Great local coffee joint. Wanted a reasonable cup of coffee and a quick bite of food before a long day. Central and easy to get to location. Quick service and fun Alaska feel.

Had breakfast here this am. The coffee is great. My husband had a delicious salmon bagel. Since I am vegan the cook fixed a special bagel with veggies and pesto, it was off the charts delicious. We will be back tomorrow !
