The Café

The Synergy between Food, Music and Nomadic Life.

It all started in 2000 when Tailgate Café was born to rather humble and inauspicious beginning. Stranded on the side of the Trans-Canada Highway somewhere between Thunderbay and Sudbury in the North West side of Ontario. The unpretentious charpoy underneath cedars and leafless aspens became the scene for a sitting of well seasoned moose hunters, still wearing their orange outfits, the men enjoyed yet another heart warming meal dished out by the camp’s pan handler, Mihály simply set-up his kitchen on the tailgate of Uncle Reggie’s Dodge pick-up truck—the rest is history..


Pop-up Crêperie

Our Pop-up Crêperie is no glamour new-age restaurant nor a typical fast food hamburger eatery with flashing neon lights, in fact “whenever, wherever” Tailgate Café’s Crêpe cart is located, it casts a nostalgic reminiscence of typical Parisian sidewalk crêpe stand seen populating‎ Boulevard Saint-Germaine in Paris, France. This romantic environment allows you to feel more connected and open to the culture around you, accentuating the feeling of freedom and friendships. Street crêpes is perfect for travellers, commuters, partygoers and Nomads alike, in the early mornings and late afternoons, crêpes are freshly cooked, filled and wrapped In paper cones, making them a unique fast food treat..

All the ingredients Mihály uses are sourced daily from local growers and farmer markets and is prepared using home-made, stone–ground spice mixtures, so they are deliciously pungent and as natural as your beckoning taste buds can imagine but mmmm, just wait until you taste the delights of traditional French Crêpes, Sweet Jacket Potatoes as well as a few other exotic dishes from friends that may visit Tailgate Café from around the world, come and visit us whenever you feel the spirit of travel and adventure. We’ll be posting locations on our homepage once available..
