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.

Ketchikan is the rain capital of the northwest. The average summer temperature is 55 and rainy. This place is right across the street from berths 1, 2 and 3 and it is by far the best place to stop and grab a hot drink to keep you warm on a gray day. They recently expanded so now there is seating!

I'd been stuck on board with a virus. I wasn't up to our excursion, nor even for much of a walk, but this place was perfect. Despite having four cruise ships at the dock, we weren't full. I didn't mind the wifi charge; otherwise they'd've had people camping out all day to avoid the exorbitant charges on board. Quiet, really... More

We stopped in while our cruise ship was in port. This is a cute place and everyone working there was working hard. We had a very good lunch and loved the atmosphere.

We visited while in port on a cruise. The coffee was great, the bagels delicious. The owner let me try some of her special salmon spread - yum! Definitely the place to go to take a quick break while touring the city.

Good desserts. Would have rated them higher but they charge $5 for wifi even if you buy food. :-(. Everyone that goes there is coming off a cruise ship. Cruise ships charge an insane amount of money for Internet access ($300 for the week in our case) and a local business should cater to their clientele.
