Beef Wellington at the Warm Puppy Cafe?

This month, long-time restaurateur Josef Keller (formerly of Josef’s Restaurant at the La Rose Hotel) will be doing a pop-up dinner at the Snoopy’s Home Ice cafe.


Keller took over the kitchen of the much-loved eatery six months ago, revamping the menu and promoting fresher fare including grilled salmon, beef stew with polenta and spaetzli (don’t worry, there are still nachos and hot dogs, too).

He’ll be flexing his white-tablecloth skills during a one-night-only 3-course dinner on Friday, March 11. The prix fixe menu includes prawns in garlic and herb sauce, creme of asparagus soup, sea bass in lobsters sauce, beef Wellington, osso bucco and chocolate torte, among other dishes.

Space is limited to 60 guests and is expected to sell out. To reserve your place, call 546-7147 ext. 219 for details. Limited wine lists and BYO wine/$10 corkage. Seatings begin at 6p.m.

  1. Stick with what you are doing, or find another and web marketing strategy to exchange the free ad strategy.
    The readers of the blog are obviously considering the overall field of expert knowledge with the blog.

    new’ response.

  2. Admiring the commitment you put into your website and in depth information you present.

    rehashed material. Excellent read! I’ve saved your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.

  5. I do agree ith all of the ideas you have offered in your post.
    They are really convincing aand will definitely work. Still, the posts are
    too short for beginners. May just you please
    lengthen them a bit from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.

  6. Bleh, ever since they changed the menu and stopped caring about the customers, it has been awful. Tried the fries last weekend and took them back because I thought something was wrong with them. Turns out, they aren’t cooked in a fryer. They tasted like soggy cardboard. They don’t care about locals. The only time they try and make food like they used to is during the senior hockey tournament. For the rest of the year it is better to eat somewhere else. It is a shame 2 or 3 years ago my children and I were there almost every weekend night, now they don’t even sell hot chocolate at night.

    So sad, if they just treated it like a simple cafe/grill they would make a killing. It shows that poor management really can ruin a successful enterprise.

  7. The Warm Puppy has been ruined by the recent changes. Please note that other than this one meal the Warm Puppy no longer serves skaters in the evenings when there is public skating. They are constantly closing early and turning away customers. While this chef may be able to offer a 3 course meal, why can’t they serve chicken strips hamburgers, and fries anymore? This used to be a great place to take the kids. Now it is just a disappointment as the new menu seems to be targeted for the retirement crowd rather than the kids and teens who actually visit the cafe. How many kids want grilled salmon? Such a waste. Charles Schultz would be ashamed at what his Warm Puppy has turned into.

    1. I was there a few months back and what a disappointment. I had three hungry kids with me. We ordered fries, chicken strips and pizza. After waiting 45 minutes I asked for a refund as the toddler in the group could not wait any longer. We received our order shortly after that (waited one hour). The food was not edible, it tasted horribly and even hungry kids refused to eat it. We went home to eat after throwing the food in the trash. I hate wasting food, but it was horribly! We miss the old Café, I loved taking my daughter for chicken strips and fries.

      1. We had a terribly long wait for french fries the last time we were there in December. We must have waited 30 minutes for three orders of fries and a drink.

        1. The wait is because they don’t fry the fries. They bake them in some easy bake oven machine in the back. I watched them last time we were there. I will never get fries from them again. They are barely warm and soggy. Not crisp like real fries. I will go to In&Out next time I want fries after skating with my son.
