Burnt Toast Cafe – Whitehorse, Canada

I figured I’d go a bit left field and post something different. The hubby and I went on our honeymoon and stopped off in a little town in Canada called Whitehorse. Whitehorse is situated north of Vancouver. The town only has about 30,000 people and the province of Yukon where Whitehorse is situated has a total of 35,000 people. That’s crazy that the rest of the province only has 5,000!

The whole reason of coming here was to try and see the Northern Lights.. unfortunately we were unsuccessful in this which was a bit of a bummer.

We did however get to roam the town of Whitehorse and we got to try lunch at one of their cafes.

Burnt Toast cafe is situated on the main road within the town. Unlike the name suggests, it doesn’t serve burnt toast!


We had a lovely relaxing lunch here. I ordered a mexican toasted sandwich which had cheese, avocado, salsa, and jalepenos in it with a side of chips, and the hubby ordered a deathly looking pulled pork mexican poutine!


If you haven’t tried poutine before, you need to try it! It usually consists of chips, smothered in gravy and cheese curds. However, there are certain places that like to change it up a bit.


I’d have to say the toasted sandwich was a bit average, it was something I probably could have made at home. Also the chips I’ve found in Canada are more dryer and never salted.

The poutine was amazingly fatty but so good!

If you ever get the chance to go Whitehorse you should go check it out! Even though it is a pretty small town, the people there are lovely and it just seems so relaxing. I would love to go back just to try and see the Northern lights again… maybe in a few years 🙂
