They had dairy free lattes which is a must. They also had gluten free donuts which can be hard to find in AK.

Made a special trip due to the good reviews but they had closed early. The staff kept thier backs turned and had switched over the closed sign even though the door said 4pm. Very disappointed for sure.

Good pastries, soup and sandwiches. Great view of Berth 2 and 3. WiFi available. Good place for people watching but can be crowded.

I didn't have coffee here, only the cinnamon crunch muffin, and it was tasty. My friends had other pastries and we're pleased with their food. It gets very crowded very fast in here, so it's probably best to grab your food and go.

We were glad to find this coffee shop which served breakfast. In addition to the delicious bagel sandwiches, they also had oatmeal to warm you up. It was crowded when we got there but they handled it well. We enjoyed this place very much.

They don't need standards like donuts, they serve homemade delights from their open kitchen so you can watch. The selection varies depending on the chefs' moods. Never had a bad item! You can also get breakfast and lunch and... More
