Stopped in for lunch one day. The food was very good. The café will get busy at lunch with all the locals eating there.

Very popular with the breakfast crowd. The portions are generous (I think the meal was called Big g or some thing similar. Couldn't finish it). Prices were a bit high, but that should be expected in the bush. Coffee could be stronger.

Good food in a remote place. Salmon is popular in here of course, but check to see what the specials are and pay attention to the other people and what they are eating. This is a great way to pass the time!

My husband and I really enjoyed our visit to Cordova. We ate breakfast and lunch at the Killer Whale and loved the food, coffee and staff. The atmosphere was so wonderful. Looking forward to returning.

GREAT clean diner/cafe only open till 2pm! Breakfast ends at 1030am - and they mean it. Menu items are limited - but GOOD. 1st time I had breakfast burrito - OMG good! Second time, pancakes - they were bigger than your head and delishious. Staff friendly, can be hectic when busy though, as I think there's usually only one staff... More

Panini sandwich, hamburgers, wraps. With great fries and their own special sauce. Meals are usually very fast. Breakfast is homemade grinds. Amazing lattes. The coffee machine turns out great coffees. Prices are a bit high. But the food is worth it.
