The Yellow Canoe Cafe is a friendly restaurant in Merrickville Ontario that specializes in tasty lunches and desserts. All the food is made fresh in our kitchen, using local ingredients wherever possible.
Please note that we are currently closed while we do a major renovation to our kitchen. We hope to be back in operation by Saturday January 18th (if not before).
Our Robbie Burns Dinner night is set for January 25th. Done right with haggis, piping, poetry, and more. Reservations are required, and we're filling up very fast.
We offer a broad range of lunch choices including fresh, made to order sandwiches, daily soups, a hot frittata special, and fresh baked savoury scones. Our desserts include Susan's famous Apple Pie and Date Squares, plus Carrot Cake, Chocolate Raspberry Coffee Cake, Raisin Scones (served with jam & whipped cream), plus fresh baked goods and seasonal specials.
Our beverage choices include Ontario VQA wines, draft & bottled beer, and sangria, a wide choice of teas, coffee, and soft drinks & juices.
Our goal is to deliver food that satisfies both the body and the soul, in a friendly, relaxed environment, either in our cozy dining room or on our shaded patio overlooks the Rideau Canal and Merrickville Locks.
Our third annual Robbie Burns Dinner night is set for January 25th. Done right with haggis, piping, poetry, and more. Reservations are required, and we're filling up very fast.
We're still planning future special events.
Our covered patio is a great place to extend the summer. Even on days with gentle rain you can sit outside and enjoy a meal and listen to the rain on the tin roof. On sunny fall days there's a great mix of sun and shade.
Our Garden Patio is a great place to enjoy lunch, afternoon tea & dessert, or a drink with a cheese and fruit plate. Our covered section provides nice shade on sunny days and also means you don't have to be chased inside by a bit of rain.
We're open every day:
