The two RV Gypsies ate at Cafe Balzam
Takhini Hot Springs
Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada
The below comments are only
the opinion of the two RV Gypsies based on their own personal experience
at the restaurant. These comments do not make the restaurant good or
bad in general. Everyone has difference tastes and preferences in restaurants
Balzam is simple French cuisine, mostly crepes, which are not so common
in the North. At Café balzam, crepes are made using sourdough (regular)
or gluten-free batters.
90% of the dishes and desserts are completely made-in-house.
The restaurant holds a liquor licence for serving beer, cider and wine
and offer a a great variety of beverages, including many Yukon Brewery
local products. Hard liquors such as whiskey, rum or vodka are not available.
you plan to go for a soak after your dinner, please note that no alcohol
is allowed under any circumstances in the Takhini Hot Pools.
Balzam is open-year round, only closing for a couple weeks to do seasonal
maintenance in the spring and fall. If you plan to come for dinner,
please call or visit the website to make sure the restaurant will be
open, as it is NOT open 7 days a week! Do not call or email the two
RV Gypsies. They have nothing to do with this restaurant!
