It was late and most places were shutting down after our Tundra Wildlife Tour of Denali, but we were able to catch a quick bite at the Black Bear Coffee House before hitting the road back to Fairbanks. Cute little coffee house and each of us really enjoyed our meal! It was actually one of our better meals on the... More

this is across the street from the Princess Denali Wilderness lodge and the food was overpriced and cold with very limited menu. I would recommend eating breakfast at one of the lodge restaurants.

Great coffee, try the Americano! Several Gluten free options on the menu. Pleasant coffee house atmosphere with free wifi. If I closed my eyes this place could be an in upscale urban location.

Located in a long strip of gift, tour, and eatery establishments that make up the "town." Great breakfast, great wi-fi.

This cute coffee shop dead in the center for tacky tourist shops is a great place to grab a snack and coffee away from the busy hotels. This is also a nice place to dump the husband to have a beer while you finish up grabbing your gifts. Great outdoor deck seating.

My sister and I stopped in at this coffee house after a tour guide had pointed out a few places to go to during our visit to the area. I had the Mocha Breve, which I thought was very good. Don't ask me what it is exactly, as I missed the description and just picked something I had never heard... More

Alaska is expensive, but this restaurant had some reasonably priced (for Alaska) breakfasts. It's small and crowded, but if you just want to grab a quick meal and coffee, this is a good place to go. The food was substantial and the staff pleasant.

This place has good reviews? I do not know why? We had dinner here and the food was at best mediocre. It was not hot and almost completely devoid of taste. At Denali you are hard pressed to find good food. You will not find it here and it is a shame because their menu looks good and it offers... More
