Asked a Local where to eat ,they sent us here. Can enter thru the front of the Book store or go round to the back. Small homey feel.

Opens very early, usually has homemade pie until its gone. Expresso drinks and pie for breakfast is a good combination. Often full of locals, and twice we shared tables with Sitka folks, learning something about the community, what its like to live there. Fun, for example, there is a bear that hangs out in the woods right behind the elementary school play field where one young girl goes to school. She nodded affirmation as her Dad told the story. If you want eggs and bacon, not the place. Later in the day, the cafe attaches to the bookstore, a twofer.

The best coffee we found in Sitka, in a relaxed, friendly and comfortable atmosphere. The brownie was really yummy, and the people-watching good.

As always, my wife and i ordered cappuccino. It was the best that we had during our three-week-long holiday in Alaska. Not a standard USA bitter double espresso with too much milk, but a single shot with perfectly steamed milk. Not as good as in Italy, but very enjoyable with their excellent strawberry-blackberry bar.

A bunch of us were looking for a good cup of coffee and found this place - great coffees. They were baking a bunch of pies and quiches and the aromas were incredible. Food looked good but didn't try. Not much seating and very cramped waiting area. We got our coffees to go.
