I've noticed that meals in Alaska always seem to lack veggies and after 8 days here, I was dying. So glad I stumbled on this cafe. Outstanding food reasonably priced for the area

Happened to be in the area when shopping at REI...and stumbled upon this bustling cafe next door. What a lucky find. Order at the counter and find a table. The sandwiches are delicious but huge. We didn't realize we could order half size (which I recommend). The turkey cranberry on gluten free bread was delightful and I was so happy... More

I have eaten here many times over the years. Their breakfast is usually quite good. You can get thing with breakfast that are not available many places. However, my wife and I were here for lunch today. I ordered the lamb burger today. First time I ever got this sandwich. It was very good. Probably the best sandwich I have... More

We did some research on Tripadvisor ahead of time to find a lunch spot with some healthy and vegetarian choices. This restaurant is not fancy; it's in a bustling strip shopping center and is "fast casual" style (You order food at a counter and food is prepared and brought to your table). They were quite busy at lunch time but... More

Delicious smoothies, a large variety of baked goods, good soup. I'm full and happy. Many gluten free and vegan option as well.

Located in a strip center, so doesn’t look like much. Come inside & it’s a large popular restaurant with a broad menu. Specialties include salads & salmon burger. Fast counter service. ‘Hippie’/ organic vibe with emphasis on healthy food.

We stopped in here to find a band playing (wonderfully by the way) and food that was amazing. Wife had been here before but I hadn't so I didn't know what to expect. Food and desert was fine. I will return next time I have the opportunity.

Fun place to get some good healthy food. You order at the counter and find your own table or seat. Good food but not inexpensive.

When I don't feel like cooking breakfast, I go to Middle Way Cafe. I always enjoy seeing the new art on the walls from local artists. The food is usually very delicious, and they can make a latte without burning the coffee.Try something off the specials board, which has never let me down. A great place where all the locals...
