Side Street Espresso
412 G St
Anchorage, AK 99501 USA
A great stop for coffee between my B&B and the conference I was attending. They were pretty quick during my early visits, serving Kaladi coffee (IIRC) without the questionable information. Nice general feel even though I didn't have much chance to sit down and enjoy it. I'm pretty sure they're cash-only, but their far-lower-than-travelling-ATM-fees prices made that a non-issue for me.
They also had a dwindling supply of the Alaska Quarterly Review … I helped shrink it to their last copy, and I definitely recommend reading the AQR. Good mix of writing from all over with enough Alaska writers to keep its own character. Side Street also were hosting the finalist photos from an Alaskan photography competition, which made it an even better stop for this visitor.
