We discovered this adorable coffee shop while we were out walking the first day. We made sure to visit again before we left Fairbanks. You can see why the locals visit with its lovely menu and quirky furnishings. Look for it!

Truly an old fashion styled coffee house. With a stage and tables and chairs around. The place is small and is more of a neighborhood type place where everyone knows everyone. I thought it average for coffee but good for the vibe!

After three years I finally made it back to Fairbanks. While bumming around town I decided to revisit McCafferty's. The service was as friendly as on prior visits and the cappuccino was as good as I remember. Definitely recommend!

Just the place for a drop-in coffee, tea or a hot chocolate. Friendly, warm, appreciative and helpful staff, in a cosy environment.

Sit back, enjoy the coffee and/or a cup of soup with a newspaper, book or smart-phone. A diverse place to get to know your neighbors or fellow travelers. We need more of these kind of “retreats” from the daily hassles.

In 2012 I visited Fairbanks for the first time and found this little coffee shop. I enjoyed it so much that I searched it out on my second visit in 2016. The staff are warm and friendly and the atmosphere is laid back and welcoming....More
