Loved this place for breakfast. Best biscuits I have ever had!

We were staying nearby and walked here twice in our two day Denali adventure. They had the best food and the service was excellent.

This is a little coffee shop that serves breakfast and baked goods. We both enjoyed our meals and the coffee was excellent. Counter service staff were very friendly. I would go back if ever in Denali again!

We stumbled upon this place once we realized our lodging didn't have breakfast and were hoping we didn't have to resort to Subway. Excellent coffee and breakfast - I had lox on a bagel and my husband had a breakfast burrito. After stumbling around Glitter Gulch waiting for our bus, we ate there again for lunch. I had a panini...

You never know what you are going to get when you stop at the local shops. My wife needed some coffee so we decided to give it a try. The baristas really know their stuff, complete with whip cream shapes on your brew. The banana nut bread was so good, we wished we had purchased another couple slices of some... More

I was staying next door at the Denali Lodge and dropped in for Coffee in the early morning. Coffee was excellent! Just a note however the shop gets really super busy in the morning so it may look quiet outside but it gets busy, it is somewhat quieter during the day (all day) but it's still hopping!

This is a charming, but small cafe. They offer both indoor and outdoor seating. The prices are comparable to other local places. We ate here on different occasions for breakfast and lunch. The Goldilocks (bagel and lox) was very delicious and worth the price, as was the cappuccino and hot chocolate. The cafe staff were extremely nice and they offer... More

We had breakfast here on way to Fairbanks: Bohemian Breakfast, Breakfast Bearrito, and Open Bagel with Hummus. Everything was delicious and freshly prepared. However, the best part of the experience was the view of the mountains across the street. It seems like the designers of this line of stores had the right idea in ensuring a magnificent view of the... More

They accommodate modern dietary needs and serve very tasty breakfasts. Quick service too. Probably your best choice on the "downtown strip"

my husband and I came upon this delightful artsy restaurant in Denali while exploring the tiny shops. The menu is eclectic and the food devine. The chicken, lentil soup was delectable. Should you find yourself in this neck of the woods, do yourself a favor and eat here. You won't be disappointed.
