food than most city...More

Fresh organic hippie utopia with cooks who know what they are doing when it comes to delicious healthy food. Not cheap but nothing is in this town. Great ambiance. A fave of mine.

Hahaha!! I guess it is a compliment to be called a "hippie" even though I like to think about what we dot as plain common sense food :-) Thank you for your food back!
