The food is good, the coffee is good and the service is even better! I usually get the eggs benedict, but my friend got a Denver omelette (sp?) last Saturday. I am going to try it next time - it was PACKED with goodies!

2nd time visiting and very happy when I can get reindeer sausage in my omelette. They were very happy to swap potatoes for fruit and they had whole wheat toast. Great food and atmosphere can't wait to go again

Our family was in Alaska for our summer vacation. Our 10 year old son wanted "breakfast for dinner" for his birthday meal. A quick search of Google and Trip Advisor turned up IHOP, Denny's and Kava's. We decided to go local! So glad we did!...More

Kava House doesn't look like much from the outside (or even once you're inside), but you can't judge a book by its cover! This diner is an Anchorage institution, and a favorite of the locals. Their normal breakfast food is delicious, portions are generous, coffee...More
