Review -

So excited to find this place start up in-between my 5 year layoff from visiting Juneau. A cool spot centrally located (virtually everything is in Juneau) with a long table down the center that accommodates the alarming amount of cruise ship people needing free internet. The art on the wall is minimal, but the wall paper is very cool with stenciled trees and crows and a huge mural above the bar, making this place great on the eyes. Even better for the eyes, is when I saw the La Marzocco machine and Stumptown coffee signage. However, I was confused when they did not have an 8 oz cup on the menu, and I had to specifically ask for it. The coffee itself had good color, with a small rosetta, but was to hot and the flavor was really disappointing. Very weak cup considering that they have all the right things in place to make a killer drink. At the very least, it was drinkable and accompanied with one of the delicious pastries they sell, it turned out to be a very good experience. They also have light lunch stuff like soup, pie, pastries, sandwiches and beer on tap. Great to see that quality coffee has made it’s way up to the last frontier. Can’t wait till they hammer out the kinks.
