Had the crab cakes eggs benedict. Absolutely wonderful, would order again. The french toast was also very good. Roasted yukon gold potatoes were very dry. Food very expensive. Be prepared to spend some money.

We were a party of 8. I came later than the others. I asked a number of questions about gluten free options. The server was very relaxed helping me. I wasn't hungry for much so I ordered their homemade potatoes/hash style. When the other orders were served my eyes became bigger seeing the size of the portions. If you're like... More

Nice clean small restraint approx. 40 4 tops or so. Not so friendly staff mostly due to the fact that they know most guests are single time visitors from the Cruise Ship industry. That fact leads to the normal Juneau overpricing I referred to in the title.

This popular restaurant was next to the Driftwood Hotel so was convenient every morning for breakfast. Loved the way they've renovated the inside to suit travelers in their city. Food was fabulous which included salmon omelette and to die for French toast. Service was fast and always friendly. Expect a bit of a wait on the weekends but worth it.

Hands down best breakfast in Juneau. We had the salmon omelet and it was perfect. We went on recommendation from the front desk agent at our Hotel. Check it out!

....despite multiple empty tables, we were kept waiting for over 30 minutes while the person in charge of seating wandered about the restaurant looking confused and dazed and ignoring waiting customers. Eventually we were seated--at a table that had been empty the entire time we were waiting. At one point we counted six empty tables, while a line of customers... More

I was in Juneau for a quick work trip. I asked my local client where they would recommend and this was it. I had the carb cake Benedict and it was very good. The place was packed, but a great quick lunch.
