Relaxed Place to have a coffee or Sandwich

Really needed to use WIFI as we were on the cruise ship and did not have access. I was told that I would need to purchase something in order to use the WIFI. I intended on and bought a cafe mocha, but when I asked about the WIFI, I was told that there was no password. There were dozens of... read more

This is a good spot to relax in Ketchikan during a cruise trip stop. This family run place has excellent local coffee and free wifi so it's a great place to get caught up on email, social media, etc. during a cruise trip stop. It's about a five minute walk from the piers but doesn't get a huge volume of... More

Just stopped by for a snack but really enjoyed my sourdough bread grilled cheese and perfectly made coffee topped off with a Marian berry scone. The girl who served me said she didn't know what Marian berries were but they were real good-and they were

We had a great turkey panini here. The owner/staff were very friendly. The ingredients were fresh. The prices were appropriate. I would definitely recommend polar treat for lunch.

This place was recommended to go for a snack. Wound up getting a grilled cheese sandwich. Tasted good. Wanted coffee however drip coffee means coffee from a coffee maker not actually a V60 drip

We were in Ketchikan for a few hours and wanted a bite to eat. We decided on a wrap from Polar Treats. The place was busy, clean and the service great. We ordered the Smoked Salmon wrap which was really good. If you are after a healthy lunch followed by a naughty ice cream this is the place.

Sandwiches, wraps, paninis, ice cream, scones, pretzels. Lots of options of "food to go" inside a gallery, nothing exceptional but good when you have little time to see the city or when you are leaving for a trip. Free wifi.

Angelina at Polar Treats makes the best Panini's and Wraps I have ever had. Try the Teriyaki Wrap...yummy! Or build your own Panini...my favorite is Pastrami and Swiss with a bit of butter. Heated up on the Panini grill till the bread is crispy...amazing! Add one of their white chocolate macadamia nut cookies for a sweet treat. They also have... More

I think they said something about Tuesday is delivery day. So if you get there after say, Friday, your selection probably is going to be limited. Otherwise, nice place with nice folks working there. Would definitely go back.
