Polar treats has wonderful lunch foods...my favorite being the Club Panini. Great staff, great prices and the ice cream is to die for!

Homemade waffle cones and delicious ice creams. For one stop shopping there were cute souvenirs available as well.

We recently ate at Polar Treats for the second time in six years while in port on a cruise ship. Unfortunately, little has changed in six years. The sandwiches and wraps are still very bland and very overpriced, despite an enthusiastic recommendation from a local. My club sandwich on sourdough had zero flavor and the bread tasted more like white... More

This is second time we have visited in 6 months. The coffee, food and ice cream are good. Staff is friendly until you pull out your wifi tablet. They offer free wifi if you purchase food. But the minute you sit down to eat they ask you to step outside if you have your tablet. I can understand the desire... More

We've eaten here several times in the past year. I always order the Thai chicken wrap. My husband usually has the roast beef and chile panini. The portions are good-sized and the ingredients seem fresh. A wrap is about ten bucks, as is a sandwich. It's a 'pay-at-the-counter-get-your-own-drink" sort of place. There are just a couple of tables, but they... More

We stopped her for coffee and ice cream! Both were very good and fresh. We also had the added bonus of free wi-fi! The employees were very kind and met our needs quickly. Nice visit.

We were shocked how this town has gone out of the hands of the local people. Looks like the cruise companies own everything, the businesses are conducted by seasonal people, leaving during winter... This is all about diamonds and tourists stuff, exactly as if you were in the Bahamas ... So we started to look for stores owned by locals... More

I have had a bagel sandwich and a wrap here. Both were very tasty. The Greek wrap was really, really good but with a little more rice than necessary. My friend, whom I was eating with, told me that her taco wrap didn't have enough rice. My only big complaint is pay $10+ for a bagel sandwich, that just seems... More

Coming from the big city I was used to good coffee and this place delivered the goods. They also seemed to have other good things to order and they were concerned about good service.
