This small-town coffee shop features couches, comfortable tables, and a fireplace, along with top-quality coffee, tea, and baked goods. It's definitely a local hangout: friends chat, teens do their homework, and the baristas know most everyone.
Pizza's the specialty here, and Pizza Man does it well. The sauce is a nice combination of sweet and spicy, and they'll make the dough with whole wheat, if you ask. They also serve "schooners" of beer.
Don't let the strip-mall exterior throw you—inside, you'll find very good Greek and Italian food, including pizzas, salads, dolmas, and lasagnas. Coming here with little ones? They'll love the kids' pizza, and you'll love the price.
The nationwide ice cream chain has several locations in Anchorage and one in Eagle River. You'll find the same great ice cream here, made fresh on site with creative flavors. It's a treat on hot summer days and even in sub-zero winters!
