While you’re checking out historic downtown Ketchikan, stop in to Sweet Mermaids for a piece of fresh baked pastry and a good cup of Raven’s Brew coffee. It’s right near the cruise ship docks, so you might even see the ship’s crew indulging in a treat. The creative cooks here think up a new lunch sandwich and hearty soup daily, which you can enjoy along with free wi-fi and friendly smiles from the mermaids – whose motto is “We try harder.” Visitors will have to try hard not to pick up some extra sweets for the road. Can you say “fresh salted caramel” or “Croissant Bread Pudding?”

One note: Seating is limited, but if you can’t find a spot inside, there’s also a picnic table across the street.
