An Explorer's Guide to Dawson City, Yukon
Posted on April 26, 2020
Food security and eating local are much more common topics of conversation now, during the COVID-19 pandemic shutdowns. It's quite amazing what the Yukon was able to put together in that way over a century ago. The Arcade Cafe in Dawson showed what they could get from "Yukon Farm, Forest or Stream" for their "All-Yukon Menu," in the Dawson Daily News of August 18, 1919.
The Arcade Cafe advertised themselve as the "Most famous restaurant of the Land of the Midnight Sun - Mecca of the Tourist and Home of the Sourdough - Headquarters of the All-Yukon Dinner, the meal that keeps the money at home, and proves that Yukon is in the great food producing belt of the continent."
