Déja Vu Café Is Worth The Drive

couple of times a year we trek to Moose Jaw and enjoy the day at the spa and try new eating establishments. A couple of summer's ago we stumbled onto this little café called Déja Vu
. Unbeknown to me it was featured on You Gotta Eat Here
Déja Vu specialise in chicken and ribs, and they do it well. The chicken has a light crispy batter and is bursting with flavor. The sweet potatoes fries are outstanding, even my daughter, who detests anything made with sweet potatoes prefers them over the "normal" fries. The portion sizes are so large that the a single plate of chicken fingers, fed two people and still had leftovers.
The chicken comes with the choice of dipping sauces and they have over 100 flavors and the sauces are some of the best I have ever encountered. We are enamored with Island Mist, Mango Tango, Dilly Delight and Garlic Parmesan flavors.
The coleslaw is some of the best I have ever had. It is creamy, light, with just a hint of sweetness and lots of crunch.
Anyone who has been around me knows I LOVE pickles but I have never understood the appeal of a deep fried pickle. To me, it is an unappealing, unappetizing soggy, greasy hot pickle. However, I tried some of Déja Vu's deep fried pickle chips and these things should be renamed "the little golden circles of goodness". Even reheated they were still crunchy and amazing.
The café boasts to having over 80 home style milkshake flavors. For a company that touts they use "100% Natural Chicken. No Pump/No Soy", it is shocking that they would use an artificial syrup. It would have been more pleasing to the palette if they focused on only three or four kinds of milkshakes and used fresh ingredients. Instead their milkshakes taste like chemicals in a cup and was not enjoyable after a fantastic meal.
We tried their deep fried cheesecake and deep fried bananas. They are wrapped in a heavy pancake batter that turns the dessert into a rock like substance with a soft centre. Not one person at our table could find a positive thing to say about them. However, they do get marginally better if they sit for a couple of hours.
Déja Vu Café has the most incredible food I have ever sampled at extremely reasonable prices. The "little golden circles of goodness" themselves are worth the drive. You may want to skip dessert though.
