Fantastic food, service and location is very scenic. Homemade cookies, fresh baked bread and speciality coffees along with kombucha and edible flowers is just a glimpse into their unique menu. I’m so looking forward to returning.

Restaurant situated in an old house and space is limited. Very nice decor. Limited menu but everything was tasty and flavourful.... I recommend this place.

Had the chance to enjoy brunch one day with a good friend while I was in town. Terrific food. Had their biscuit sandwich and it was huge! Hope to go back and try the rest of their food sometime...

I have fallen in love with this restaurant. It is on a hillside overlooking the mountains and water, making it the perfect Alaskan experience. It's artfully decorated and the food is delicious with beautiful presentation. I ordered the half-order of biscuits and gravy for brunch...More
