The Point is a destination. It is an Art Cafe. It's an art gallery, coffee and tea shop and they serve lunch. All lunches are homemade from scratch, daily. Incredible waterfront views. See bald eagles, harbor seals, and occasionally even whales appear. Watch float planes take off and land close by as ships and fishing boats cruise the busy harbor. Free Wifi for customers. Open all week.

Surprising art and coffee shop

Quaint coffee and sandwich shop overlooking the tongass narrows. Menu changes daily but you can't go wrong with the quiche or the home made cookies.

As we approached Ketchikan we were greeted by beautiful rainbow. At first we thought it was going to be a rainy day - what a nice surprise. A nice greeting to the salmon capital.

They are a soup and sandwich place. The place sits on the water. Great place to watch the bird life, boat traffic and float planes. They make some awesome home made soups. They have an large collection of art for sale from local artist.

I was in Ketchikan for a wedding and met some of the bridal party at The Point for lunch. I found it to be bright, airy and welcoming. They have various forms of artwork done by local artists displayed tastefully and that adds to the atmosphere and charm. There was live music softly playing further adding to the welcoming, relaxing... More

A beautiful spot a ways out of Ketchikan. Well worth a visit and to walk through the local forests. Unfortunately no bears around!

Ketchikan, AK. was one of my favorite stops on our cruise. The sunset is unbelievable when leaving at The Point. Very romantic. Ketchikan is a wonderful little village. Full of great little shops and restaurants....bars etc. You will see a real Alaskan town and how it is dependent on tourism. Very friendly local people. 2013

The Point is about a mile north of downtown Ketchikan. You have to call them and the owner, Terry, will come pick you up in their shuttle van. Seems a bit inconvenient but totally worth the effort! Great shop with beautiful artwork and stained glass hangings done by Terry, a nice little yarn shop, and a yummy cafe with the... More

Check this place out if you are interested to photo shoot the bald eagles. This cafe is not only a charming village cafe where you meet the friendly locals having coffee but you can also get a lovely clear view of the bald eagles teaching their young to dive in the sea for food. When we were there a flock... More

We only found this place because it had been recommended, a bit "tucked away" but very busy once we found it. Fun menu and great coffee. We enjoyed the artwork, bead work and were charmed by the musicians playing at lunchtime. The view was amazing, altogether a charming experience.
