Sundog Trading Post Café

The capital city’s most interesting neighborhood has no shortage of stellar spots to stop and savour a cup of coffee. Here, you quickly realize you’re situated near a central subarctic thoroughfare, as floatplanes, sailboats and watercraft zip by in all directions, and houseboaters zig-zag in between, on their daily paddle commute to the mainland. 

The Sundog Trading post is one place that has a seriously great spot on the water looking out to Back Bay.

“Enjoy the log built feel and mix with the locals while you have a enjoy a menu of paninis, soup, salads, homemade ice cream with fresh waffle cones (all made on-site),” says owner Richard McIntosh, who along with his family offer one of the best spots to enjoy ice cream, local tea and espresso coffee.
