decided to stop here for lunch after hiking rainforest around Mendenhall Glacier with wife and 2 adolescent children. I had checked out the supper menu so I was a bit disappointed to see that they just have counter service for lunch with sandwiches, salad, or soup options. That being said, the food was excellent. My wife and I shared a... More

Went here with 2 friends last week. The chowder was good but not the best ever, however I then had the salmon collar which was succulent and tasted great.....cooked to perfection. Service great and we had a beaut table by the window.

We stayed in Juneau for 5 nights and The a Rookery was our go-to place. Best espresso in town. Nice lunches with excellent soups and salads. And their dinners were excellent. The scallops in coconut milk and squid in were superb. The cedar plank cooked salmon was excellent. We loved the food and the ambience and the service, more casual... More

We ate breakfast here and enjoyed the variety of croissants and the breakfast burrito was great! Food was warm but not hot but it was still delicious and we debated getting a cookie for breakfast too since they looked so good!

The best place in juneau that we found for dinner. The menu changed regularly and the fish in particular was excellent. Great atmosphere and was full both times that we went so worth booking in advance.

Truth be told we came in for the wi-fi, but got GRRReat coffee and friendly service as well. It was a Sunday, after 17:00, which was quittin' time for other places. It's off the main street, but only slightly. A great find and one of the best and strongest cups of espresso this side of Italy. While we didn't eat... More

At the recommendation of our tour guide Van of Gastineau Guides, we visited recently while walking around in Juneau. Simply the best meal we had in the last week of travel. Our extended family of six enjoyed the Cuban, BLT, halibut and a cheeseburger. Each meal was phenomenal! The service was straight forward but attentive. Finally, the desserts were not... More

We only had coffee and a pastry but they were delightful. The place is clean, and very well kept. It was very busy with the local people but it was the Trip Advisor sign that caught my eye. If others had said it was good, it must be! and it was.

Interesting, unique menu ( if you are there in May get the deep fried beer batter devil's club buds)--good service, good food, interesting ambience. Small place so can be hard to seat a large group for dinner...but Juneau doesn not have the fineset dining and this is one of the best!

I had the planked salmon with maple glaze. My husband had the Korean bibimbap. Both were excellent. What made the experience stand out, however, was the service. Catherine is amazing--knowledgeable, friendly, and always available when needed. Mornings they have coffee and their excellent house-made pastries. Absolutely one of the best places in town.
