We stopped on a recommendation from the tour director and the food is very wholesome with large servings and very pleasant staff even though they were flat out and had more customers than tables.I was willing to wait a few minutes and was rewarded by a lovely meal of soup and fresh bread with fruit on the side.

Good location in downtown Fairbanks, across from the river. Good views, with large windows It serves as a fudge shop, gift shop, coffee bar and serves light lunches like soups and sandwiches The staff felt sleepy and unenthusiastic about working. It felt a bit unfriendly. It's very cluttered with cheap gift shop trinkets and unpacked boxes scattered around. Coffee and... More

Quite a popular place for tourists for a quick snack/sandwich/cake plus a coffee. I'm not a great sandwich eater but it was fine. Staff polite and well organised for the 'rush'. Orders taken whist queuing and nice to sit down for 30 minutes. Very efficient.

Just around the corner from the Ice Museum in Downtown Fairbanks, the Fudge Pot is a cute little shop with a wide selection of cheesy souveniers, local art, and fudge. Oh, and they have sandwiches and soups. The perfect combination, really. They have quite a bit of seating and it's all by huge picture windows, so you can see the... More

Awesome food overall. We had the soup of the day (salmon) and sandwiches are great! Place is real small for the popularity of the place.

This is a candy lovers dream! All kinds of sweets here but especially the fudge which comes in a variety of flavors. It is soft and yummy and very reasonably priced. They also have sandwiches and soups but we didn't try that.

Nice, small cafe. The fudge was AMAZING. They also have sandwiches, which were fine, nothing that stood out with them. Nice place to stop for a snack!

This place was recommended for ice cream. We had a really yummy swirl of Alaskan Blueberry and Vanilla soft ice cream. Not wanting a big meal for dinner, we returned later that evening for delicious soups: salmon chowder and chicken and rice and a BLT.

Stopped by for coffee and breakfast. We had a slice of banana bread and coffee. My coffee was not very good, it was a mocha, which was basically a shot of espresso and a scoop of hot chocolate mix. It was not hot enough and just did not taste very good. My husband had a regular coffee, and his was... More

I stopped in while waiting for my ride. They had a number of novelty items I had seen in other sites in the area and they were cheaper so I made lots of purchases. Really nice staff. Really nice location.
