Dropped in for a coffee on the way to the glacier. It was busy and there was a small delay but understandable. Coffee was very nice to our Australian taste buds. Staff were friendly. Looks lie a good place for lunch. Prices seemed average.

We had some time before finding out we weren't going to fly and this place hit the spot for breakfast. Chai tea and eggs benedict with mushrooms filled the spot. Antique posters if you are looking for quirky. Great staff.
