This is a popular little out of the way place that does a good job on bakery items, soups and sandwiches, and desserts. They seem to cater to the vegan/health nut crowd, of which I consider myself a proud member. We tried the pizza on...More

We went because it was highly reviewed on the internet. We all purchased several treats for our road trip to Denali. We did not enjoy a single item.

We had a wonderful breakfast. Food was homemade and local. I heard the coffee drinks were good as well. Quiche was tall and fluffy and yummy! Just be aware that buses like to stop here and then it takes a while.More

Three of us stopped in for lunch, all had the celery soup. One was deemed bland, lots of salt and pepper added. The other two took a while to get, but a little salt or pepper was all we needed. The prices are way reasonable...More
