“Wonderful cafe featuring fresh and inspired organic food and a daily menu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2009

We were so excited to find Larkspur. Their menu changes daily (and hourly if they run out of something) but is quite inspired, including a cold plate with Seattle's salumi, great salads, terrific soups (I salted them a bit but otherwise wonderful) and incredible desserts. Usually one entree type offering, but plenty of food to choose from! Fresh bread daily. We had lunch there (panini was terrific and a rosemary mushroom (and brown rice) soup), and dinner too, with a cold plate, black bean and cilantro soup and a baked pasta (between two people).

Morning lattes were terrific. Organic flavored syrups only (good for them!)

Had live music one night, and an open mike another nite (with real talent!) Lots of locals, with just a great vibe.

“Funky cafe-bar serving light meals and drinks in a nice setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2009

The Larkspur Cafe is a funky little cafe-bar serving freshly prepared light meals and desserts, perfect for filling a gap when you don't want a huge dinner. I had baked Brie served with sliced apple and focaccia bread, which was very tasty. The cafe has a good range of quality, international beers and wines, together with hot drinks.

The owner was very friendly and the service was excellent. The atmosphere was quite different to the other bars in town, offering a much more refined option for a drink and wouldn't have been out of place in a major European city. To add to the ambience, the evening I visited there was a live acoustic music performance by Alice Lee, which made the evening all the more enjoyable.

Highly recommended if you are in Sitka!
