“Worth the trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

The Point is about a mile north of downtown Ketchikan. You have to call them and the owner, Terry, will come pick you up in their shuttle van. Seems a bit inconvenient but totally worth the effort! Great shop with beautiful artwork and stained glass hangings done by Terry, a nice little yarn shop, and a yummy cafe with the best red velvet cupcakes ever! It's a great setting on the water and away from all the overpriced commercialism that has overtaken many of the Inside Passage towns. Also the only local yarn shop that I know of. Make the trip!

“Bald eagles viewing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Check this place out if you are interested to photo shoot the bald eagles. This cafe is not only a charming village cafe where you meet the friendly locals having coffee but you can also get a lovely clear view of the bald eagles teaching their young to dive in the sea for food. When we were there a flock of 12 bald eagles were busy diving...wow it was really a bonus for eagle photographers like us. The locals are so friendly. It was raining when we decided to get back to our cruise ship and the owner despite that she was busy , dropped everything and gave us a lift back to the pier for free. They offered free shuttle to and from the pier. So if you are interested to check out this place gave them a call or just take a 15-20 minutes walk

“funky lunch and coffee house”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We only found this place because it had been recommended, a bit "tucked away" but very busy once we found it. Fun menu and great coffee. We enjoyed the artwork, bead work and were charmed by the musicians playing at lunchtime. The view was amazing, altogether a charming experience.

“Gormet food, great for lunch.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

I love the food at the Point. One benifit to having a small menu is that the food is always fresh and delicious. The only issue I have had was finding a seat during the lunch rush.

“A gem in Ketchikan.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

A charming little shop away from the touristy areas but easy to get to from the port. A combination of cafe, art gallery, bead and yarn shop, and scenic photo spot. I had a wonderfully prepared latte, stepped out back to take in the scenery and watch float planes land, browsed the art pieces throughout the shop, and bought some unique beads to take home.

From our cruise ship we walked up Front St, through the tunnel, and took a short bus ride the rest of the way to The Point.
