Fun and Yummy

Great desserts and easy, good lunch. Friendly staff and over looked the water. Big selection of desserts and pastries. Great location if you are getting off one of the cruise ships. Good, strong coffee- always a plus:).

We stopped by here to fuel up for the grueling (well to us) hike up deer mountain. The coffee was delicious as was the breakfast, I had oatmeal, my wife had eggs and bacon. They also do lunch, sandwiches, wraps, soups etc. They also have great deserts, we had a pecan pastry dish that was to die for. Extremely friendly... More

The coffee was good and they offered both soy and almond milk for the espresso drinks. Over two visits I tried three different baked goods (scone, bread and bar) and all were excellent. I had breakfast this morning (veggie scramble) and it was delicious.

Sweet Mermaids has always great food and coffee. Some may have found it a little small and "cozy". Hey, when you are good, you attract a lot of business. Well now the place is MUCH bigger. Increased seating capacity. It looks great in there. The food is awesome as usual. The owners and the people who work there are fantastic!... More

Visited with my family (wide and kids) plus my parents. Staff was very friendly, food was excellent and freshly homemade. They get 4 out of 5 because of the odd bathroom routine (you have to ask for a key from the counter staff, who can be very busy with customers). I understand in a touristy town like this, you don't... More

The coffee was good. Which was awesome because it was the only one in the neighborhood. Takes a little longer than I am used to, but that's pretty much everything in Ketchikan. Once you get used to taking your time and not being in a hurry, it's quite nice.

The new and improved cafe has now a substantial seating area. This is a great improvement over the somewhat cramped space last year. The food and coffee is still excellent. The atmosphere could be better, this is a very happy place!

I had lunch at Sweet Mermaids with my mom. We each built our own sandwich on a Kaiser roll. The sandwiches were really good.The desserts are good but pricey. The seating area is now more than double in size and filled up quickly at lunch time. The mermaid and sea decor is really cute and adds fun. Nice little spot... More
