Went here a couple times while in Skagway and it was just like it was when I was here eight years ago. A bit pricy, but everything in Alaska is. Nice people working here and fast service. Great place. Enjoy!

Was in Skagway for 3 days with a group of volleyball players. We ate the majority of my meals here. Great fresh ground coffee with coffee specialties to order. Breakfast bagels were assorted and delicious. Fresh juices, smoothies and fruit, along with varied teas both hot and cold. Sandwiches to order were wonderfully fresh and delicious. Staff was pleasant, patient... More

We were in port for the day and planned to hike the local trails for most of the day. We wandered past this place bright and early and decided to pop in because it had that honest local feel to it. I ordered a hot chocolate and a bacon & egg biscuit. Both were good and just what I needed... More

Yum! Monster bagel sandwich and a smoothy. Great little spot to grab some grub and go. Everything on the menu is good. You want go wrong.

I stopped in here many times in August during a work trip to grab some breakfast on the go! A gentleman recommended to try the veggie breakfast burrito with bacon. I know it sounds strange but it was fantastic! The prices were not bad either! For a touristy place like Skagway it was nice to find a place with good... More

This place was a surprise. Looks fairly plain from the outside but the wraps and sandwiches are delicious.

Good grabs for the ferry. Both veggie and meaty options. Wish I had time to try a smoothie. Bummed they just ran out of the butternut squash wrap. Hummus wrap and Italian sandwich were excellent and reasonably priced.

Maybe we should have ordered lunch since I see so many good reviews for dining. But we stopped in for coffee and lattes while walking around Skagway when our cruise ship was docked. While the taste was good....... these hot drinks were lukewarm at best. Very disappointed.

We asked a local store owner where we could get a quick sandwich and she directed us to this store. Prices weren't bad and the sandwiches were really nice size. If you are not really that hungry, I would suggest splitting a sandwich. If we would have know how big they were, that's what we would have done. They are... More
