Nice, somewhat urban coffee shop

Here you could be in Seattle or Portland. Spacious, light, good choices, excellent coffee, limited but very good breakfast choices. Now as for an upfront $5, 1-hr wi fi charge... get real Mermaids. Across from Cruise ships near Gilmore hotel.

My family and I took a fun little break from hiking and exploring Ketchikan to grab some coffee and a snack from Sweet Mermaids. We'd heard great things and weren't disappointed. The staff was very friendly, and the coffee and food were great! We didn't eat lunch or breakfast there, but the menu looked awesome.

Sweet Mermaids is a very busy place mid-morning, but the staff is friendly and efficient. The short wait in line is worth it! The coffee is excellent, and we also recommend the Flat Mermaid: a folded flour tortilla containing scrambled eggs, cheese, and grilled vegetables with sour cream, salsa, and a fruit cup on the side. For us, the 12-inch... More

We visited this cafe after a day in town during our Alaska cruise. The decor is really fun, especially if you love mermaids (like me!). The service is fairly friendly, but the staff seemed a bit bored and unfocused - they definitely could work on their enthusiasm. We shared a quesadilla, and that was a great, satisfying snack. There's no... More

Cant really tell you what the foods like because this place closes at 4.00 pm and apparently closes the kitchen an hour earlier and its too hard to prepare food after 3.00 pm ! Bad luck if you want something other than coffee or cake in the afternoon ! Some businesses apparently manage to survive in spite of themselves !!

My family and I had to check this place out to see if it really was as good as other people say....it is. I think I had oatmeal cookies with butterscotch chips.....mmmm. Everyone was friendly lots of people there. The checker asked where we were from then told us she had family that lived near us. Just a nice place... More

I was impressed they were able to accommodate my special request and received fresh berries to go with my Greek yogurt. They have breakfast sandwiches, muffins, many items to choose from including an array of drinks including lattes, etc.

These ladies sure do know how to whip up some great breakfast food, cookies, and treats. I had the "Mermaid" breakfast burrito, and it was so good! Everything is hand-made from scratch right in their little kitchen, and they take great pride in doing right by the customer. They offer a great selection of wonderful cookies, too.

Not only were coffee and pastries yummy but the service was great. Each morning we stopped in the place is very busy due to the cruise line traffic and staff manage with smiles. Their maple and blueberry scones are awesome. From austin texas.
