No reservations (don't believe them when they say they will give you a reservation for a large group). We were told that morning that they would have a table set up for our group of 15 for 5:30 pm. Thank goodness two of us shows up a 1/2 hour early b/c the afternoon staff was clueless. Service was awful, awful,... More

Went in to have some soup and couldn't resist trying the salmon chowder. It was different VERY thick with lots of vegies like carrots but not a lot of salmon. Wasn't bad wasn't good just different and VERY Filling.

Great little place that you might drive right past if you did not know it was there. The staff is super friendly and the food is good. The Salmon Chowder was amazing, and the Reuben was just right! I saw several things on the menu that I will need to go back and try.......maybe tomorrow! :)

I like cafes with character and if I lived in Sitka I would frequent the Larkspur. It shares a house with Rave Radio, the local station and though there is a certain randomness to it all, the coffee flows, there are some amazing baked goods-- the chocolate gluten free cheese cake was divine-- hearty soups, well stuffed burritos, salads and...

This funky little café is right down on the tip of Sitka proper, where the bay meets Sitka Channel, facing Japonski Island. Apparently the inside of an old cable house, it's all wood and mismatched tables, with a coffee bar counter, local and interesting other beers on tap, and wine by the glass. Their specials are creative, and all the... More

This was one of the only places open on the Friday night that we got to Sitka. Many places had closed for the season. There was live music inside and no room for us to sit so we ended up sitting outside on the front porch. Would have been fine except that the wind came up and all of us... More

A quaint little bistro type place with limited seating but great food. There was live music the night we were there and a decent selection of semi local and craft beers. The staff was great as was the food. I'll be back the next time I'm in Sitka.

Food is varied and everything we had in two visits was great. The Cubano and the Bon mi tasted fresh we served with nice greens. The panini was huge with chunks of turkey not slices. A great find. Music is great also.

Really great food. I'm not especially a fan of sandwiches, but the panini was fantastic.. The place looked a bit quirky, but the owner(?) did a great job helping my sister figure out what foods she could have (with her dairy allergy). We were here on a cruise stop, but most there seemed to be locals as it is a... More
