This cafe has friendly staff with a great selection of food for every diet. If you're vegetarian, it's not a problem at all. The food it's very reasonable priced, especially for the quality and the ingredients. It's a great place to sip a coffee and get some work done as well.

I go here every so often and I always enjoy whatever I order. Their egg and sausage biscuit is probably my favorite and it's not even expensive, especially compared to other downtown food places. The whole vibe of the place is very relaxed as well. They have a bunch of paintings and pictures from local artists.

My family and I visited Alaska this summer. We spent two non-consecutive days in Anchorage. On the morning of the first day, we went to a restaurant across the street from our hotel for breakfast but the line was too long so my wife and I walked down the street and eventually came across this café. We each had the... More

Love their pastries and goodies. Taste completely home-made (I think they're made there). Coffee is good too. Cozy atmosphere.

Try the Cuban sandwich - very much enjoyed by my friend! Offered a choice or fries or baby carrots as a side, a first for me, and great healthy choice. Returned on second day, service was disappointing (No deviation from breakfast menu, even though nobody else was in cafe at the time ... I did eventually get bacon and egg... More

saw the restaurant across from the museum we visited & immediately attracted by their display of cookies/desserts on the bar along with the sidewalk specials advertised. Had a delicious very hearty bean/ham/veggie soup with a BLT on toasted grain bread. Both were delicious. Daughter had a chicken combo sandwich, very filling that she had to take 1/2 home for later...

I tried a vegetarian melt sandwich (avocado melt) which was delicious. However, a half sandwich for $9.50 seems a bit pricey to me. My son had a yummy blueberry muffin. The coffee was excellent. I'd go back here again for sure despite the pricey sandwich. We also tried an 'everything' cookie which was very good!

Enjoyed a late breakfast with my family. Cute place with good food. Sammy breakfast is good, all recently cooked and not too greasy. The kids had a grilled cheese sandwich every 2 kids and was enough. Coffee was recently brewed and tasted great. The place had personality and the service was good.
