We ate at Sweet Mermaids twice. The staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is welcoming. They have great quesadillas. We tried the veggie quesadill and the chicken quesadilla. They even made them extra fast so that we could cacth the bus to Totem Bight.

This was the only coffee place open during our week stay. We ordered coffee and a sweet roll, both were very good. A popular spot with locals. Saw several breakfast's that look delicious and the sandwiches are large and look good as well. Very nice little place and would definitely return.

Good coffee, good homemade soup, excellent bagel with lox, friendly service. And, of course, lots of mermaid themed decorations.

I called from Wisconsin and ordered a cake for my son in Ketchikan. Not only was the cake delicious, but those Sweet Mermaids made sure that it was delivered on time and the surprise I wanted it to be! Way to go ladies!

I had to take some Macaroon's home to Washington. The baked goods are to die for, coffee service is a bit slow, but well worth the wait. I would recommend to anyone. Family friendly, not too many spots to sit inside.

We ate a wonderful, tasty breakfast there. Coffee is good and strong with real cream served. Central location. The place was packed with a mixture of locals and tourists. Highly recommended.
