I have had the great fortune to travel for business up to Whitehorse which includes a mandatory stop at PiccaPeppa at least once a week. If not more, and I always get some Meat Patties to take back to Ontario with me! Make sure if your in town to drop in and see Andrea and David and enjoy the Food!

We had the patties, plantains and jerk chicken, all were amazing!! Very low key, cool Island feel. One server plus one cook = one great meal. A must do again on our next visit to Whitehorse!!

At first glance, Pickapeppa seems hidden and small but make no mistake - this is a welcoming place that packs a culinary punch! Restaurant owner and Chef Andrea creates consistently tasty dishes inspired by her Jamaican homeland. She brings out the best in her ingredients and lets them shine in dishes like jerk chicken or pork, homemade roti or curry... More

Great little spot - curious menu with about 10 items. Everything is homemade and delicious, and the service mucho friendly. We enjoyed watching the Olympics on the TV there, while eating yummy jerk chicken, Jamaican patties, and their spicy homemade ginger beer. JUST GO!!!

This is a tiny restaurant, very casual, with the cook and one staff. The food is delicious and authentic. The flavours are just right! The portions are generous and very reasonably priced. Dinner was delicious but they didn't have any dessert. It was still very enjoyable.

This wasn't our first choice for lunch. In fact it wasn't our second because we hadn't even heard of it, or seen it in the guide books. It happened to be around the corner from Sanchez Cantina (closed on a Monday) and the Deli Meat and Sausage (closed on a Monday). But we are so glad that we found it... More

A small sit-down restaurant at the edge of the downtown area, Pickapeppa serves great Caribbean food in a comfortable, casual setting. The portion sizes are just right, and include a small salad and a nicely-spiced rice and bean mix. They do serve bottled beer, soft drinks, juice, and a wonderful homemade ginger beer (really goes well with the food... really!).... More

We had the jerk pork roti and the pork ribs. Both were fantastic. Accompanied by fresh salad and rice/bean blend. Spices were perfect, large servings, tender, delicious! I would definitely comeback to Whitehorse just for this!!

Excellent home-cooked Caribbean food in a very authentic setting. I had the goat curry and hubby had the Jerk Chicken. Both were excellent. They played some feel-good music and it almost felt like we were back in Jamaica.

This is genuine Carribean food in Whitehorse of all places. The server was happy to explain to us what everything was. We wanted to try everything, as it all sounded so unique and yummy. We were very pleased with our choices and even ordered dessert at lunch just because it sounded so good...and it was.
