“Perfect local coffee shop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

This town takes their coffee seriously with numerous drive through expresso stops. This place is worth a trip - great coffee and a do it yourself waffle maker on the counter.

“Great food, even better coffee!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2011

This place uses the best bean in Fairbanks - North Pole Black Gold. I am a regular customer now because my Americano is never too acidic and it is never burnt tasting. Mellow, comforting, and seriously caffeinated.

“A fun place to stop.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2011

Stopped here a few times on my way to and from the airport, after visiting the U of A Museum, and just bumming around town before heading back up the hill to Cleary Summit.

Enjoyed the warm drinks, an occasional snack, and computer access [nope don't own a laptop]. The atmosphere was comfortable and the staff was friendly; only one gal was so bored with everything that she was actually comical.

If I ever make it back to Fairbanks, won't hesitate to stop here again.

“A cup above the rest”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2008

College Coffeehouse is a great place to hang out and drink some coffee. They have live music often and the place seems to attract friendly people. Computers on site for the laptop impaired. Conveniently located next to a laundry mat in case you don't have water. I'd say it's a perfect fit for the area.
