This coffee house is across from the bus station, so is a perfect place to wait. Great coffee, relaxed atmosphere and I understand there is music on the weekend.

Loved this place, and tried to get there as often as possible during our 6 day visit to Fairbanks. Not just for coffee, that's good too, but for the desserts! At least for my wife and I, the dessert offering was as good as any...More

There's a pleasant ambience in this cafe but I was very disappointed to receive a lukewarm mug of coffee. I can only assume that I got the bottom of the pot but more care needs to be taken by the barista.

We discovered this adorable coffee shop while we were out walking the first day. We made sure to visit again before we left Fairbanks. You can see why the locals visit with its lovely menu and quirky furnishings. Look for it!

Truly an old fashion styled coffee house. With a stage and tables and chairs around. The place is small and is more of a neighborhood type place where everyone knows everyone. I thought it average for coffee but good for the vibe!

I am one who cringes to see critical reviews, but the coffee here was terrible! It tasted like it was made with water from a stagnant well. It even smelled bad! I should have complained and maybe they would have made it right. The redeeming...More
