Our tour bus stopped nearby and we just happened to go there...excellent sandwiches prepared for you after you order them at the counter (glass cases hold many choices of homemade fudges...
looked really good but a large caramel apple caught our eyes, they sliced it and served it at the small tables inside with our sandwiches). For a small sandwich/fudge/gift shop, they do an excellent job serving many people. Don't let a long line outside the doors fool you, it's worth the short wait to get served.

We ate at the River City Café and sat outside. You can access it from either street. Good soup and meatball sandwich and French dip. Desserts looked really good.

Excellent sandwiches with a "hole in the wall" ambiance. Convenient location in "downtown" Fairbanks. We ate here a total of 3 times while in Fairbanks because the food was good and the location so convenient

We stayed at Springhill Suites and were searching for coffee one very cold morning before a sled dog race on 2nd Ave. We went to this cafe based on a local's recommendation and loved it so much we went back several times during the week for coffee, breakfast, and lunch. The menu is varied with breakfasts, soups, salads, and sandwiches. Our lattes were always perfect, and the breakfast and lunch wraps were terrific. In addition, the cafe folks were very friendly and efficient. There were always a number of customers, a mixture of locals and tourists, which was a positive sign. We recommend this cafe highly and hope to go back if traveling to Fairbanks again.

They have a variety of food to choose from and its within walking distance to most downtown shops. I like having a variety working in the downtown area. We also have local events and it helps tourist find food easily.
