Metropolitan Moose Beanery & Cafe
Located Downtown Kakabeka Falls right smack dab in the middle is a log cabin restaurant that has become a destination, the Metropolitan Moose Beanery & Cafe (The Moose), listed as "One of Canada’s Favorite Bakeshops’’ by Cottage Life Magazine 2007.
"We like to think we are just a little bit different," said Julia Miles, who with her husband Steve, owns and operates The Moose.
The Moose’s menu features items such as chicken gyros wraps, a roasted red-pepper panini, Greek salad, and soups such as unstuffed green pepper. The menu does have vegetarian and gluten-free options, too.
The aroma of fresh-baked breads greets customers the moment they step inside The Moose. Original artisan-style breads are baked in-store daily using specialty recipes created by Julia. Their sourdough bread has a particularly fascinating history – they use a 100-year old sourdough starter that originated in Grand Portage.

Locally or Family-Owned Business Notes
Owners Julia & Steve Miles, both grew up in European Homes where good food was not option, the kitchens in both homes were always bustling and the smell of homemade goodness was wafting down the street. We both grew up making perogies, homemade bread & barrels of homemade wine! Today we have passed on the tradition to our Niece & Nephew - Jordan & Lauren, you can find the four of us daily at the Moose creating something Yummy and out of the ordinary for your culinary delight.
We like to say "Chefs need to be trained, Cooks are born!"
