What is one thing you would like people to know about your business?
Déjà Vu Cafe is has been locally owned and operated for 11years. Brandon moved to Moose Jaw in 1997 while employed with Shaw Cable Systems. He was employed with them for 17 years and decided to go back to his roots and open up a restaurant! He found an opportunity with Deja Vu Cafe and thought his background in sales and customer service would be a great fit! Brandon’s favourite saying “Just Wing It!”
Tammy his wife, also brings over 20 + years of experience in the restaurant industry and Evelyn (Tammy’s Mom) brought over 40 years of experience to the businesses. Evelyn is now retired and is enjoying her life.
Brandon and Tammy must have the secret to success because they have been featured on National and Provincial Television. Their success also gave the opportunity to expand to a larger location formally the Dutch Bakery.
What made you want to get into business here?
As a child, my family owned and operated their own restaurants. We saw an opportunity to open up our own here in Moose Jaw.
What’s your favourite part about owning or managing the business?
Making my rules and guidelines with my establishment rather than being told how to run the business. Hands-on with customers and level of service they receive plus being creative with the menu.

Sponsor and support, Miller’s Baseball, Moose Jaw Warriors Triple-A and WHL, Select and Elks Football, Dance Festival & Carnival, Band Festival, Soccer leagues, Moose Jaw Little League all within the community. We support many other local community organizations.
