Nice selection of soup and sandwich lunch items. Good quality food and efficient service. Ideal quick stop while enjoying Haida Cultural Center, but probably not worth driving out of your way to get to it otherwise.

We went here for lunch because we needed to eat before we went to the museum. First off there are no menu's just a chalk board with the meals of the day. That sounded good to me as they would change the menu every day...More

Good coffee, very clean location - it is part of the Museum building. Daily specials are offered for light lunches.

While this is a cafeteria, the choice of food is good, and the preparation excellent. I had a huge salad with a piece of salmon. My wife had a porchetta sandwich. Both delicious. Their Elephant Cage Coffee is "ethically sourced; locally operated."

One goes to the Haida Cultural Centre for reasons other than eating, but after touring the centre and have a lunch at Kay's we went back again a few days later, just for lunch. The KFC sandwich is to die for!
