    Black Heart Cafe

    This great cafe was exactly what the town needed and has rapidly become Iqaluit's most popular gathering place. There's excellent coffee from the Equator roastery in Ottawa, artisan teas, kombucha, great cakes, plus a cracking selection of lunchtime sandwiches (reuben, Arctic char club, croque monsieur), a kiddie corner, book exchange and Inuit art on the walls.

    Frob Kitchen

    The perpetually popular upmarket restaurant at the Frobisher Inn serves the likes of Arctic char wraps, pad Thai and musk-ox burgers at lunchtime. Dinner is equally globe-spanning, but more refined: steak tartare, fresh Vietnamese spring rolls, prime ribs and bison steak. Try to get a window seat.
