Buckshot Betty's in Beaver Creek, Yukon

Buckshot Betty's sits directly on the Alaska Highway and is just down from the RV park so you literally can't miss it.

Our accommodations wouldn't let us cook so Hubby and I went to Buckshot Betty's and had a great breakfast.  For $11.95 (Canadian) the ham and cheese omelette came with a generous pile of chunked hashbrown potatoes. These were hand cut and cooked fresh. Salt, pepper and other seasonings added the right amount of seasoning. Drinks were simple. Help yourself to coffee or cold water from the set up in the corner. Add canned milk or a splash of hazelnut flavoring for no extra charge.


Cans of ginger ale and Coke and Pepsi products are available from the drink cooler along with cranberry, Apple and other bottled juices. Energy drinks are also available. As with most restaurants in this part of the country, drinks are not served with ice. Everything else is table service at Buckshot Betty's.
