Like everything else at Rough and Tumble, our licensed cafe is a one-of-a-kind affair that we’ve handcrafted around our edge-of-wilderness setting.

Our café is open to the public as well as lodge guests from 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm Thursday through Tuesday during the high season (October – April). Our homemade pizzas, nachos, and baking are commonly just the tonic for hungry appetites. Then there’s our selection of craft beers, wines, cider and selection of spirits. As evening rolls around, it’s all about our in-house guests. We serve dinner – a two-course ‘meal of the day’ – from 6:00 pm. Bookings for dinner are essential.

Continental breakfast is included in your room tariff and can be taken at your leisure (as early as you like).
