Yellowknife’s Cliff Café, the new home of Museum Café’s former operator inside the legislature, has delayed opening until later in July.
Chris Zouboules had initially hoped to open in the legislature on July 3, having won the contract to replace Javaroma in the building’s café space.
However, on Tuesday the venue remained empty and Zouboules is still operating Museum Café at the neighbouring Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre.
“I just wasn’t able to get all the right stuff put into place for it to be open, and I’ve just been really busy with the museum still,” Zouboules told Cabin Radio.
A date for the new location to open is still uncertain.
“I haven’t got that one down quite yet,” said Zouboules. “I can’t say. It should be open before the end of the month.”

Correction – July 5 2018, 14:37 MT. This article has been reworded slightly to make clear the Museum Café is owned by the Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre and operated by Chris Zouboules. The café will remain, with the same name, when Cliff Café opens.
