I've been working off grid an hour North of Fairbanks most of the summer. Every time we came into down I wanted to find a good Internet cafe. However, I could only find Starbucks in noisy shopping areas or coffee huts, that is, until now! I love the quiet calm atmosphere, the service, the drinks, and the good snacks. Wifi... More

This used to be a great place to hear local music, but the new owner has not kept up the monthly performance schedule, either printed or on-line, and almost no one goes there to hear music anymore. The policy of giving a free drink to each band member has been discontinued, so there is little incentive to perform music there.... More

nice place for students to meet and visit. very clean. very quiet. very small! but cozy. i attended a few study groups here. its a coffee shop. no waitress. go up to the counter and order and they will bring the food or coffee to your table or you can stand and wait for it.

This place has a high reputation, but I was unimpressed. Coffee was good, but not exceptional Food was fairly standard. Service was quite poor. Wouldn't recommend.

Nice cozy place. I had soup of the day which was great, coffee and green smoothie. Just a tip: don't order smoothie here , it's mostly water . Other than that this place is good.

Delicious cappuccino. Spacious, a place where locals gather. Rather dark inside, furnishings are dark...dark wood, dark upholstery...just dark. Wifi available, and a lone desktop.

Friendly, Cozy, decent prices, variety, entertaining, meeting place. This is your go-to coffee bar. And yes, the best spicy chai latte. Real flavor, not watered down.

I love this coffee shop! It has super comfy couches (where I'm writing this review from), games, a microwave you can use for your own food, and great drinks! Try the chai with an espresso shot! Wifi is fast too.

I love this place because of the music often shared in the evenings and there coffee and Spicy Chai Tea. There is a collegiate atmosphere mostly which I also like. Once there was more than one public computer, but they have turned that room into a kitchen and serve a variety of wraps, breakfasts and other foods. They also have... More

We liked the atmosphere. Although it was packed with people, it was quiet enough for us to have a conversation.
