Popped in for a coffee as it was raining. Service was prompt friendly and efficient Coffee was cheap as chips and the cookies were very nice. If you want to soak up some of the local atmosphere pop in and enjoy yourself.

Very low-key family run business. Simple food, very fresh, homemade. Limited menu.Had a great soup. They easily adjusted to gluten-free.

Sorry but Wrangell was 100% accomodating except Zaks. Think it is only for the locals. Went there on my own(husband walking on trails) for lunch. I had never felt so unwelcome and after 5mins with no welcome couldnt get out of there quick enough.

This is small town Alaska at its friendliest. Such nice people! It's a fairly limited menu and a very basic "decor", but the food is freshly prepared and tastes great. Burgers, crispy chicken salad, french toast, omelettes... we enjoyed it all. Visited here for a...More
