Every day they offer a gluten free pastry, they alternate between muffins and scones. Today it was an almond scone drizzled in dark chocolate. Wow! It was fantastic!

Went in for something for breakfast we were served by who I think was the owner When I asked if the pastry could be warm her response was very unpleasant . She was also quite rude to my husband. We find this quite strange as everyone is usually so pleasant . For this reason I would not recommend this to... More

This is a great place filled with fun gifts, and then it has a bakery and coffee shop in the back. I found some wonderful earrings and sassy t-shirts plus greeting cards as gifts. The clerk seemed to be knew as she was unaware of the price of the t-shirts and the cards. But she was friendly and nice.

Amazing cinnamon rolls! Delicious Quiche (hungry man was so good). Clean facility, plus a nice place to shop too! Double chocolate cookie and ginger molasses were also fantastic!

This is a high quality little cafe tucked at the back of a gift shop and bakery, and the bakery makes some very tempting goodies to go with the coffee. It's a good place for breakfast or lunch. The most pleasant surprise, however, was the professional care taken by the guy making the coffee - a real barista in Seward.... More

My wife and I had breakfast and lunch at the Raven. The bean soup was outstanding and the mushroom/gorgonzola quiche was perfect with it. We had scones and shortbread for breakfast on two different days and both were great. The brewed coffee was also good and strong. Highly recommended over the other bakery near the boats. They have a relatively... More

Stopped here for a quick breakfast of quiche and coffee. Tasty but not cheap. The baked goods looked awesome but we didn't sample them. The location is easy to find being on the main street in Seward.

This was our 1st stop when we arrived in Seward and we needed a caffeine and sugar pick me up. It was nice to get away from the drizzle and the sweet treats were tasty and the coffee hit the spot. I can't remember much about our server but the service was prompt. We browsed through the merchandise after eating... More

Ranting Raven was recommended to us for breakfast and we were not disappointed. The mushroom/gorgonzola quiche was absolutely fabulous - melts in your mouth. The coffee was strong and hot. Took an almond shortbread for dessert later in the day and it, too, melted in our mouths. Stopped there both mornings and am happy we did. Delicious and affordable food.... More
