We love summer in Hope, because the Discovery is open, and the food is delish! The pies of course are the best you will ever eat. But breakfast and the soup,sandwiches and actually everything is great. So grateful for such a first rate cafe tucked away in our favorite little town. A. Watson

Friendly, welcoming roadside cafe with the most amazing grilled cheese sandwich I ever ate. It came with 3 types of cheese with caramelized onions, cherry compote spread on sourdough toasted grilled bread. It was so good I had to call back and find out what type of cheese they used. Also my husband had the grilled meatloaf sandwich and raved... More

Talk about a pleasant surprise. Stumbled onto this little cafe purely by accident and was I ever so glad that we did. This is obviously a local favorite and I can see why. First off I loved that we were treated to the best of Van Morrison from the minute we came in the door. Secondly, I had the best... More

We stopped at the café on the way to our rafting trip. We were all very pleased. They offered a few beers on tap, but more importantly they may have the best peach pie I've ever tasted. For being in the middle of nowhere, they were very busy but all of the staff was extremely helpful. We didn't stay long... More

There's not a lot of options in Hope, but this is a good place to grab a bite to eat, especially if you're recreating nearby or camping in the area. It's the only sit-down place in town open for breakfast. There's plenty of choices, including quiche on the menu, and there's an excellent selection of pies. Yummy!

Hope is a small, but unique town. We are glad we stopped here to sample the pie. It was delicious ! There was a live band setting up that we didn't have time to stay for.

The staff is friendly and attentive, the coffee is tasty and filled often. They even had almond milk for my coffee, when I asked for an alternative to dairy. The first day the plates presented in the Number 1 breakfast was fair. 2 large slices of toast, 2 eggs, a sausage patty, and potatoes. The price was $11 if I... More

We stopped by the Discovery Cafe twice on our stay at a cabin in the area. Had coffee and quiche the first time and coffee and pie the last visit. Both times the meals were excellent. Was thinking the prices were a bit steep until I heard the conversation from the folks in the kitchen. Saying they needed 3 lbs... More

This place is the best. If you're in the area, it's a great place to stop for homemade pie. It's very busy on weekends, but staff keep up and are very helpful. If there's a line, it's worth waiting for a table.

Hope AK is an extremely small town, and the locals said this was the only place to get breakfast. When we visited the name on the front was Titos Discovery Cafe. Fair prices, but portions were very small. I expected many more potatoes. Staff seemed hard pressed to keep up with full tables inside and outside. Staff was very helpful... More
