My office frequently orders breakfast from River City. Their waffles are killer, and their raspberry lemonade is addictive. As a local, I appreciate that they sometimes host musical events in the winter. So many places shut down in the off season that it is nice to see a small business so invested in the community.

Our tour bus stopped in downtown Fairbanks for lunch stopover. We chose the River City Cafe as it was one of the recommendations from our guide. We had the Turkey Club wraps, Italian Hoagie, and the BLT sandwich. With the influx of tour buses hitting the down town, we feared slower service but they were quick and efficient. Sandwiches were fresh, and choices were plenty. Highly recommend this cafe!

While staying overnight in Fairbanks on a Holland America tour, we happened upon this little coffee shop and decided to stop in for a cup of tea and a bite to eat. The place seemed to be frequented by a lot of locals which, to me, indicates it is a good bet for food. I chose the blueberry scone and I have to honestly say it was the best scone I've ever had. It was tender, light, and flavorful. It isn't a fancy place but nice enough for a coffee shop. Get out of the hotel and enjoy a cup of coffee and a treat here. You won't regret it!

Based on reviews here, we had expected a great coffee and breakfast place. The coffee was wonderful. But they have very few breakfast options, only microwaved burritos and breakfast sandwiches.

We had our first breakfast in Alaska here. The food and coffee were both very good and the service was quick and friendly.
