Great cakes and other treats.

This is a great place for handmade cookie bars, favorite cakes and pies, along with a very nice cup of.espresso. it is very difficult not to take home at least 3 different items.from here whenever I visit. They're local, they're friendly and this shop is highly Recommended!

My family went to this restaurant to have some breakfast before venturing into Ketchikan. We had this breakfast that was really good. It was different but very tasty. I am not a big locs and bagel fan but my son and daughter-in-law ordered this and it was soo good. very good restaurant and worth checking out when in Ketchikan.

Great espresso, and variety of pastry, also some light meal items like soup and bagel. They also have pop and tea for non coffee drinkers. You need the fresh taste of Danish or cookies for refreshment to get back to the shopping or tour events.

We didn't want a full breakfast, just a quick muffin and a latte. Sweet Mermaids is right next to the Gilmore Hotel, very handy to all the tourist shops downtown. Good quick service and great latte and muffins!

Love the atmosphere, very beautiful decor, all underwater themed, and right next to the ocean, it makes sense. Great staff and very kind service. Excellent food for breakfast menu, good value and portions.
