There's a pleasant ambience in this cafe but I was very disappointed to receive a lukewarm mug of coffee. I can only assume that I got the bottom of the pot but more care needs to be taken by the barista.

Found this place while we were out walking the night before and decided to try it in the morning. Cup of coffee and a bagel were average, but they also made Mexican/Mayan/Aztec Chocolate, a hot unsweetened chocolate with cayenne pepper. That will wake you up!

We discovered this adorable coffee shop while we were out walking the first day. We made sure to visit again before we left Fairbanks. You can see why the locals visit with its lovely menu and quirky furnishings. Look for it!

After three years I finally made it back to Fairbanks. While bumming around town I decided to revisit McCafferty's. The service was as friendly as on prior visits and the cappuccino was as good as I remember. Definitely recommend!

Just the place for a drop-in coffee, tea or a hot chocolate. Friendly, warm, appreciative and helpful staff, in a cosy environment.

McCafferty's is a cozy little shop in DT Fairbanks. The staff is friendly, helpful to visitors, and delivers service with a smile. That said, I wasn't entirely impressed with the espresso I ordered (it was extremely bitter!) and the pastries they have for sale are...More
