When we came back from the Denali towards Anchorage, we stopped at this Cafe to buy a coffee to go. The place was very beautiful and the staff very friendly. I believe, that choosing their cabins for accommodation might also be great.

Walked across from the cabins across the street, best breakfast burrito I ever had. Service was nice and baked goods we took for the road were great.

Stayed at the Creekside Cabins and had both Dinner and Breakfast at the Cafe and Wow! Dinner was just awesome with great service and large portions. Breakfast was just as good, with home-baked goods and full breakfast menu items. No negatives about this Cafe!

We stopped here on recommendations of the locals. The breakfast was wonderful. We all had the skillet breakfasts. I would strongly suggest stopping here to eat while on your trip.
