Larkspur Café Sitka Reviews
Out on a lark... Jun 23, 2012
A pleasant café located just beyond the main strip on the way out of town (hang a left as you head towards O’Connell Bridge), the Larkspur’s primary attraction is the cozy atmosphere. An old cottage house fashionably decorated, we dined on the front porch overlooking the water and felt totally at peace. The rare sunny day in Sitka had everyone in good spirits, so being surrounded by happy patrons probably contributed to the good vibe as well.
And the fine beer selections likely contributed to the happiness, creating an endless circle of wellbeing. There were quite a few varieties offered, including draught selections featuring local Alaskan brews. The wine list wasn’t as deep, but the prices appeared reasonable.
Though we didn’t opt for drinks we looked forward to our selections with mixed results upon delivery. I thoroughly enjoyed my Beni Wan, a spicy meatball sandwich, but Kim’s blackened halibut was slightly disappointing. Though she deemed the seasoning excellent, the fish was a bit dry which should be the least concern when you are ordering it here. Perhaps the halibut disappointed only because expectations were so high, but between that and the somewhat inattentive service the eatery didn’t make it to our hall of fame.
Minor quibbles, though, and it was overall a good experience. We probably just needed to sample a few beers.
