Café Daughter is a 2023 Canadian drama film, directed by Shelley Niro. Adapted from Kenneth T. Williams's stage play of the same name, which was itself a fictionalized account of the life of Canadian physician and senator Lillian Dyck, the film stars Violah Beauvais as Yvette Wong, a young girl of mixed Cree and Chinese Canadian ancestry growing up in Saskatchewan in the 1960s, who faces challenges after the death of her mother but remains focused on her goal of attending medical school to become a doctor.

Yvette begins to explore and embrace her Cree identity when she befriends Maggie Wolf, a part Mi'kmaq girl who encourages Yvette to be proud of her ancestry. The cast also includes Star Slade, Tom Lim, Sera-Lys McArthur, Evan Lau, Billy Merasty and Demaris Moon Walker.
