They had a nice selection of things. Ice cream seemed to be quite popular. Coffee and lemon-iced pound cake were my choices. They had free Wi-Fi. They had a few tables inside and out in a covered area. Everything is pretty pricy in Alaska and this was no exception, but it hit the spot. Nice to be able to sit... More

Ate lunch here several times during our stay in Ketchikan. Great tasting deli sandwiches made to order. Everything looks to be homemade here - great tasting cookies and excellent coffee selection too.

We popped in for a snack and drink. The bear claw was yummy and so were the coffees. A little pricy at around $5 for a large star bucks style coffee, but we are in Alaska after all. The free WiFi and tables by the window were a nice place to enjoy the view from a heated environment.

I am thankful that this little coffee shop offers free Wifi which is difficult to find in Alaska. It was a rainy afternoon in May. We were so happy to discover Polar Treats inside a small plaza. They set up at least 5 tables in the corridor just for patrons to check emails while warming up with a nice fresh... More

Walked around Ketchikan and stopped for coffee and an awesome macadamia nut cookie. Very nice staff and free wifi too! Lots of seating available and it also away from all the tourist traps.

At the end of the day enjoy a cool treat for a reasonable price in this sweet little retreat. There are tables to sit at and the Internet is free without even having to login so sit down and send some pics home while you indulge in a yummy waffle cone.

Very friendly coffee shop. Nice place to sit and watch the passers by after a day of strolling or shopping. Enjoy a huge delicious homemade cookie or an ice cream along with your regular or specialty coffee.

Picked up a wrap for my sister here the other day. Friendly and fast service, and very good food! They also seem very family friendly and kid friendly, as well have a great selection of food items and coffee drink items!

True confession, I bought the Tuna Salad Sandwich repeatedly because it's great and the alfalfa sprouts instead of lettuce take me back to a day gone by. My Buddy couldn't get past repeating on the Curry Chicken Wrap. We'll have to come back and try more, perhaps next year.
