“A Great Local Cafe”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

We ate at the Larkspur Cafe several times during our 4-5 day stay in Sitka. It's located at the end of the main street in a building shared with a radio studio. It's casual, as you'd expect in Sitka, with excellent locally prepared food. We especially enjoyed the chowder. One night there was some entertainment by a local guitarist/singer and the cafe was filled with locals as well.

We talked to the owner who owned the Larkspur and like many Alaskans her background includes working on and then owning a fishing boat. A very friendly and interesting person.

We'd definitely recommend the Larkspur to anyone who visits Sitka.

“Quaint Location”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

The little shop is nice and the food was fairly good. The tables were dirty and our food order got mixed up. It is likely a situation where people are not adequately trained or experienced.

“A fun, local eatery”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

We had a delicious lunch at the Larkspur. It is obviously a local favorite. We shared a huge panini and each had a bowl of the salmon chowder. The chowder could have used more salmon and less potatoes, but was still tasty. It is in a great old building near the water, although has no real views to speak of. Long tables are shared when the lunch crowd arrives, so you can enjoy making new friends while you eat!
