In the mornings, you can come enjoy a home style breakfast, complete with scratch buttermilk biscuits, and for lunch and dinner it's southern style slow smoked BBQ with all the fixins. Our case is always full of fresh, scratch pastries from our in-house bakery. And you should come check out our deli case for fast fresh food to take on your adventures. If you're coming off a busy day, just grab a local beer or glass of wine to enjoy while you linger on our deck, breathe deep and take in the mountains.

“Excellent fresh food and coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Everything is baked fresh each day so the menu varies. The lemon blueberry muffins are to die for. The scones and oatmeal cookies are also excellent. They also make fresh sandwiches that are great for taking on the park tour.

“Good breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

This is a good breakfast option if you're staying near the park entrance and don't want to eat at your hotel. Food was good and much better priced than what was offered at our hotel.

“Respite From Lodge Meals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Found this cute coffee shop across from the Princess Denali Lodge. Reasonable price for egg and cheese on an english muffin or a bagel with several kinds of cream cheese. Don't have to deal with only sweets for breakfast. We didn't have lunch so o nly can review breakfast. Kindly mixed skim and whole milk to make me reduced fat milk. No other restaurant ever offered that.

“Great coffee and breakfast option in Denali”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Lovely place for coffee! We stopped in for breakfast. Good breakfast sandwich, pastries and other baked goods. An affordable option in Denali. They also serve lunch and have grab-n-go options that looked delicious. Appreciated that they offered gluten-free and healthier food options.

“Great Coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

We just stopped by fro breakfast and were pleasantly surprised. The coffee was excellent and the breakfast sandwich was tasty. There were only sandwiches for breakfast, but they were very good. The eggs were scrambled and baked in a pan. They then cut a generous portion of eggs and added a nice slab of cheese and sausage as well. There was also free Wi-Fi.
