Coffee shop character. Great Coffee, personable baristas, and a good place to meet with friends and kick back. Interesting food selection.

The baristas were really friendly. I get nervous going into a more local coffee shop to work when I am traveling, but this place was the exception. The coffee was great and they had a huge menu. I didn't order any food but people around me had some great looking food. I did get harassed momentarily by a drunk homeless... More

Came here for a latte and also ordered the breakfast burrito. The coffee was good and the burrito was excellent. Warm, cheesy and filled with eggs and bacon.

One of the only traditional coffee house in Fairbanks and I love it! This place is everything that a coffee shop should be, cozy atmosphere, comfy couches, free wifi, and yummy drinks! They even have Jet Smoothies, which are the total best!

I've been working off grid an hour North of Fairbanks most of the summer. Every time we came into down I wanted to find a good Internet cafe.

This used to be a great place to hear local music, but the new owner has not kept up the monthly performance schedule, either printed or on-line, and almost no one goes there to hear music anymore. The policy of giving a free drink to each band member has been discontinued, so there is little incentive to perform music there.... More

nice place for students to meet and visit. very clean. very quiet. very small! but cozy. i attended a few study groups here. its a coffee shop. no waitress. go up to the counter and order and they will bring the food or coffee to your table or you can stand and wait for it.

This place has a high reputation, but I was unimpressed. Coffee was good, but not exceptional Food was fairly standard. Service was quite poor. Wouldn't recommend.

Nice cozy place. I had soup of the day which was great, coffee and green smoothie. Just a tip: don't order smoothie here , it's mostly water . Other than that this place is good.

Delicious cappuccino. Spacious, a place where locals gather. Rather dark inside, furnishings are dark...dark wood, dark upholstery...just dark. Wifi available, and a lone desktop.
